COLUMBUS — Ohio taxpayers are right in the middle of the civil rights lawsuit that Samuel Joseph — “Joe the Plumber” — Wurzelbacher has filed against three former state employees, charging that they illegally accessed his confidential information through state databases.

Person who used Government Computer to look up info on Joe The Plumber, Charged with Crime !

The Person who used a Government Computer to look up info on Joe The Plumber, Charged with a Crime. Will Oregon Police Officer Jeff Brown be charged also. Or will the Lucas County Prosecutor and or the State just let this go?

That would be wrong. A Crime is a Crime. Is it not?

The person that looked up info on Joe The Plumber did it one time. And now this person is being charged with a crime.

Officer Jeff Brown of the Oregon, Ohio Police Dept. used the system to look up info on a girl friend 11 times or more. And are not Police Officers to be held to a higher standard?

Marcy has time for movie premeirs but no time to meet us

Marcy has attended at least two movie premieres, but there has been zero town hall meetings with constituents. Well, there was one phone conference where she gave the selected people who she decided to call a few minutes to decide if they want to participate. Nevermind.

Anyways, she was in the Big Apple and the Motor City on the red carpet. She is almost as famous as Joe the Plumber now.

God told Joe not to run for office

Joe what if it was the devil portraying himself as god? :)

Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher — you know him best as Joe the Plumber from Ohio — said in October he was thinking about running for Congress, challenging veteran Rep. Marcy Kaptur, a Democrat who represents the Toledo area.

No more. Joe says his No. 1 adviser has nixed the idea, ThinkProgress reports, citing an interview he gave to WorldNetDaily.

Whaaaat? Plumber Joe leaving GOP?

How'd we miss this? No plug on Swampbubbles about 'ol Joe 'keepin' it fresh', no hourly update on the happenings of our local hero ? The straight-shootin', down-to-earth, regular-guy-face of the GOP?? No Palin/Plumber ticket in '12? LOL, wow, must be a hoax.

Real plumbers: Joe doesn't speak for us

The Plumbers Union is steaming over the news that Joe the Plumber has been enlisted by groups opposed to the Employee Free Choice Act to campaign at a number of Pennsylvania rallies against the measure.

A Plumbers Union official tells me that Joe is “selling out real plumbers.” (cont.)

Looks like our friend Joe is still keeping it "fresh".

Odds that Joe the Plumber will run

Joe the Plumber Pens Memoir

Northwest Ohio has two suspicious Joe the Plumber inquiries - yet mostly silence locally

In what is almost unbelievable, there were now two suspicious inquiries locally about accessing Joe the Plumber information, yet it seems like just crickets chirping with local media. It would be really interesting to request a public records request to check all suspicious background checks from Toledo Police and NW Ohio BMV bureaus and see what shows up. The Columbus Dispatch took the lead on this and has really set things in motion.

More Joe the Plumber! Yes!

I am having Joe the Plumber witdrawl, but the Tufts Daily got me back into the swing of things with a Joe the Plumber fix. He talks about the election, about Sarah Palin, about his comments on Fox, and his potential run against Marcy Kaptur.

Get your fix at:

Also on deck today, is a potential link between Elliot Spitzer, Ted Strickland and Joe the Plumber. Read what the Salem News has to say:

Jones-Kelly not only snooped on Joe the Plumber but now raised money using state computers for Obama

Helen Jones-Kelly is put on administrative leave. It appears there was more than snooping on citizens, now she was raising money using her state e-mail account. Interesting this is released Friday evening to minimize any political fallout. I guess when you make the governor eat his words, you better watch out. The only shame is she is still being paid.
