$600 Mil ObamaCare Website Co. Exec, Michelle Obama Pal, Visited White House

tonitowneswhitleywithobamas1

Before this the link between Toni Townes-Whitley and Michelle Obama was only casual. Toni Townes-Whitley had become a top executive at a company with a poor track record that began receiving huge contracts under Obama.

Was Toni Townes-Whitley still a good friend of Michelle Obama? Was her role in receiving all those government contracts only coincidental?

The Daily Caller has answered part of the question quite definitively.

Michelle Obama’s relationship with Princeton classmate Toni McCall Townes-Whitley, whose company earned the no-bid contract to design the disastrous Healthcare.Gov Obamacare website, has continued to socialize with the First Lady since the Obamas have been in the White House.

Townes-Whitley and her husband even enjoyed “Christmas with the Obamas” at the White House in December 2010, according to a Facebook album created by Townes-Whitley.

Although neither Michelle Obama nor Townes-Whitley has discussed their relationship, the Christmas event took place just seven months after Townes-Whitley joined CGI Federal as a senior vice president.

A 600 million dollar website that doesn’t work made by a company with a lousy track record and a top executive who’s a pal of the First Lady.

It’s the free market at work. I blame the private sector.

    If this was a friend of Laura Bush, it would be the lead story on ever network and front page of every paper. The double-standard is just amazing.

    • Guest

      If this was a friend of Laura Bush no one would be particularly interested today in it, except for perhaps the irony of it all… however, it was a no-bid contract with a company that had a less than stellar reputation.

        Kind of reminds me of Cheneys ties with Haliburtan when they got the contract to rebuild Iraq and it was a no-bid contract. The crooks are everywhere! Get rid of them all.

        • dbw

          MJL is nothing more than an ideologue – conservative basher. Halliburton was imminently qualified for the rebuilding work in Iraq. It is a top rank engineering and construction firm. I know all of the major ones – Halliburton, Bechtel, Stone & Webster, Fluor, KBR, Parsons Brinckerhoff, the Shaw Group, Tecnip (Fr), SNC Lavalin (Can). Halliburton is among the best; some of the others are not (some, namely Lavalin even have been indicted for corruption).

          • Slunicko

            Still, many Obamists will use the Halliburton as an argument. To those I would say, first, their contract was probably won on a bias base, although I am sure they went through a bidding process, Second, they did not fail. Third, Obama did not even bother to go through a bidding and just awarded his benefactor who apparently cannot deliver. Is this a change he promised? Wake up, people, and stop finding Bush’s faults to justify all misgivings of the one you once bet on. He promised to be better, and he just cannot keep that promise. Be honest to yourselves.

          ^^^ too much obama purple drank.

          I love this blame Bush mentality…sure lets you know who the idiots are, right mjl? Bush was over 6 years ago, let it go, this tyrant (ovomit) is far worse, except for lazy welfare scum as yourself!

        I don’t understand this no-bid process…it is an open-invitation for fraud and nepotism and you know these politicians love it so they can get the money back for their next campaign.

  • objectivefactsmatter

    That’s socialism. How else can the elites decide who to hand our money to?

  • truebearing

    Another corrupt black in Obama’s racist, marxist coup.

    My mind drifts back to a comment Obama once made about there being more than one way to make reparations. Now we see the methods and see the consequences. Who are the racists in America again?

  • Joyce Caron

    Do Valerie Jarrett’s daughter, Laura Jarrett and her husband, Tony Balkisson, work for CGI Federal. What is the relationship to Bas Balkisson?

  • Richard Fontaine

    Let’s accept people into schools that they aren’t qualified to be accepted at and see what happens. How is that working out for you?

  • Eugene Fitzgerald

    The contract under which CGI did the Obamacare website work, in fact, began in 2007 as a contract with HHS to handle Medicare and Medicaid IT.

  • thegreatcorntrollio

    Shorter than the list for black yachtsman? Black computer experts who can write code. What a joke

    • Marilyn Z

      Just an aside..my son is an IT professional and two of the best programmers he has worked with have been black. He seldom compliments any of his co-workers, but he raved about these two guys. We are white and very conservative, but there are some great, intelligent, hard-working young blacks out there.

      The scandal here, aside from Obamacare itself, is that they didn’t take bids from KNOWN and ACCOMPLISHED companies IN THE US.

    New name: Flash Omobma, so many scandals and crimes they can’t be investigated.

  • Jodi

    Google CGI & look at the govt contracts it’s been awarded. Military, DOD, election monitoring, Medicare, & on & on. By the way CGI FEDERAL is based in the US. It was US personnel who did the work.

    This is the hight of crony-ism. To make matters worse the White house awarded a $700 million dollar contract to this same company to build websites for at least 3 other gov. agencies. This is a crock and their hands should be tied some how from spending all this money for incompetence.

    No one is saying “you didn’t build that” this time. You DID build that, and you did a crappy job. And for God’s sake, why not a US company? It is almost certainly illegal, but who are you going to complain to?

  • dbw

    I agree with one of the comments – look for Jarrett and Axelrod fingerprints.
