Big Bro Spied on Plumber Joe

Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, Joe the Plumber, had his fifteen minutes of fame and he expected to return to his life of quiet desperation. As his minutes rolled over, his life of quiet desperation is being interspersed with moments of sheer terror. Someone or several someones in Ohio were spying on America's favorite plumber within 48 hours of the final Presidential debate by accessing personal Joe data through the government computer system.

From Randy Ludlow at the Columbus Dispatch --

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 [Dem], 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.

Paul Lindsay, Ohio spokesman for the McCain campaign, attempted to portray the inquiries as 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," he said.
An inability to connect the dots and a failure of imagination is what is truly outrageous. Anyone who has been seriously watching the crap the Obama campaign has been shoveling knows all too well what is behind the Joe the Plumber smears and character assassination attempts.

The Democrat Party and other Liberals view this Presidential campaign cycle not as another election, but as another revolution. No matter what is said to the contrary, or offered up as proof, there is no way to convince the opposition that George Bush did not lie about Iraq, but acted with the best intel available, nor did the President act unilaterally in the invasion of Iraq, but, in fact, had a larger coalition of forces than did his father in the Gulf War. Neither did George Bush steal the election from Al Gore who lost fair and square after Al Gore brought the lawsuit that led to the decision in the Supreme Court as a consortium of newspapers led by the New York Times determined after they counted all of the ballots with and without hanging chads. The vast majority of the Patriot Act existed even before Bill Clinton was President and much was added by him. Under George Bush the extant and dispersed laws were brought together under one title.

No matter. They was robbed and vengence is theirs.

The opposition believes as a matter of absolute truth that this election is a war that must be fought and won by any means necessary. Lying, spying, intimidation, vandalism, physical assault, theft are all legitimate tactics and stratagems. In revolutions, laws are ignored and broken because they are the laws that allowed the evil in. They firmly believe that after the Obama Revolution has cleansed the country, all liberties will be restored and everyone will return to their law biding ways.

They just don't get it. After their little revolution, the ruling elite will turn those same tactics on the very people who put them in the offices of power. Joe the Plumber is only the beginning.

The life of Indigo Red is full of adventure. Tune in next time for the Further Adventures of Indigo Red.

The operative paragraph:

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

And just WHO do you suppose works in those offices?

When Obama's passport file was unlawfully viewed at the State Dept. it was a MAJOR story and people were fired. This story will be forgotten in a few days and no one will bother to check whether the Ohio Democrat Party or the Obama campaign had anything to do with it.

But as your post suggests, a disturbing pattern is emerging whereby the civil liberties of Americans are less important to our liberal friends than extending those same rights to the terrorists at Gitmo.
