I’M SHOCKED, SHOCKED: Inspector general says Joe the Plumber’s files searched improperly. “A state agency director authorized improper checks of state computer systems for confidential information on ‘Joe the Plumber,’ according to a report released this afternoon by Ohio’s inspector general. Nearly four hours after the release of the report, Gov. Ted Strickland announced he had placed Helen Jones-Kelley, the suspended director of the Department of Job and Family Services, on unpaid leave for one month. Republican leaders used the report’s findings to call on Strickland to fire Jones-Kelley for abusing her authority to snoop into the background of Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher.”
