Obamacare: Michelle Obama’s college classmate is a VP for the company which won the no bid contract to create the exchange website

October 25, 2013

 From The Daily Caller:

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 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.

Toni Townes ’85 is a onetime policy analyst with the General Accounting Office and previously served in the Peace Corps in Gabon, West Africa. Her decision to return to work, as an African-American woman, after six years of raising kids was applauded by a Princeton alumni publication in 1998

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 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.

  Looks to me as if this is Barack Obama’s Halliburton.

    This is way too funny! Attention all Americans please send all of your money,(health insurance, income tax, bank accounts) directly to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW Washington, DC 20500. How can anyone take our ruling elite demi-gods seriously. We have the biggest Banana Republic ever. Every day another story of graft and corruption.

      Yeah, when that Senator ( I forget his name) said the Republicans were holding a monkey court he was right because what other type of court would you expect in a “banana” republic
