Liberals in Ohio have quite a track snooping on private citizens. Democrat state officials abused their access and plundered through Joe the Plumber's records. And now, the Ohio Democrat Party has been caught trying to illegally obtain info on concealed carry permit holders in the Buckeye State in order to bombard them with anti-gun propaganda.

Fortunately, one responsible Democrat blew the whistle and put the brakes on the privacy invasion - via Cleveland Plain Dealer, hat tip: reader Tyler:

The Ohio Democratic Party tried unsuccessfully this week to get information on all people licensed to carry concealed weapons in the Buckeye State.

The state party sent letters to Ohio's 88 sheriffs requesting the names and addresses of permit holders and the dates the licenses were issued. Ohio has about 211,000 permit holders.

But neither the Democrats nor any other political party can get that information. The records are exempt from the public record laws. The only public access was given to journalists when then-Gov. Bob Taft signed the law in 2004.

Lorain County Sheriff Phil Stammitti, a Democrat, denied the request Friday.

"I must also advise you that the information you are requesting is NOT a public record and CANNOT be released," Stammitti wrote in a letter to the party.

The Democrats intended to target people who support the Second Amendment - the constitutional right to bear arms - with campaign information, said party spokesman, Seth Bringman.

While I normally refrain from defending moonbat liberals, I doubt the Ohio Dumbocrats had any ill will in getting this list other than pandering to obvious pro-gun voters.

I wrote this earlier about it:
