On the heels of last month's felony conviction of David C. Kernell - the son of a prominent Tennessee democrat politician - for the 2008 hacking of Sarah Palin's private email account, come indictments against 9 people for invading the privacy of the President of the United States.
If these 9 didn't know how to spell "dumb 4ss" before this, they do now.
From the AP:
"DES MOINES, Iowa — Nine people were indicted Wednesday on federal charges of accessing President Barack Obama's student loan records while they were employed for a Department of Education contractor in Iowa.
The U.S. attorney's office said a grand jury returned the indictments in U.S. District Court in Davenport.
All nine are charged with exceeding authorized computer access. They are accused of gaining access to a computer at a Coralville office where they worked between July 2007 and March 2009, and accessing Obama's student loan records while he was either a candidate for president, president-elect or president."
If convicted, each could face up to one year in prison and a fine of up to $100,000.
This is not the first time for unauthorized access of Obama's private information. In 2008, two state department contract employees were fired and a third disciplined for improperly accessing the passport files of democratic Senators Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton, and Republican John McCain.
Also in 2008, Helen Jones-Kelly, director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services - and maximum Obama campaign contributor - illegally conducted 18 searches into the private records of Joe "The Plumber" Wurzelbacher, after Joe's famous on-camera 'you want to spread the wealth' exchange with candidate Barack Obama.
After a 30-day unpaid suspension, Jones-Kelly resigned in disgrace from her job as director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
I guess her services as a gub'mint snitch weren't appreciated.
Let this be a lesson to you, boys n girls; cats n kittens; democrats and republicans - stay out of other people's private biddnessss!
Jeeez. If only we could get this bzzy body administration to obey.
