Michelle Obama’s Princeton Classmate Is Top Exec at CGI, Which Received No-Bid Contract for Healthcare.gov

After Obama announced that the best and brightest would be called in to fix the HealthCare.gov debacle, many wondered why the best and brightest weren’t called upon to build the $634 million website in the first place. Here’s their answer:

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.

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.

What do you get when you mix cronyism and corruption with Affirmative Action? Whatever it is, you don’t want it running your government — or your healthcare system.

    Dammit! Looks like the boy in the White House is going to knock me and Clinton out of a First Place tie for the most corrupt Administration.

    Hell, Franklin, there’s beaucoup corruption on that “Schindler’s List.” This only scratches the surface. 😮

    She returned to work “..as an African-American woman”? What was she previously?

    MAINSTREAM PRESS NO LONGER FINDS IT NECESSARY TO SCRUTINIZE MOOCH’S PAL’S COMPANY’S NO-BID AFFIRMATIVE ACTION CONTRACT LIKE THEY DID OLD WHITE MAN CHENEY’S HALLIBURTON

    In 2003, Halliburton Company received a great deal of scrutiny from the establishment press over certain no-bid contracts obtained in connection with the Iraq War. … A Google News Archive Search on “Halliburton no-bid” not in quotes allegedly returns 1,760 items (Google’s counter is suspect, but the list extends to at least 19 pages, or well over 190 items, including multiple items in some listings).

    In 2010, the Washington Times was virtually alone among media outlets in reporting that the Obama administration, despite presidential candidate Barack Obama’s campaign promise never to entertain such deals, had entered into a no-bid contract with KBR, a former subsidiary of Halliburton, “worth as much as $568 million.” It turns out that CGI, the Canadian company which is the lead firm in the design and rollout of HealtCare.gov, also has a no-bid contract with the federal government. But an AP search on “CGI no-bid” (not in quotes) comes up empty. A Google News search on the same string (not in quotes) returns only four times, none of which are establishment press outlets (as would be expected, the Washington Times is one of the four).

    How typical that the press is failing to recognize the existence of the no-bid arrangement, In many of the Halliburton-related instances a decade ago, there was no other firm with the capabilities required. Obviously, there are plenty of IT firms in competition with CGI [but not all had a black college pal of Michelle].

    I wonder if, for the first time in her life, she’s proud of her country.

    This fits right in with the First Ho’s “let ’em eat cake” attitude when it comes to White people’s money.

    I wouldn’t waste my urine peeing on these rotten communist dictate-bastards. I hope someday one of these “people” knocks on my door in need so I can slam it in their tyrannical dipshit face.

    They should have a permanent dye to mark Obama-voters on their foreheads or the back of their hands so we can readily recognize Satan’s imps and take appropriate action.

    “Toni Townes-Whitley has what it takes to get the job.”
    Exactly: she knows Moochelle from college. No other qualifications necessary; incompetence welcomed!

  17. AnalogMan says:

    Her decision to return to work, as an African-American woman,

    And that’s precisely what she does. She’s been working as an African-American woman ever since. And believe me, that’s the last thing you want in a software developer.

  18. ThisObamaNation says:

    De Obama’s jus b tryin to hook a sista up wit a nice gubmint contract.

    It ain’t dere fault she don’t know chit bout building no ObamiCare website!

    De Obama’s was jus tryin to give their personal friend an “equal opportunity”.

    They did this by not allowing other better qualified companies to compete for the contract by submitting their own proposals.

    This makes perfect sense to me…NOT!!!
