Was an Obama Supporter Behind the Improper Passport Access

The Washington Times broke this amazing story:

The third employee, who has not been fired, worked for The Analysis Corporation (TAC), which is headed by John O. Brennan, a former CIA agent who is an adviser to Mr. Obama's presidential campaign on intelligence and foreign policy.

The TAC employee is the only individual to have accessed both Mr. Obama's and Mr. McCain's passport information without proper authorization, a State Department spokesman said. That employee, who was not named, triggered an electronic alarm system, officials familiar with the probe said.. . .


Could he have looked at Obama's file to see if there was anything damaging there that the campaign should know about? Could he have looked at McCain to see if there was anything damaging that they could find?

It's called data voyeurism. It happens all of the time in businesses where employees look in company databases in areas where they shouldn't be. Most companies can't even detect this kind of snooping is going.

Here's how IT joke about data voyeurism:

Dear Anonymous:

I think that your explanation is indeed quite plausible. But I will add that I think that the coverage of this would be different and much more extensive if a Republican supporter was involved.
