Two Ohio public employees were fired for snooping into the records of homegrown "Americn Idol" runner-up Crystal Bowersox of Columbus. One faces a felony charge. The State Highway Patrol says the agency did an audit in May and found files on Bowersox were improperly accessed eight times. The audit was backed up by a state law passed in 2009 that cracks down on unauthorized record-checking. It was prompted by snooping on a political candidate known as "Joe the Plumber." Bowersox says she feels violated but has no plans to sue.
