Government Computers Used to Research Joe the Plumber

This is really disturbing: in the days following the last Presidential debate, three different Ohio government agencies pulled plumber Joe Wurzelbacher's DMV info.

His records were pulled by the Ohio Attorney General's Office, the Toledo Police Department, and the Cuyahoga County Child Support Enforcement Agency.

It doesn't seem possible that all of these agencies had legitimate reasons to simultaneously be researching Joe after his name appeared in the news. Investigations are underway.

Who did the snooping, and who received the information?

Remember that funny-but-true line the other day about Obama revealing his Socialism and then there being a demand to see the questioning citizen's papers, referring to the endless media scrutiny of the "upstart" plumber? It was more true than we knew at the time.

Is this what awaits American citizens who dare to question liberal politicians in the future?

Joe says he'll be "scared for America" if Obama wins.

Me too.

Saturday Update: Ed Morrissey: "Thirty-five years ago, a group of Plumbers did the same kind of thing in a presidential election, and it changed American politics forever. This smells of the same kind of Nixonian tactics."

Check out the Fred Thompson video we just posted on The Shelf.
Still wish he was our nominee with Sarah as VP- talk about a rockin' ticket.
