Megaupload, the huge "file-sharing" site recently shut down by the US Government, had many users in the DOJ and the US Senate.
Justice for the Dept of Justice.... and a little bit of preferential treatment thrown in just to make them look worse.
In a similar 'you couldn't make it up' vein - Chinese spies used fake Facebook profile to friend NATO officials
From the same department...
The Alexa page for this site says:

Bah! Alexa. I've had more arguments about that idiocy than I care to remember. Anyway, apart from the fact that it's biased towards users with the Alexa toolbar, it's also got quite a strong US bias - same as Quantcast et al. If your sites aren't aimed at an American audience or a webmastery-type, then the stats are not just misleading, they're downright annoying and damaging because they can put potential advertisers off your site.

One day a young bride of Madras
Felt somewhat reducéd in class
When her neat derriere
Was comparéd somewhere
To Jennifer Aniston's ass
"So what" said the maiden, dismayed,
"Makes the Aniston feature displayed
"So much better than mine -
Is it built up with pine?
Or perhaps it is nicely inlaid?"
Quoth her husband, a master of spin,
"It's naturally shaped, though she's thin -
Whereas yours, m'dear, looks
Like a couple of books,
Her's resembles two nice mandolins".
But not to let chance pass away
He afterwards went on to say
"Doesn't matter, my dear,
She is there and you're here -
I don't want her, and you're here to stay".
"That's unlikely" she said, feeling blue
"Even if your kind comments are true,
After all that you've said
I'll be sharing my bed
With a cuddly teddy, not you".
