Breaking News on Passport-gate: The Field has Advance word

March 21, 2008

Check out this story to come out soon. Clinton friends implicated in scandal. I’m not sold yet on a direct connection to Sen. Clinton’s campaign, however, this doesn’t look good. Go here to read the news.

    Ya know, I had a friend who, while in college, did summer temp work for the IRS. This was back when computers were mainframes, and (IIRC) the IRS had a computer, but what it did was spit out lists of names, and then filing clerks pulled the physical files connected with those names from wherever they were, and people like my friend had to go fetch them and take them to the people who were going to do things with them. And, whenever the file belonged to a celebrity, my friend peeked. He wasn’t supposed to, but he did. And I’m ready to bet that the temps who peeked at Obama’s, McCain’s, and Hillary Clinton’s files did so for the same reasons: boredom and curiosity. The only difference is that with modern software, the system can be set up to notify someone when the peeking happens. I don’t put much past the Clinton campaign, but this one seems like a non-story to me.

    The more I read about it the more I agree with you nm. But imagine if today’s technology had been around when Nixon was the President . . .
