“We’re all Obama people” – Will they illegally share private information with campaigns?

Next on James O’Keefe Exposes the Left. Christopher Tarango currently works for Enroll America, a “nonpartisan” 501(c)(3) organization who has an advertised single mission “to maximize the number of uninsured Americans who enroll in health coverage made available by the Affordable Care Act.” That group has access to personal information (name, address, phone and email) of thousands of people who may be interested in, or sign up for, Obamacare.

That information is supposed to be in a lock box, but there really is no such thing. Private information located inside a database can be easily exported and shared. That is what one of O’Keefe’s video operatives suggested to Tarango, who happens to not only be a big supporter of Democrats and President Obama, but he also works on political campaigns. Let’s be clear … Tarango candidly states it may be impossible to get the list and share it with a 501(c)4 Political Action Committee (PAC). “It’s people’s private information.” He knows it’s illegal.

It is illegal for a 501(c)3 nonpartisan organization to share information or conspire with 501(c)4 political groups. (The 501(c)4 PACs may not spend more than 50 percent of their money on politics.)

Christopher Tarango seems to work for, and is completely willing to act in a “business development” role for both groups. His “business development” activities are sometimes off the record, but as he states …. “We’re all Obama people.” After watching the video, I expect Tarango knew he would never be able to get the list, but he was trying desperately to “network” with O’Keefe’s operative and build another political relationship. He’s a sales-person trying to make a deal, a deal he knew he couldn’t deliver just so he could work with the guy in the future. Remember, these types are always looking for their next paid gig somewhere in politics. He’s networking for the future.

Remember, there are millions – maybe billions – of federal dollar funding that has been allocated to promote Obamacare. The government is handing that cash out to groups Enroll America to do marketing and get people signed up. An advertising campaign at the federal level was not enough. There are hundreds of probably exclusively-left wing groups that were provided these grants. They are “community organizing” groups like former members and leaders of Acorn. The main stream media should look into every single one of these groups and find out if they are tied to PACs in any way. I’m willing to bet – just like university and college administrators and faculty members – more than 90 to 95 percent of them are actively associated with Democrats and Organizing for America, Obama’s PAC.

    You sign up for ?bamacare, and your data is a safe as if it were in the IRS data banks!? Oooops……!
    The problem with an enormous government program like this, as with the IRS, is that unlike a private business, where the primary concern is with hackers outside the company trying to steal customer information, a government based “business” is fraught with partisans within the government, political hires to be sure, who are willing and able to disseminate that information for political gain.

    The old bait and switch routine. Drive people into a situation where the subsidy looks like the only way to buy health care insurance and that’s what will happen.
    Once that is done, switch (steal) the name, address, phone numbers including cell numbers, email addresses, and similar information of anyone else residing at that same address into the democrat campaign data banks. That way the navigators don’t even have to change headsets to solicit your vote, dun you with mailings, blanket your email addresses and bombard your computer with pop-ups touting the favored democrat candidates.
    The democrat campaign operatives could easily attach an email virus that would send campaign propaganda to everyone in your address book.
    That is what I call an invitation for political malfeasance. Those files are just too luscious not to steal for political gain. It’s just a couple of key strokes away and, hey, they already have the password!

    Just add to the list of Data Mining/collection of Personal information:
    NSA, Social Security Amdministration, Health Care, and don’t forget the under reported Data mining of Student information in our schools, but that doesn’t seem to be a big deal to anyone.

    I just hate the way President Obama has perverted the word Hope.

    It’s already being done – no question.

    Simply put, the intent of modern day liberal Democrats is the nefarious undermining of ‘things as we know them’.? Fundamental change isn’t achieved over just a few years by playing it straight (and maybe/probably not at all).? But the ends always, always, always justify the means to a Marxist.
