"well meaning" and "misinterpreted" is how maxed out Obama supporter and director of Ohio's Department of Job and Family Services describes the raid made by the bureaucrats in her department on the private and confidential personal records of Mr. Joe Wurzelbacher. Mr. Wurzelbacher, if you recall, had the temerity to exercise his right to free speech. Unfortunately for him he exercised it to point out the fine new set of class warfare clothing The One was sporting.
A state agency has revealed that its checks of computer systems for potential information on "Joe the Plumber" were more extensive than it first acknowledged.
Helen Jones-Kelley, director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, disclosed today that computer inquiries on Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher were not restricted to a child-support system.
The agency also checked Wurzelbacher in its computer systems to determine whether he was receiving welfare assistance or owed unemployment compensation taxes, she wrote.
Now I know this is a racist position because Jones-Kelley is black and she is an Obama supporter and as FSP tells us -- so it must be right -- if you criticize a black person, especially an Obama supporter, you are de facto racist. So I'll own up to it right now and save Isaac Smith from wetting himself again. But the actions of this agency under and at the direction of a major Obama contributor are illegal and unless there is evidence that they run routine checks on every private citizen in Ohio who are mentioned in the newspapers her excuse is just laughable.
As a one-off, this particular data point is not significant. But neither, necessarily, is any particular point in a racketeering indictment. When taken together with the other similar actions of the Obama campaign it paints a sordid picture of a man and a campaign who simply don't understand America and its political system, but they do understand wielding state power for the most petty of reasons.
