WikiLeaks founder signs book deals worth $1.5 million

WHO: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange
WHAT: Assange told Britain’s Sunday Times that he has signed deals for his autobiography that are worth more than $1.5 million. The money, he said, would help Assange defend himself against allegations of sexual assault made by two women in Sweden.
WHY IT’S AN OUTRAGE: Assange has often claimed that he never wants to make money from running the whistle-blower website, but the book deal certainly goes against that stance. “I don’t want to write this book, but I have to,” he said.
