    Duh!

    I don't see a difference other than one is a private citizen and the other is a public figure.
    There is no difference as far as who the individuals are. However, school records are private records while a plumbing license is part of the public domain. So, in that sense if all the culpretes did was accessed Joe the Plumber's plumbing license well...no real harm done. But since they went beyond that and accessed his private records as the Ohio IG has reported, then they deserve whatever punishment the law allows same as those who attempt to access the President's college records.

    To all those supporting this sort of activity:

    Post your social security number and bank account number. The People demand to know.

    This thread is about 9 people being indicted for accessing Obama records. Please use one of the hundreds of other "Bash Obama" threads for this stuff.

    Article is here.
    Well, when all of a persons public records are sealed away from some obscure reason, while there are all sorts of questions regarding Obama's past... they may not have been seeking to 'dig up dirt' as much as trying to determine 'what's he got that needs to be so well hidden'.

    But, as far as spying goes.... it's only legal to spy on the people... watching the watchers should be a capital offence, Big brother demands it.

    Damn dude... I feel bad for you, seeing conspiracies everywhere even where none exists...

    I bet you couldn't even point out coherently where the 'conspiracy' is in this?

    And why is accessing his records grounds for a year in jail?
    Because as long as he's president he must be treated like a god. You wouldn't investigate your god now would you??

    I find it hard to believe the County prosecutor would be as zealous if someone hacked into my college records.
    That's a racist conspiracy theory.

    Less debate, more posting of sensitive personal information. That's what you conservatives support, right?

    Why are his college records personal, or sensitive?

    Well, it depends: if the government worker had authorization, then it was unethical, but not illegal.

    It appears that the DoE contractors exceeded their authorization restrictions to obtain the information and they were working for a Federal Department to obtain private records available only to those with legitimate access rights.

    This action (apparently) is against the law.

    I don't see the two as being identical. Similar, but not identical.

    And, just so you know...I would have fired the employee in Ohio - not just suspended.
