Helen Jones-Kelley, pictured above, supports Senator Obama for President.

She has given the maximum contribution legally allowed to the Obama campaign.  She is also the director of the State of Ohio’s Job and  Family Services Division.  After Joe the Plumber was mentioned in the third Presidential debate she had her department’s computers run checks on Joe Wurzelbacher to discover if he owed back due child support, taxes or received welfare payments.

A Toledo police department clerk has been charged with conducting an illegal search of a state database to try to uncover information on Joe Wurzelbacher.

It is perhaps superfluous of me to state that it is contemptible for a public official or employee to misuse their position of public trust to spy on a private individual for political ends.  Such a conclusion should be self-evident.   Is this what private individuals may expect if they have the audacity to ask inconvenient questions of Senator Obama if he is elected President?

Update: The plot thickens.

  1. Clumsy folks in Ohio. Like this somewhat brutal bureaucrat. Should the Jet Jockey pull one out next week, he may well list three people as principal reasons- Joe. Sarah. Trig. Any or all of them trigger a Freakout Factor among the disciples of the Dollar Store Messiah. As for the above bureaucrat, may she bump down to a job in a dollar store. The late shift. The busiest cash register.

  2. Speaking as a former late-shift cashier (usually on weekends, when the tokers got the munchies and the drunks wanted a smoke), I say that the dollar store is too good for her. Bathroom cleaner for a chain of 24-hour party store/gas stations – that’s the job for her.
