"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Michelle Obama's Princeton Classmate is Senior Exec at Company the Built ObamaCare Website with a No Bid Contract


"Look, my friend just happened to work there. Let's not make a federal case out of it. Oh... and you're all too fat!!!"

But I'm sure it's just a coincidence.

From The Daily Caller:

First Lady Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate is a top executive at the company that earned the contract to build the failed Obamacare website. 
Toni Townes-Whitley, Princeton class of ’85, is senior vice president at CGI Federal, which earned the no-bid contract to build the $678 million Obamacare enrollment website at Healthcare.gov. CGI Federal is the U.S. arm of a Canadian company.  
Townes-Whitley and her Princeton classmate Michelle Obama are both members of the Association of Black Princeton Alumni
[...]  
George Schindler, the president for U.S. and Canada of the Canadian-based CGI Group, CGI Federal’s parent company, became an Obama 2012 campaign donor after his company gained the Obamacare website contract. 
As reported by the Washington Examiner in early October, the Department of Health and Human Services reviewed only CGI’s bid for the Obamacare account. CGI was one of 16 companies qualified under the Bush administration to provide certain tech services to the federal government. A senior vice president for the company testified this week before The House Committee on Energy and Commerce that four companies submitted bids, but did not name those companies or explain why only CGI’s bid was considered. 
On the government end, construction of the disastrous Healthcare.gov website was overseen by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), a division of longtime failed website-builder Kathleen Sebelius’ Department of Health and Human Services.
 
After the disastrous release of the ObamaCare website, my wife asked me why that particular company was hired. My immediate reply was that it was a political payoff. I just didn't know for whom.

Now we know.

It's funny how alll it takes is a little friendship and some built in juice to pull in graft opportunities all the while wasting a billion dollars of taxpayers money. It's the Obama age.
