29-year-old Edward Snowden is the ex-CIA and ex-defense contractor who blew the whistle on the NSA . . . and how they've been secretly spying on all of our horribly boring lives for years. Edward pretty much gave up everything to tell the truth. He's hiding out in Hong Kong now, hoping the U.S. government can't extradite him. He gave up his six-figure salary, his hope of seeing his family again . . . and his girlfriend of four years.
We're going to focus on his girlfriend today . . . because it was a HELL of a sacrifice. She's 28-year-old Lindsay Mills . . . and she's a PROFESSIONAL POLE DANCER. We don't THINK that means stripper, but we're not positive. She says she never even got to say goodbye to Edward because he didn't tell anyone his plan before he flew to Hong Kong to expose the NSA.
While they aren't officially broken up, it SEEMS like their relationship has to end. Edward may have to spend the rest of his life hiding in a country that gives him asylum, and that could keep him from having contact with her.
