Crony Corruption

From the Daily Caller-

First Lady's Princeton classmate is a senior vice president at company that built failed Obamacare website

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.
Boy, am I surprised.

  1. Ah, guilt by association. An old trick, practiced by the Nazis of Germany and the Communists in Russia and Eastern Europe.

    One trusts you've done background checks on every single person in your high school and college classes before you posted this. Who knows? One or more might be involved in something unsavory, if not sitting in a prison somewhere.

    1. Yeah- you are probably right. It was jus coincidence that a huge no-bid contract went to a Canadian company with a proven record of failure.

      "CGI's most famous government project was for the Canadian Firearms Registry. The registry was estimated to cost in total $119 million, which would be offset by $117 million in fees. That’s a net cost of $2 million. Instead, by 2004 the CBC (Canada’s PBS) was reporting costs of some $2 billion — or a thousand times more expensive."

    2. Some would call it "feathering you nest". M & O will have to mooch off someone once their reign come to an end. Perish the thought that the reign never ends/
