A records clerk in Ohio has been charged with gross misconduct after unlawfully using a state database to access information on the man famously known as "Joe the Plumber," according to several local press accounts.
Julie McConnell, a long-time records clerk with the Toledo police department investigative services bureau, reportedly used the database -- called the Law Enforcement Automated Data System or LEADS -- to access information on Joe Wurzelbacher.
Wurzelbacher, a 34-year-old Ohio man looking to buy a plumbing business, rose to political fame after questioning Barack Obama on his "spreading the wealth" remarks during an Oct. 12 rally in Holland, Ohio. He has since become a symbol for John McCain's campaign, which says Obama proposes to raise taxes on small businesses.
McConnell allegedly used the LEADS database to confirm Wurzelbacher's address at the request of a local television reporter, according to a report published in the Toledo Blade.

What's Julie's DU Name?At least once every human should have to run for his life, to teach him that milk does not come from supermarkets, that safety does not come from policemen, that news is not something that happens to other people. ~ Robert Heinlein
