James O’Keefe, the man who helped bring down ACORN through a series of undercover videos, has struck again.
This time, O’Keefe and Project Veritas have uncovered fraud and corruption in the Obamacare navigator program.
Over $67 million dollars in taxpayer funded grants have been directed to the program to help Americans enroll in the Obamacare exchanges.
The latest effort must have given O’Keefe a sense of déjà vu considering Wade Rathke, ACORN’s highly controversial founder, was among the recipients of this money through a group he created after ACORN disbanded.
A Texas navigator site run by the National Urban League is targeted in a new video that depicts “government-paid workers supposedly trained to uphold the law advise clients on how to lie on government forms, evade legal requirements, and ignore proper procedures,” John Fund reported in an article for National Review Online.
The video captures one navigator advising a Project Veritas investigator to lie about smoking, and another telling him not to report income made on the side.
O’Keefe’s cameras then visit Enroll America, a nationwide nonprofit group launched to help folks sign up for health coverage. A group advertised as being “not partisan, non-political.”
But when an official for Enroll America is introduced at an event, the group is said to be “the official group for the DNC [Democratic National Committee].”
Furthermore, according to O’Keefe, Enroll America looks to be working with Battleground Texas, an organization “started by President Obama’s national field director” and is “dedicated to turning Texas blue” — a description Fund attributed to a regional field director for Battleground Texas.
It sounds as if the spirit of ACORN is alive and well, represented by another taxpayer funded scheme that will serve as little more than an extension of the Democratic Party reelection effort.
