Passportgate - The Plumbers strike again

Please, please, please let this be Bush's Watergate!

Via BBC:

"The US Department of State has fired two contractors and disciplined a third for accessing the passport file of presidential hopeful Barack Obama.A spokesman for the department, Sean McCormack, said the cases were likely caused by "imprudent curiosity". But he said it was not clear what the employees may have seen or what they were looking for."

Liar. Of course McCormack knows what the Plumbers were looking for and why they were doing it.
