SHARE Sweet: Three breaches of Obama’s passport files.

WASHINGTON–Yet another twist in this long campaign–the State Department announced Sen. Barack Obama’s passport file was breached three times–the latest last week. Now there are demands for investigations, including from Sen. Joe Biden, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and former presidential candidate.

“But we need to understand why these employees had access to this information in the first place, why they sought the information, and why it took over two months for this matter to come to light,” Biden said.

BIDEN Issues Statement on the Breach of Senator Obamas Passport Files

Washington, DC Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee U.S. Senator Joseph R. Biden, Jr. (D-DE) issued the following statement upon learning that State Department contract employees breached U.S. Sen. Barack Obamas confidential passport files:

I am deeply troubled that State Department contract employees sought access to Senator Barack Obama’s passport files. Firing or disciplining those responsible is an important first step. But we need to understand why these employees had access to this information in the first place, why they sought the information, and why it took over two months for this matter to come to light. I urge the Secretary of State to promptly refer this matter to the State Department Inspector General for investigation.
