    Obama’s Privacy Violated, Again, By Individuals Abusing Access Powers

    Illinois employees are facing suspension for improperly accessing President-Elect Barack Obama’s driving records, news organizations report. According to the State Journal-Register:

    The employees, who work in secretary of state offices throughout the state, include workers at licensing facilities and in the departments of Vehicle Services and Drivers Services, spokeswoman Penelope Campbell said.

    All of them looked up Obama’s driving record after he was elected president Nov. 4, although none of them was authorized to do so, she said.

    This is not the first time Obama has had problems with individuals invading his privacy. A few weeks ago, Verizon admitted Obama’s personal cell phone records were wrongly accessed by the telecom company’s employees. In March, the State Department announced that three contract employees improperly accessed the confidential passport files of Senators Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and Barack Obama.
