Ohio Inspector General Thomas Charles is reportedly investigating whether the use of state computers to conduct the child support check on Wurzelbacher was legal. Ken Blackwell, a McCain supporter and former secretary of state in the Buckeye State, says the snooping into Joe the Plumber's personal information can be summed up in one word -- shameful. "If you don't want to use 'shameful,' say 'scary' because I think it's typical of a government gone crazy," says the conservative Republican. "Here we are talking about an individual [Wurzelbacher] who is giving voice to his position in the public square -- and we now see that the heavy arm of government has become intrusive in the public square in an effort to suppress that voice or to discredit [the speaker] 'Joe the Plumber.'" Blackwell says it is no surprise to him that supporters of Barack Obama, a leading advocate of a bigger government, would be using the instruments of government to "harass a person for speaking his mind." He argues that those in the government should not use their influence or power to discourage people from exercising their right to free speech.
