Come on Joe, sue the pants off those arrogant jerks!

Imagine the private details of your life splashed all over the world just because you had the audacity to ask The One a difficult question which it then stumbled over!

Come on Joe! Sue the pants off those who think they are above the law!

Records searches anger Joe the Plumber
The Toledo-area man, who was elevated to fame after he challenged Democrat Barack Obama over his tax policies during a street-side chat, formally endorsed McCain at the Flag Lady's Flag Store in the Beechwold neighborhood.

Authorities in Toledo and Cleveland confirmed today that workers accessed Wurzelbacher's driving record and vehicle information through state computer systems in checks uncovered by The Dispatch.

The Toledo Police Department announced that a records clerk improperly pulled Wurzelbacher's information on behalf of a reporter for a Toledo television station the day after the Oct. 15 presidential debate.

The clerk has been charged with gross misconduct and faces a disciplinary hearing, said Chief Michael Navarre. He declined to identify the TV station but said the reporter confirmed asking for a check on Wurzelbacher's address.

The Cuyahoga County Child Support Enforcement Agency also said an employee's computer was used to improperly access Bureau of Motor Vehicles records on Wurzelbacher. The employee denies involvement.

Another access of Wurzelbacher's information, by an outside contractor with access to an attorney general's office test account, is being investigated by the State Highway Patrol.

Inspector General Thomas P. Charles also is investigating why the director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services approved a check on Wurzelbacher through the state's child-support computer system.

Director Helen Jones-Kelley said that after a "team meeting," she OK'd the check because the department often runs inquiries to check for unpaid child support on people thrust into "the public spotlight."

Wurzelbacher said he has custody of his 13-year-old son and neither pays nor receives child support, leaving him puzzled about why he would be checked.

Jones-Kelley said there were no political motivations behind the check. The Democratic appointee has contributed the maximum $2,300 to the Obama campaign this year, according to Federal Election Commission records.

Ohio Senate President Bill M. Harris, R-Ashland, wrote Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland that he was disturbed by Jones-Kelley's actions and statements. He asked for records and an explanation.

"Ohioans are once again questioning the stewardship of their information," Harris wrote today. He also said he did not share Strickland's confidence that there were no political overtones to the Wurzelbacher check.

State Rep. William G. Batchelder, R-Medina, called for the director to be placed on leave until the investigation is complete.
Strickland spokesman Keith Dailey attributed the Republicans' actions to "baseless political attacks" amid a campaign in which McCain trails.

Come on Joe! Get 'em! They deserve to be very concerned about their future - their current jobs and their ability to get others (since they should be fired!). They deserve to be afraid of legal punishment! They don't deserve to be forgiven without first experiencing the consequences of their actions, learning the lesson of how wrong their actions were, and soliciting your forgiveness on their own.

Dear Friend of Sarah Palin: Please keep your blog and online network of allies intact through and BEYOND the election. No matter who wins the election, many (many) Sarah for President in 2012 web sites and blogs will start appearing on Nov. 5, including a couple I will manage. Your effort -- and that of Team Sarah generally -- has been superb, but it's essential that we continue to work together. First, however, let's win this election!

Please send me a short e-mail at: so we can stay in touch.
