SEBELIUS, OBAMACARE, COLLUSION, BIG CASH, SCANDAL - IT'S ALL HERE
Sorry, Katie. They found the emails
Last summer, as the Foggy Bottom Theater of Scandal blockbusters exploded on Capitol Hill, a Black Box production was underway in the basement around the corner, or under a bridge or something. It was reported at the time that Kathleen Sebelius was soliciting groups that the department of Health and Human Services had relationships with or directly regulated to help bankroll Enroll America, a non-profit organized to get people signed up for ObamaCare.
Largely forgotten now as the key antagonist, Madama Sebelius, went the chair in front of the House Energy and Commerce Committee right before Halloween while the ObamaCare website rollout was bombing, the HHS cabinet member was engaged in questionably ethical fundraising.
Okay, it’s not questionable. It was unethical.
Guess what. It’s looks like she may still be doing it:
HHS WON'T SAY IF SEBELIUS IS FUNDRAISING FOR OBAMACARE
First in a series of stories on the Obama administration's outside fundraising efforts to promote Obamacare enrollment.
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and other department staff may be continuing to solicit private donations to help an outside group promote the president's health care law as the administration works to boost enrollment figures after a troubled fall rollout.
News last May that Sebelius had asked business executives and nonprofit groups to donate toEnroll America, a nonprofit organization formed to help encourage millions of Americans to sign up for the new Obamacare insurance exchanges, provoked an uproar among Republicans on Capitol Hill
Two GOP-led House committees launched investigations, and several Republican senators called on the Health and Human Services inspector general to investigate Sebelius' fundraising drive, which watchdogs have described as an unethical shakedown for cash.
Eight months after the news broke, Sebelius' spokeswoman last Friday sidestepped questions from the Washington Examiner on whether her boss has continued to solicit funds from outside groups for Enroll America's efforts.
