    The Revenge of Joe the Plumber

    Another Ohio official bites the dust over the illegal data searching of Joe the Plumber files.

    "CINCINNATI – An Ohio agency director resigned Wednesday in the wake of a finding that she improperly used state computers to access personal information on the man who became known as "Joe the Plumber" during the presidential campaign.
    Two other officials who were suspended from their positions for their role in the computer search will not be returning to their jobs, an agency spokeswoman said.
    Department of Job and Family Services Director Helen Jones-Kelley said in a statement accompanying her resignation that she won't allow her reputation to be disparaged and that she is concerned for her family's safety."

    Sometimes when things don't look right its give off a rancid aroma of dead fish on a hot summers day.

    There is alot more to the "story" then what was released by the MSM.

    In review Helen Jones Kelly, Fred Williams and Deputy Director Doug Thompson who ran the Ohio Department of Job & Family Services took it upon themselves to look up confidential info on Joe.

    Doug Thompson behind closed doors directed Vanessa Niekamp a unclassified
    employee under duress to find that info on Joe so it could be released to the press. Jones Kelly then used that info on her Blackberry to release the info to the press.

    Vannessa then used her vacation day to leave early and went to the office of inspector general to report what was going on.

    Under US Code Title 18,1622 its called "subbornation of perjury.


    Who ever procures another to commit any perjury is guilty of subornation of
    perjury and shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 5 years or both.

    Yeah, but with a generous donation to HVAC-TALK, he can become "Pro status".

    Actually, I don't think H-Talk accepts donations of any kind.


    Maybe the membership committee though!
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    He might fit the definition of plumber in say, Alabama where all you need is an understanding of how an outhouse operates. The guy is a joke. And i'm sorry, but if you're going to be used as a mascot for a bad presidential campaign, you have to expect people are going to dig up everything they can about you. I'm glad it came out that he doesn't pay his taxes and isn't a plumber. And here in Wisconsin, that kind of stuff can be found easily on the internet. Get with it Ohio.

    Heck he can go to Missouri throw down a couple hundred bucks at city hall and be called a hvac pro. Thats all he needs to be a pro here.

    But Ohio "my birth state" don't play those silly azz games

    Is continuously going back to Joe-Not-A-Plumber or selecting Sarah-Not-An-Intellect-Palin the reason McCain lost?

    Both made great comedic fodder for late night TV.
