The tentacles of the Obama campaign and Joe the.............

Plumber's right to privacy being invaded.With the state attorney general being an Obama supporter,it's not hard to guess.

It's obvious from this article that those tentacles reach into Ohio state government but how far? Three separate accounts accessed Joe's private info on government computers shortly after the last debate,one of them was the office of the attorney general.

"Public records requested by The Dispatch disclose that information on Wurzelbacher's driver's license or his sport-utility vehicle was pulled from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles database three times shortly after the debate.

Information on Wurzelbacher was accessed by accounts assigned to the office of Ohio Attorney General Nancy H. Rogers, the Cuyahoga County Child Support Enforcement Agency and the Toledo Police Department.

It has not been determined who checked on Wurzelbacher, or why. Direct access to driver's license and vehicle registration information from BMV computers is restricted to legitimate law enforcement and government business."

Of course they did,the mission was to discredit Joe with any dirt they could and take fuel away from McCain.

McCain is making more political hay with JTP than Obama is, and IF I was running a political campaign I would want to know something about the people I am going to hold up as an example.

McCain also has a reason to investigate JTP.

In reply to: OK

Ya know? WHICH campaign is already up to its elbows in fraudulent voter registration?

Why would the McCain campaign illegally access state computers? I am sure they had no need to dig up dirt on JTP...Dirt that was then used by the Obamatrons! How'd THAT happen? Another one of those amazing coincidences?


Obama sure better win, or we may be treated to that perp walk yet!

Here's Another One. Charged With Gross Misconduct, Unlawful
by James Denison / October 29, 2008 5:28 AM PDT

...Use. Reporter had someone in a police station access information from the Highway Patrol database.
A records clerk in Ohio has been charged with gross misconduct after unlawfully using a state database to access information on the man famously known as "Joe the Plumber," according to several local press accounts.
Julie McConnell, a long-time records clerk with the Toledo police department investigative services bureau, reportedly used the database -- called the Law Enforcement Automated Data System or LEADS -- to access information on Joe Wurzelbacher.
McConnell allegedly used the LEADS database to confirm Wurzelbacher's address at the request of a local television reporter, according to a report published in the Toledo Blade.

One link found, that tentacle hasn't been Obama related
by Willy / October 29, 2008 1:41 PM PDT

It seems one Toledo police civilian worker was asked by a local TV person/personnel to pull the info, mainly to get the correct address. Regardless, it wasn't proper to do so and will disciplined probably next week as this was outside of law enforcement procedure. -----Willy Happy
