Nosey Nelly Quit in a Snit
Helen Jones-Kelley, Ohio’s Director of Department of Job and Family Services, has quit, along with two others involved in digging through Joe the Plumber’s confidential information. I feel like this is old news, but can’t seem to find it on the main page, so…
In a four-paragraph statement, she said, “it is with sadness and clarity that I have decided to resign…This decision comes after having a time of pause, in which I realize that I continue to be used as a political postscript, providing a distraction from urgent state priorities.
“My professional career, and the legacy of service I have established, has been, and continues to be, far too important for me to allow my reputation and my commitment as a servant leader to be disparaged. I also remain concerned for the safety of my family and myself.”
Self-serving and revisionist. She didn’t have much concern for turning Joe the Plumber’s life into a political postscript, did she?
Thanks to Dave in Texas who got the link (I think) from commenter Kestrel.
