CINCINNATI (AP) - Federal judges in Cincinnati have rejected a lawsuit by "Joe the Plumber" claiming his rights were violated by a state records search after he voiced public concern over taxes to then-candidate Barack Obama.
The three-judge 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel upheld dismissal of the lawsuit. Samuel Wurzelbacher (WUR'-zuhl-bah-kur) became nationally known as "Joe" during the 2008 presidential campaign after the much-quoted discussion.

Like Palin, Carrie Prejean, former President George Bush and former Vice President Cheney, Joe will never get fair treatment.
There is no right to privacy if you embarrass the Anointed Democrat - that right is restricted to killing unborn children and embarrassing conservatives.
The power to tax is the power to destroy!
See? It's not a police state if nobody gets killed.
The law is for the little people.
Not for big, important liberals.
Now go pay your taxes - your government is broke. :)
The irony of all this is that the controversy came out over Zer0’s response, not Joe’s question.
He should appeal to the Supreme Court. It does not matter that he was individually harmed. The message was sent to the public that anyone who questions those in power face persecution from the government. They caused him public embarassment and harrasment. He may not have been physically harmed but the Democrats did the best they could with what little they had.
Hmmm, wonder how the judges would feel if it were their records being rifled and publicized?
If the people who conducted the database search, and dissemenated his personal info were punished or dismissed, how is it his rights weren’t violated? Does this now open the possibility of these people petitioning the court to get their jobs back, and/or be reimbursed for any fines they were forced to pay?
