If you were governor, would you fire the officials responsible for background checks done on Joe the Plumber?
Certainly, everyone involved in this shameful, disgraceful, despicable act should be fired, fined and jailed. This is a very serious breach of individual rights. Each of us deserves the right to privacy. This was primarily a political move to destroy, to assassinate the character of a person who dared to question or put in a negative light on someone who has been almost deified by the mainstream media. This smells of a Gestapo or KGB tactic. Destroy all the enemies of the party, in this case the Democrat Party. Sarah Palin, like Joe the Plumber, has also been a target of the mainstream media and biased targeted investigation. All the while the serious questions about Barack Hussein Obama's qualifications to hold office (proof of his American birth), his gross lack of experience, his questionable associations and past dealings, and radical anti-American political philosophy and positions on issues such as his support for infanticide have been completely ignored by the so-called journalists.
As a result of all the positive and negative publicity which Joe the Plumber has received since he asked “the Question” has resulted in a degree of fame. Joe has, in fact, created a website SecureOurDream dot com. There are many Joes in America.
Unfortunately Governor Ted Strickland will not fire Helen Jones Kelley, the Director of Ohio Job and Family Services which ran unnecessary and unlawful searches on Joe the Plumber, because it would not be politically correct. Anymore, it is more important to be politically correct than it is to do the correct thing.
