    Default 9 indicted on charges of accessing Obama records

    You know that if this had happened to Bush then the right would be ALL OVER THIS like flies on shit condemning the perps!


    Michael J. Crumb, Associated Press Writer, On Thursday May 13, 2010, 8:29 am EDT

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Nine people were indicted Wednesday on federal charges of accessing President Barack Obama's student loan records while they were employed for a Department of Education contractor in Iowa.

    The U.S. attorney's office said a grand jury returned the indictments in U.S. District Court in Davenport.

    All nine are charged with exceeding authorized computer access. They are accused of gaining access to a computer at a Coralville office where they worked between July 2007 and March 2009, and accessing Obama's student loan records while he was either a candidate for president, president-elect or president.

    U.S. attorney spokesman Mike Bladel referred questions to online copies of the indictments.

    Each of eight indictments posted by Wednesday night were brief, saying the charged individual "intentionally exceeded authorized access to a computer and thereby obtained information from a department and agency of the United States" and "intentionally accessed student loan records" of Obama without authorization.

    Those charged are Andrew J. Lage, 54, Patrick E. Roan, 51, Sandra Teague, 54 and Mercedes Costoyas, 53, all of Iowa City; Gary N. Grenell, 58, and Lisa Torney, 49, of Coralville; Anna C. Rhodes, 32, of Ainsworth; Julie L. Kline, 38, of West Branch; and John P. Phommivong, 29, for whom no hometown was listed.

    Lage told The Associated Press on Wednesday evening he did not know about the indictment and declined comment.

    Messages were left for Teague, Torney and Costoyas. A telephone listing for Kline rang unanswered and a listing for Rhodes was disconnected. No telephone numbers were immediately found for Phommivong, Roan or Grenell.

    Six of them are accused of accessing Obama's records when he was a candidate, according to the indictments online. One is accused of accessing the records when he was president-elect. An indictment for the ninth defendant was not immediately available online.

    Court records did not name the contractor that employed the defendants.

    Arraignments are scheduled for May 24. The charge is punishable by up to one year in prison and a fine of up to $100,000.

    I wonder why they wanted information on Obama's student loan records.

    Sounds like they were looking for something specific.

    Considering that Obama wasn't forthcoming about his past, including his college years, it's no wonder people are having to resort to breaking the law to learn the facts about our president. If the media would have done their job in the first place, shit like this wouldn't be necessary by anyone.

    I wonder, did all nine conspire together or did they do it individually?

    I wonder if the gov't will have to show the content of these records in order to get a conviction?

    Could be the can of worms Obama didn't want opened.

    Wonder what social security number he used in these records?

    When it comes to a person having financial influence over the budgetary concerns of this nation, I think it's important to know about their financial past. I think we should know if they know how to handle finances.
    That is in no way an excuse for those people to break the law and if found guilty, they should suffer the consequences.

    Hawaii slams door on 'birthers,' who turn to Obama Social Security number

    Tired of repeated requests for President Obama's birth certificate – often from the same people – Hawaii has adopted a law that allows the state to deny such requests. But 'birthers' are now questioning a different document: the Obama Social Security number.


    The copy of President Obama's birth certificate presented by his campaign to refute rumors that he was not born in the US. 'Birthers' have questioned the validity of the document, and some have written to Hawaii to request the actual certificate. Others are focusing on new rumors about the Obama Social Security number.

    Hawaii is saying ‘Aloha’ to the "birthers."

    The state government can legally ignore repeated requests for President Obama’s birth certificate – a blow (or perhaps a publicity boost) to the birther movement, which claims that Mr. Obama was not born the US, and is therefore not eligible to be president.

    The birthers are instead turning to another claim against Obama’s legitimacy: an Internet rumor that questions the Obama social security number. Two private investigators claim that the digits indicate that it was issued in Connecticut, not Hawaii. (The digits in a social security number are allocated based on state of residence when issued.) They also say his social security number belongs to someone born in 1890.

    In Hawaii, the Republican Gov. Linda Lingle signed the birth certificate bill into law Wednesday.

    The Hawaii Department of Health, apparently, has had enough. It receives about 50 requests for Obama’s birth certificate every month, according to the agency’s director, Dr. Chiyome Fukino. And those requests come mostly from the same four to five people, she said in a testimony before the state legislature in February.

    “The time and state resources it takes to respond to these often convoluted inquiries are considerable,” she said in the testimony.

    Sure, but wasn’t Obama the guy who proclaimed, “Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency,” in welcoming remarks to his cabinet and senior staff just one day after he took the oath of office?

    The law, known as Act 100, takes a detour around the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by allowing state agencies a limited exemption from FOIA requirements when repeated requests for information are made by the same person. The law covers all agencies but it specifically targets people who repeatedly request a copy of Obama’s Hawaii birth certificate, the Honolulu Advertiser reported Thursday.

    In an interview with WABC Radio in New York, Governor Lingle said the state’s health director personally viewed Obama’s birth record.

    “The president was, in fact, born at Kapi’olani Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii,” she said on air. “And that’s just a fact.”

    According to the certification of live birth (which is considered the same as a birth certificate, legally), he was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961.

    That’s been confirmed by factcheck.org.

    And thanks to Act 100, that’s all the fact-checking anyone can do, for now.

    Should we also consider the financial past of family members?
