Joe the Plumber privacy violated by government officials? (an Obama preview)

Remember the glory days of 2002 when you saw things like "IRS Official to Judicial Watch: Clinton Enemies Were Audited" (link)?

Well, Barack Obama's surrogates look like they're intent on bringing those glory days back:
"State and local officials are investigating if state and law-enforcement computer systems were illegally accessed when they were tapped for personal information about "Joe the Plumber." [i.e., Joe Wurzelbacher].

...Public records requested by The Dispatch disclose that information on Wurzelbacher's driver's license or his sport-utility vehicle was pulled from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles database three times shortly after the debate.

Information on Wurzelbacher was accessed by accounts assigned to the office of Ohio Attorney General Nancy H. Rogers, the Cuyahoga County Child Support Enforcement Agency and the Toledo Police Department.

It has not been determined who checked on Wurzelbacher, or why. Direct access to driver's license and vehicle registration information from BMV computers is restricted to legitimate law enforcement and government business...
The BHO campaign denies everything. Everything!
