WASHINGTON (AP) -- No one is safe from identity theft, not even the chairman of the Federal Reserve.
Ben Bernanke's personal checking account became entangled in an elaborate identity-theft scheme after his wife Anna's purse was stolen last August at a Capitol Hill Starbucks. According to a District of Columbia police report, it contained her Social Security card, checkbook, credit cards and IDs.

I guess it comes down to who you think of as the lesser of the two evils.
