Tell you what, I'd sure hate to be Helen Jones-Kelley right now. That's because the former Ohio state official is being sued, along with two other now-fired government workers, by the one and only Rush Limbaugh.
Sorry, I mean Joe the Plumber…
Toledo-area plumber and 2008 presidential campaign fixture Samuel Wurzelbacher filed a federal lawsuit today that charges Ohio government officials with violating his constitutional rights by searching confidential government databases for information about him.
No sir, you don't mess with a man's constitutional rights like that, especially not a man who's a patriot like Samuel the Wurzelbacher. Good thing Joe's hired Judicial Watch, a "public interest group that investigates government corruption," to get him press coverage represent him in this most important matter.
"No American should be investigated for simply asking a question of a public official," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. "It is unconscionable that high-ranking state officials pried into confidential government files in retaliation for Joe's exercise of his First Amendment rights."
And we all know how strongly Joe feels about the First Amendment.
