Hat tip Stormin's Morning Java

Meet Helen Jones-Kelly, director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, who has confirmed that she OK’d the check on Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher following the Oct. 15 presidential debate.

This makes my butt hurt on two fronts: 1. What made this woman think it was at all appropriate to delve into Joe the Plumbers' private information because he happened to get himself on tv with her preferred candidate (she is a max Obama donor)? It goes without saying that if Joe had been an Obama supporter, she would not have done this. 2. Her actions only give fuel to a paranoid "fear of a black planet" undertone in the campaign and supports the most irrational and ugly accusations of a black fascist state to come should Obama win the presidency. Her actions help poison the post election atmosphere as badly as any nutjobs on the right.
