Today we learned that at least three people, working in the State Department, breached the security of Barack Obama’s passport files. Apparently, the breach occurred in January, 2008, during the period leading up to the Super Tuesday primaries. Despite procedures that require immediate investigation and notification, Obama was only advised today!
According to a White House spokesperson, the reason for the breach was “not political,” but rather was out of “curiosity.” The only possible way to know the true motivation for the breach is to learn much more about the three individuals who accessed the records. Why do they say they did it? Who did they talk to about it before and after? Who do they associate with who might have helped peak their curiosity!
I think this is a good time to point out that we first learned about the Eliot Spitzer scandal on March 11, 2008.
It is now March 22, 2008, and a Google news search for Ashley Alexandra Dupre gets 3,543 hits, and counting! We’ve learned about her aspirations for a singing career, her heartbreaking family history, even her liaisons with Charlie Sheen!
Enough about Ashley! Go find out why these three guys (or gals) were so “curious” about Obama’s private records that they broke the law and eventually got fired, in order to access them!
I'll be checking back in eleven days!
