PAID VACATION FOR A BARRY CERBERUS
Posted by ginnypub on November 8, 2008
Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland placed the director of the Department of Job and Family Services on paid leave today for possibly using a state computer and e-mail account for political fund-raising. E-mails obtained today by The Dispatch show that Helen Jones-Kelley’s e-mail account was used to assist the presidential campaign of Democrat Barack Obama in raising money.
The state e-mails show Jones-Kelley provided the Obama campaign with the names of 17 potential Dayton-area contributors ahead of the candidate’s July 11 appearance there. On July 8, the director offered to write a $2,500 check to the campaign to join Obama at his appearance, volunteered to contact would-be contributors and offered to help arrange an event for Michelle Obama, the candidate’s wife.
The inspector general already was investigating if job and family services computers were used illegally to obtain confidential information on “Joe the Plumber,” a Toledo-area man popularized by Republican John McCain.
The question now is, “What will Barry’s other cerberuses do to Ludlow and Strickland?” Will they play the race card, publically smear them or just attack them enmasse, tear their shirts open, rip out their hearts and eat them in front of the master? Stay tuned…..
