Joe The Plumber Snoop Is Obama Supporter
The next thing you know, we knew more about Joe The Plumber in two days than we know about Obama in two years.
Now we find out that government computers in Ohio may have been used to investigate Joe. CNET:
Government computers in Ohio may been used to illegally access personal information about Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, otherwise known as "Joe the Plumber," according to the Columbus Dispatch.
During their October 15 debate, presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain referred to "Joe the Plumber" constantly. In the days following the debate, information on Wurzelbacher's driver's license or his sport utility vehicle was retrieved from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles database three times, the Dispatch reported.
With access to such information limited to legitimate law enforcement and government business, state and local officials are now investigating whether the information was obtained illegally. The information was retrieved using accounts assigned to the Ohio attorney general's office, a county child support enforcement agency, and the Toledo Police Department, according to the report.
An Ohio spokesman for the McCain campaign told the Dispatch that the information breach may have been politically motivated.
"It's outrageous to see how quickly Barack Obama's allies would abuse government power in an attempt to smear a private citizen who dared to ask a legitimate question," Paul Lindsay told the Dispatch.
Ohio’s inspector general is investigating why a state agency director approved checking the state child-support computer system for information on “Joe the Plumber.”
Helen Jones-Kelly, director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, confirmed today that she OK’d the check on Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher following the Oct. 15 presidential debate.
She said there were no political reasons for the check on the sudden presidential campaign fixture though the Support Enforcement Tracking System.
Amid questions from the media and others about “Joe the Plumber,” Jones-Kelley said she approved a check to determine if he was current on any ordered child-support payments.
Such information was not and cannot be publicly shared, she said. It is unclear if Wurzelbacher is involved in a child-support case. Reports state that he lives alone with a 13-year-old son.
“Our practice is when someone is thrust quickly into the public spotlight, we often take a look” at them, Jones-Kelley said [WTF IS THIS, THEY JUST SNOOP INTO ANY PRIVATE CITIZEN ON A WHIM? - DRAKE], citing a case where a lottery winner was found to owe past-due child support. “Our practice is to basically look at what is coming our way.”
Ah. So they just do that on anyone who gets famous. Is she serious? Joe should file a lawsuit against her and the department for violating his civil rights and privacy. Maybe the ACLU of Ohio, or even the national office, would care to help? Interesting how it also seems to be Democrats who use government offices to check people out for the hell of it, eh?
Did I forget to mention that Jones-Kelly is a maxed out Obama donor? Ace has the scoop on that. Nothing political in the investigation, though. Are Democrats taught to lie like that, or is it just natural?
Where are these same Libs and Cultists now? Are they weighing in with the same degree of vitriol about the privacy breach, using government computers, of Joe The Plumber? I don't have to provide you the answer to this question. You know the answer.
A taste of uber-Fascism and an Orwellian government, all provided by, and on behalf of, Barack Hussein Obama, Junior and his brainwashed Cult Followers. This should scare the living hell out of everyone!
Jones-Kelley says, "we often take a look" into peoples private files.
WTF? Where is the Lib Outrage? Oh, they only get outraged when the Bush Admin taps into a phone call of an American talking WITH A TERRORIST OR TERRORIST-WANNABE IN SYRIA OR IRAN.
