Same Person Peeked at McCain Passport

Turns out curiosity may kill the cat, but it doesn't get you fired. The same State Department employee that was reprimanded for looking at Obama's passport file also accessed McCain's. Hillary's was also accessed but by a State Department trainee.

According to CNN, teams from the State Department are going to the Senate offices of all three candidates today to brief their staff on what happened.

In the case of Senator Clinton: "[A] trainee accessed her files in 2007.

'Usually in these training circumstances, people are encouraged to enter a family member's name (in the system), just for training purposes,' McCormack said. 'This person chose Senator Clinton's name.'

The person was immediately 'admonished and it didn't happen again,' he said."
