It does not surprise me to read about these state officials using their state computers and databases to crusade against out-spoken conservative individuals. I hope that the people of Ohio and others states understand that politicians and their bureaucratic flunkies believe it is their right to invade your privacy because they believe that they are doing the right thing for the collective. Who needs to have the KGB when you have a legion of leftist bureaucrats with access to government databases? I hope those of you that voted liberal this last election are seeing what liberalism is doing to your individual rights. Reading the linked story above you will see that the number one reason that these state officials resigned or where fired is due to their being a Republican State Legislature with these officials working for the Obama campaign and other liberals. I do not believe that the Republicans would have pressed this if they where digging for dirt to help McCain but since these where Dems theu became prime targets.
