Toni Townes-Whitley – Michelle Obama Princeton classmate & pal executive CGI federal – company that built Obamacare website

mo_uglyToni Townes-Whitley was a classmate and pal of Michelle Obama (then Michelle Robinson) back in 1985 when the two graduated from Princeton. In yet another amazing ‘coincidence’ Toni Townes-Whitley also just so happens to be a top executive at CGI Federal, the company that earned the no-bid contract to build the failed Obamacare website. Toni Townes-Whitley is described as the Senior Vice-President, Civilian Agency Programs at CGI. $678 million of your tax dollars was paid to CGI Federal to build the non-working website. Pay to place must just be the Chicago way. No wonder Obama had that arrogant smirk on his face as he was signing the ObamaCARE bill back in 2010.

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

    Talk about cronyism. Definitely the Chicago way. What influence did Valerie Jarrett have in seeing that Moochelle’s friend was awarded the 634 million dollar contract?

    We will see who has the last “smirk” on their face when this mess is over.

    If I did what Michelle did at work – I would be fired!!!

      Prison more likely

    I see nothing in this woman’s resume that qualifies her for much of anything. Who gets applauded in a newsletter for returning to work?

    So, do please share with your readers: Through what source did you learn/verify that the two women were actually “pals” as you claim?

    If you have to stretch the truth to bend your readers opinions, then you lose credibility.

    Further, the connection is immaterial and a non-starter. CGI Federal won their IDIQ contract with the government in 2007–long before the Obamas took office. Look it up. It’s even right in the Examiner article where all this hoopla originated.

    Finally, don’t assume that I’m a liberal or that I support the ACA. I’m not and I don’t. I do, however, support honest reporting of just the facts. Articles and opinion pieces designed to outrage just widen the divide among The People and perpetuate the hatred that is leading our great country’s demise. Shame on you.

    Even if CGI won some contracts in 2007 as in the comments it was another 16 companies in the bid, follow the money. Assume that the program can cost 50-100 million with programmers, testing, running live in some state for testing where is another 400-500 million dollars, I know where “kickbacks”. Follow the money, CGI probably donate to “organizing for action” or another clowns pocket and to moochelle created companies, for Valerie, you can’t forget your friends. Bolshevicks and commies know how divide , obummer copy of Russia of 90’s. KGB in charge like in here is CIA or FBI. Exactly like Putin made his billions.
