AN IOWA woman pleaded guilty today to accessing President Barack Obama's student loan records without permission.
Mercedes Costoyas, 53, from Iowa City, was one of nine employees of a US Department of Education (DOE) contractor alleged to have accessed the private records between July 2007 and March 2009, The Quad-City Times reported.
The workers were employed by the Vangent call centre in Coralville, a town outside of Iowa City.
Vangent handles incoming calls for various agencies, including financial aid applications for the DOE. The forms contain confidential financial and family information, KCRG-TV in Iowa reported.
The nine defendants were charged with one count of exceeding authorised computer access.

Did she get a chance to see his social security number perhaps? That’s what I want to know.
if you are going to cop a plea, then sing!!
I wonder how she was caught.
Of course, they probably have such records flagged flagged for any and all access.
I knew a guy who bragged that his friend found Dan Quayle's SS number, and this was way-hayyy before the web.
This is wrong. These people should be arrested and charged.
That said, those who violated Sarah Palin’s privacy, and those who illegally revealed ‘sealed’ court records of their opponent to win an election over JACK RYAN should be in jail as well.
Also, that Obama needed a student loan argues against the Manchurian Candidate theories that Obama was being funded, groomed or set up by some shadowy nefarious sugar daddy.
I wonder if he paid it off?
Did you keep a copy, Mercedes?
Wonder if she was charged with the task of removing ‘problematic’ data or with the task of finding problematic data.
I would think real records have been deleted & she didn’t find anything and that what was flagged was anyone searching for the name.
You assume that Obama is above trying to claim foreign nationality for foreign student loans/grants and American citizenship for Federal “student aid;” I wouldn’t put that past him.
Not necessarily. The sugar daddy rumors center around his going to Harvard.
The student loan data might be restricted to Occidental and, perhaps, Columbia.
Recall that he graduated Columbia in 1983. He then spent two years working in NYC, first for Business International Corp., then New York Public Interest Research Group (sound suspicious?). He then moved to Chicago in 1985 and did duty as a community organizer in Chicago for three years before attending Harvard in 1988.
If there was a "sugar daddy", my guess would be that Obama probably came to his attention either at the public interest "research group" or back in Chicago.
I wouldn’t put it past him to try that, but, there’s no way he could get away with it - the same financial aid officials at the school would need to process both requests.
How is that wrong?
>I wouldnt put it past him to try that, but, theres no way he could get away with it - the same financial aid officials at the school would need to process both requests.
And how would they know that “Barry Soetoro” & “Barrak Hussien Obama,” with completely different social security numbers, were in actuality the same person?
