Time for another Michelle Obama scowl. CGI Federal has been fired from the disaster healthcare.gov site. Why is Mooch going to be pissed? Because Toni Townes-Whitley is BFFs with Michelle Obama and an executive CGI federal. Maybe this is why Michelle Obama stayed back in Hawaii with Oprah and CBS’ Gayle King. Toni Townes-Whitley is a Senior Vice-President, Civilian Agency Programs at CGI and was a classmate at Princeton and pal of Michelle Obama (then Michelle Robinson) back in 1985.
The administration is getting rid of CGI Federal, the U.S. arm of the Canadian company, and signing a new year-long approximately $90 million contract with Accenture. CGI Federal caused massive headaches for the administration’s Department of Health and Human Services, which knew about potential problems with the site, including security risks, before it even launched.
The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill Friday to force the federal government to notify Americans within two business days if their personal information is breached on the Obamacare site.
