State Department snooper still on staff

One of the State Department contractors who peered into both Barack Obama and John McCain's files is still on the payroll.

The company that supplied the contractor, The Analysis
Corporation, says it didn't fire the employee at the department's
request. The company says the delay was meant to give authorities
time to investigate.

The State Department says that person no longer has access to
passport files.

Officials are trying to unearth the motives of four employees
who peered into Obama, McCain and Hillary Rodham Clinton's passport
files. The snooping raises questions whether there were political
motives and why two of the employees, who worked for Stanley
Incorporated, were dismissed before they could be interviewed.

Obama is urging congressional involvement in the investigation,
saying it is not enough to leave it up to the Bush administration.
