Government Data Accessed in Campaign to Smear Joe the Plumber

Here’s another foretaste of life in Obama Nation. Joe the Plumber challenged The One’s Marxist economic plans and came to symbolize the normal hard-working Americans who would be crushed so that Obama can “spread the wealth around.” As punishment, the Obamedia has crawled over Joe Wurzelbacher’s life like a plague of cockroaches, waggling its antennae for any information that might discredit him or besmirch his character. Obama hasn’t even been elected, but already help appears to be coming from government sources:

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.

Observes Paul Lindsay of the McCain campaign:

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.

Given that lawyers are a core constituency of the Democrat Party, character assassination tactics aren’t terribly surprising. But Obama’s “by any means necessary” ideological background makes the potential for government abuse alarming. Already we’ve seen official truth squads intimidating citizens into keeping their mouths shut if they have nothing adulatory to say about the Moonbat Messiah, and bureauweenies have attempted to drive Wurzelbacher out of business. Shrillary’s infamous misuse of FBI files will look like a minor indiscretion compared to what we could expect from an Obama regime.

Joe the Plumber must be taught a lesson for objecting to socialism.
