    9 indicted on charges of accessing Obama records

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- 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.
    I am wondering whether or not these guys were birthers or such, attempting to dig up dirt. At any rate, they are all looking at up to a year in prison for what they did. I hope they learn a lesson here.

    Meanwhile, I am kind of happy that Obama was on the receiving end of being spied on. He promised to end government spying on American citizens, but he didn't. Karma's a bitch, ain't it?

    Article is here.

    They were definitely trying to find out if Barry went to school on foreign student loans.... and yes, karma is a bitch, but what can he expect when he hides all of his records?

    (Karma is not some mysterious force.... it's what happens when you piss a bunch of people off)

    And I guess he didn't, otherwise you would be trumpeting it from the rooftops. Glad we could put another rumor to rest, it's just a shame that these nine brave patriots had to make the ultimate sacrifice.

    Maybe, maybe not..... I didn't see anything about them actually getting into the records, did you?

    I guess that is like all of the law suites that have been lost.

    You know what? You're right.

    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.
    Each of eight indictments posted by Wednesday night were brief, saying the charged individual "intentionally exceeded authorized access to a computer and thereby obtained information from a department and agency of the United States" and "intentionally accessed student loan records" of Obama without authorization.
    It's exactly like the lawsuit situation, in that you've once again failed to read beyond the headline, causing you to miss critical information that would highlight the flaws in your conspiracy theories.

    What these men did was illegal and they deserve jail time just like the guy who hacked Palin's email deserves jail time. Spying is illegal, and Obama is entitled to his own privacy as are the rest of us.

    Yes it did, read again.

    And logically, if they had found the damning evidence, it would have been published.


    Point 2 -- do these jamokes really think the GOP didn't have much more competent people looking into everything Obama back in 2007-2008??

    That's what gets me about the birthers, they think they're smarter than Hilary and the GOPs political operatives.

    News flash -- No you're not.

    Did the government employees that accessed information about Joe The Plumber for political gain go to jail too?

    There is a difference.

    1) College records are private.

    2) Plumbing licenses are public record. When someone claims to be a plumber, and he isn't, it is easy to find out by looking in PUBLIC RECORDS.

    Duh!

    No not Duh, government employees pulled up his records of his marriage and his tax records, and I am sure more but I don't remember tham all, to dig up something.

    I don't see a difference other than one is a private citizen and the other is a public figure.
