Joe the Plumber sues muppet mass murderer, Jones-Kelley

Joe the plumber is suing Muppet mass murderer, Helen Jones-Kelley.

Wurzelbacher alleges his constitutional rights were violated when the three then-state officials in the Democratic Strickland administration, including Department of Job and Family Services Director Helen Jones-Kelley, illegally accessed private information about him in state databases after Wurzelbacher became a prominent Obama foe embraced by McCain.

In addition to Jones-Kelley, the lawsuit names as defendants former department officials Fred Williams and Doug Thompson.

The lawsuit was filed by the legal watchdog group Judicial Watch on behalf of Wurzelbacher[...]Jones-Kelley resigned last year near the end of a month-long, unpaid suspension for mining state computers for confidential information on "Joe the Plumber." The Strickland administration fired Doug Thompson, deputy director of child support. Fred Williams, assistant agency director, resigned effective Jan. 31.

A report by Inspector General Thomas P. Charles found Jones-Kelley approved the database checks on Wurzelbacher for no legitimate government purpose. The checks came the day after McCain repeatedly mentioned Wurzelbacher by his nickname in a televised debate with Obama on Oct. 15.

Charles found that Williams and Thompson participated in Jones-Kelley's authorization of the checks and that Thompson later directed an employee to lie about the checks. That staff member reported the incident to Charles.

The agency's actions drew outrage from across the country after The Dispatch broke the story in October. The paper also reported that Jones-Kelley had used her state computer and e-mail to assist the Obama campaign, providing names of potential Dayton-area contributors and helping to arrange an event for Obama's wife, Michelle.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said "no American should be investigated for simply asking a question of a public official."

Fitton added that he believes this case is part of a pattern of Obama supporters targeting Obama opponents, and said what happened to Wurzelbacher will have a "chilling effect" on other Americans.

Good, clean-cut people treating Muppets with the proper respect due to them:

Apparently, John Kerry should be afraid of Jones-Kelley, since he bears a striking resemblence to Guy Smiley:
