Nearly everyone I know who voted for Obama are wishing they had not. I've never seen this before except to a lesser degree with Carter.
Sometimes you have to do what you feel is right in spite of the laws.
but seriously no one owns the Internet ... so wouldn't that mean that its a public free for all and that if his information is on the Internet and able to be accessed through he Internet that anyone who uses the Internet has a right to do so ?
what would have happened if someone outside of the USA's jurisdiction accessed this information using the Internet and posted it on the Internet for other people to read ???
Compare it to those who hacked the private emails to find the information behind the climategate fiasco if it helps. The point is, sometimes we need to look to see what, if anything, is being hidden from the people.
I'm not saying they were legally correct but instead morally correct as I see it. When you are in the limelight, people are going to look into you. It may not be fair but that is the way it is. And if you will be part of governing an entire country, I support the citizen's curiosity to an extent. As in, things that are relevant to the constitution and leadership.
I frown on invading the personal space of others for irrelevant matters (who have they slept with, what sexuality are they, etc.) but remember some of the accused did the deed years ago while the topic was fresh and not well known. Had they uncovered something revealing, they would have altered history.
Sometimes the ends justify the means, in other words.
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.

But looking at information IS taking it.
Give out your SSN and bank account information in your next reply...I swear I will only LOOK at it. I won't grab it off the screen...it will stay right where it is at.
Your argument is kind of silly.

People give up their Private Life when they become Public Figures.
That has been known and accepted for centuries.
Just ask Paris Hilton, Charlie Sheen or Tiger Woods.
