The Ohio Inspector General has finished his investigation into allegations that state officials plumbed private records in order to dig up some dirt on Joe the Plumber, simply because he dared to ask a legitimate question that happened to embarrass the Messiah. The conclusions reached by the Inspector don't seem very good for one Helen Jones-Kelley, one of the (soon-to-be-ex) employees who went fishing where they weren't supposed to:

"There was no legitimate business purpose for the head of Ohio's Department of Job and Family Services to order staff to look up the records"

Yeah, we'd pretty much already puzzled that one out.

This next part confused me, however:

"Investigators weren't able to determine whether the searches were politically motivated, the report said."

Especially when one hits this next bit of info, one paragraph later:

"The agency director, Helen Jones-Kelley, was placed on leave this month over separate allegations that a state computer or state e-mail account was used to assist in political fundraising for Democrat Barack Obama's campaign."

That would pretty much prove the "politically motivated" part, I would imagine.

2 + 2 = Bye bye Helen. Enjoy your upcoming job search and criminal prosecution, especially in light of the current economy. You'll find that the private sector is even more unforgiving of using their resources improperly and illegally.
