Is this for real ?
Well it just never stops. Now that horse with bad knees aka AHA/ Obamacare is doing double duty to get personal information too ? See information at link below first:
Do you know where your personal data is going?
After meeting with several Obamacare Navigators who openly encouraged our undercover reporters to lie about income status, health history and more, it became clear that personal data was also being “cross-pollinated.”
Enter Enroll America, a Sebelius-linked group dedicated to signing people up for Obamacare and Chris Tarango, Texas Enroll America Communications Director who Project Veritas caught on tape agreeing to help obtain a private list of potential Obamacare enrollee data for election/political purposes. Tarango goes so far to say he’ll “Do whatever it f****** takes.”
Note National Review:
What else might Enroll America be doing with that information? “Their contact info and insurance status are added to our database, and may be shared with partners working on enrollment efforts in that consumer’s community,” an Enroll America spokesman tells National Review Online. “We do not share any data with any 501(c)(4) or other political organizations or candidates.”
But O’Keefe’s investigator, posing as the president of a phony 501(c)(4) political-action committee, caught Enroll America’s Texas communications director conspiring to share its trove of data in order to help him hire a field staff and mobilize voters for the Democratic candidate in an upcoming Texas state-house race. “We can mobilize them if we had that list,” O’Keefe’s investigator tells him.
As a non-partisan, nonprofit political-action committee, Enroll America is strictly prohibited from sharing its data for political purposes. “It’s like safeguarded, it is a lock-and-key type of thing, that’s people’s personal information,” the Enroll America staffer, Christopher Tarango, initially tells O’Keefe’s investigator.
With a little prodding, though, Tarango agrees to try to get him the goods. “If I can present you a valid argument showing that this is working, would you be open to it?” the investigator asks. “If you present to me that it works, then I’d be open to it,” Tarango responds. “Look, I like where your head’s at, you’re going by what we call Rule No. 17, Rule No. 17 is — and I told you is — do whatever it f***ing takes.”
Tarango agrees to speak to a top official in Texas’s Enroll America offices. “I will talk to one person who I think might be open to having this conversation behind closed doors and I’ll get back to you on that,” he says.
“And if they can get the list from off the record you’ll make sure I get it?” O’Keefe’s investigator asks.
Tarango promises: “If we can do it we’re gonna get the list.”
Next we look at Tarango:
Well, it was there a few hours ago, so I don’t know….it had a few months here and 8 months there, lobbying, etc.. but now gone ?

A former chief White House ethics lawyer has filed a Hatch Act complaint against a D.C.-based health care exchange, alleging that its online communications with liberal activist group Organizing for Action (OFA) violated rules against federal political activity.
Richard Painter, who served as the chief ethics counsel under President George W. Bush, requested a federal investigation into DC Health Link in a Nov. 13 letter to the Office of Special Counsel’s Carolyn Lerner.
Painter says DC Health Link appears to be subject to the Hatch Act, which limits political activity by federal employees, because the health exchange was created by the D.C. government and is acting on its behalf. He noted that the exchange may have violated the Hatch Act after it promoted OFA’s pro-Obamacare activism on Twitter.
Painter said DC Health Link may have also violated the Hatch Act by “following” OFA’s D.C. twitter account and retweeting one of its messages on Nov. 8.
snip~ And also this at link above as well:
“The communications that I believe violated the Hatch Act were made on Twitter and all relate to Organizing for Action (“OFA”), formerly known as Organizing for America, an organization the [Office of Special Counsel] has specifically identified as a ‘partisan political group,’” wrote Painter.
On Nov. 5, DC Health Link’s Twitter handle wrote, “Our friends at @OFA_DC are looking to hear your experience with #Obamacare. Share your feedback with them at [link].” The link directed users to my.barackobama.com, the official OFA website.
OFA describes itself as a nonpartisan organization. It previously operated as an arm of the Obama campaign under the name Organizing for America, which was deemed a partisan political group by the Office of Special Counsel.
President Obama will join an OFA call Monday night to discuss Obamacare, which has been plagued with problems during its rollout.
