4 more at agency punished for 'Joe the Plumber' checks

It's hard to call this "punishment" as it's more of a slap on the wrist. These were significant betrayals of the public trustas well as crimes. Doesn't anyone get fired anymore???
Four more senior managers at the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services have been disciplined for improperly mining state computers for confidential information on "Joe the Plumber."

Jan Allen, acting agency director, announced yesterday that deputy child-support director Doug Thompson and assistant agency director Fred Williams would be placed on unpaid leave Monday.

Thompson will be suspended for four weeks at a loss of about $7,565 in pay, and Williams will lose about $4,434 in salary during a two-week suspension.

Paul Fraunholtz, deputy director of family stability, and Judi Cicatiello, deputy director of unemployment compensation, received written reprimands for their conduct.
