Listen to the Story
Ohio’s governor placed on leave an agency director who was questioned over why state computers were used to find personal information on “Joe the Plumber.”
Gov. Ted Strickland said in a statement that Helen Jones-Kelley, director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, was placed on paid administrative leave over allegations a state computer or state e-mail account was used to assist in political fundraising.
The statement Friday did not mention the checks made on Samuel J.Wurzelbacher, a Toledo-area man known as Joe the Plumber who became a centerpiece in the final weeks of the presidential campaign.
State Inspector General Tom Charles is investigating whether Jones-Kelley improperly authorized a search of government records on Wurzelbacher.
