Ohio official suspended for misusing “secure” state databases

The Ohio attorney general’s office says it has suspended one of its lawyers for allegedly using state databases to learn information about acquaintances.

A spokeswoman for Ohio Attorney General Nancy H. Rogers said Erin G. Rosen, the Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway general counsel, was found to have allegedly been finding data on social acquaintances through the private databases.

As a result of her alleged actions, Rosen served a temporary suspension last month and has since been transferred to a different crime victim’s services position, spokeswoman Michelle Gatchell said.

You know, this isn’t a new question – how can you trust the people in charge of discharging the public trust? But, you’d think existing checks and balances might cover problems like this.

Presuming you had a government that didn’t spend a portion of its energies denying existing checks and balances.
