Shock: Helen Jones-Kelley Lied; Searched More For Dirt on Joe the Plumber Than She Originally Admitted

Remember -- according to Helen Jones-Kelley, anyone who appears in the public spotlight in Ohio is entitled to this same treatment.

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?"

...

Jones-Kelley wrote that the checks were "well-meaning," but misinterpreted amid the heated final weeks of a presidential election.

"Well-meaning."

"Misinterpreted."

Ohioans, make sure you don't say anything publicly about Obama. Or else Helen Jones-Kelley, Arch-Minister of Thought Compliance, will be forced to run a "well-meaning" dirt-dig on you.
