Most of the 'clearance denied' decisions are for financial reasons, with the runner-up being drug use. There are a few odd ones in there. One is quite the twisted tale involving some guy whose girlfriend/wife got involved in some sort of heavy lifestyle BSDM thing, put up a website, but then wanted out, and was being (reading between the lines a little) extorted for it. It's very WTFy, but interesting because it's one of the few times I've heard of someone being declined a clearance because of something their spouse was up to, that wasn't either foreign involvement or outright criminality.
