I wonder what they would find out about me

Here are the search terms Monica Goodling used when she pre-screened DOJ applicants using LexisNexis:

[First name of a candidate]! and pre/2 [last name of a candidate] w/7 bush or gore or republican! or democrat! or charg! or accus! or criticiz! or blam! or defend! or iran contra or clinton or spotted owl or florida recount or sex! or controvers! or racis! or fraud! or investigat! or bankrupt! or layoff! or downsiz! or PNTR or NAFTA or outsourc! or indict! or enron or kerry or iraq or wmd! or arrest! or intox! or fired or sex! or racis! or intox! or slur! or arrest! or fired or controvers! or abortion! or gay! or homosexual! or gun! or firearm!

Apparently she was particularly concerned with applicants that have sex, have been arrested or fired because those terms are used twice. Can you say uptight? But then again what can we really expect from a religious zealot with a mail order law degree?
