Ohio Background Checks On Joe the Plumber By Big Obama Lib More Extensive Than First Acknowledged
The Obama supporter and Ohio official’s background checks on Joe the Plumber were more extensive than previously reported.
Helen Jones-Kelley, director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, was busy at work digging up dirt on Joe the Plumber.
The Ohio official admitted into prying into Joe the Plumber’s background after he confronted Barack Obama on his plans to spread the wealth.
The Columbus Dispatch reported:
A state agency has revealed that its checks of computer systems for potential information on “Joe the Plumber” were more extensive than it first acknowledged.
Helen Jones-Kelley, director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, disclosed today that computer inquiries on Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher were not restricted to a child-support system.
The agency also checked Wurzelbacher in its computer systems to determine whether he was receiving welfare assistance or owed unemployment compensation taxes, she wrote.
Jones-Kelley made the revelations in a letter to Ohio Senate President Bill M. Harris, R-Ashland, who demanded answers on why state officials checked out Wurzelbacher.
Harris called the multiple records checks “questionable” and said he awaits more answers. “It’s kind of like Big Brother is looking in your pocket,” he said.
