Joe the Plumber and the FLDS

They're connected. We can count on Texas, Utah, Colorado and Arizona all behaving in the same way we see outlined here;

The Columbus Dispatch - "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.

If state employees run checks on every person listed in newspaper stories as buying a business, 'it must take a lot of people a lot of time to run these checks,' he said. 'Where do you draw the line?'

The checks were run after the news media reported that Wurzelbacher was considering buying a plumbing business with more than $250,000 in annual income, Jones-Kelley wrote.

'Given our understanding that Mr. (Joe) Wurzelbacher had publicly indicated that he had the means to purchase a substantial business enterprise, ODJFS, consistent with past departmental practice, checked confidential databases ,' she wrote."

The article also indicates that checks on Joe were more extensive than originally discovered or admitted. To date I don't know of anyone who has asked what was going on with the FLDS through government held private records, but we know they engage in this sort of activity. The sort of monstrous all seeing eye of Sauron activity portrayed above shouldn't be shocking to us, it's just what people in government do. Government is constantly overpopulated with employees with nothing much to do. They use their free time to pursue political agendas both in and outside of their agencies and outside the government. Where did the presumption of INNOCENCE go? Shouldn't government RESTRICT itself (oxymoron) to checking up on someone WHEN then apply to do something, not BEFORE? And why does Joe have to "Apply" to be a plumber?

Do you SERIOUSLY want government run HEALTH CARE? All of your most intimate and private data, pawed through by people wondering if you should be running for office or considering this political position or that political position or speaking out on this subject or that? We know what HAPPENS when those bureacrats think we exhibit hypocrisy in this area, they leak it to their cronies and it becomes public. Any WONDER why the FLDS wanted to live "off the grid?" Do you see what happens when the government can't get it's camera in you bathroom? They INVADE. Sauron must see EVERYTHING.

Jones-Kelley justifies her preemptive strike;

"Not surprisingly, when a person behind in child support payments or receiving public assistance is receiving significant media attention which suggests that the person appears to have available financial resources, the Department risks justifiable criticism if it fails to take note and respond..."

This is going to LOOK for a crime, before evidence of a crime has been found. The "Department" being seen as jealous of it's public image and needing to protect that image as all knowing, all powerful and preventing crime.

"Republican legislators have challenged Jones-Kelley's reason for checking on Wurzelbacher as 'frightening' and flimsy.

Jones-Kelly also has denied any connections between the computer checks on Wurzelbacher and her support for Obama. She donated the maximum $2,500 this year to the Obama campaign.

Ohio Inspector General Thomas P. Charles is investigating whether the child-support check on Wurzelbacher was legal."

Texas is still "investigating" Rozita Swinton. They move with cat like quickness on Joe though, and did so in the case of the FLDS. If they don't like the result of the investigation, they move with glacial speed.

I would like to see an investigation into how the CPS evidence on Teresa Jeffs was leaked to the media *before* it was presented in court. Although Natalie Malonis dragged her feet in putting in a motion to seal the already presented evidence, it was most likely someone in CPS that leaked it. Where was the Republican outcry then?
