Sibelius Calls For Investigation-of Contracting Practices at HHS

"I believe strongly in the need for accountability, and in the importance of being good stewards of taxpayer dollars," 

-Kathleen Sibelius

You can't beat this for chutzpah. As HHS Secretary Kathleen Sibelius heads back to Capitol Hill to try and explain the Obamacare mess, she is calling for an investigation-into how her department engages in contracting.

Save yourself some trouble, Kathy. I can help. You might start with how that monster $670 million+ contract to design the rollout website went to CGI Federal, a Canadian-based outfit, whose senior VP was a lady named Toni Townes-Whitley, who by coincidence just happened to be a classmate of Michelle Obama at Princeton, and who, just be coincidence visited the White House in her position several times to discuss said rollout website. (Hat tip

                                                       "Coincidence? We don't think so."

Sibelius is borrowing a page from the Obama  playbook. When things go wrong look for underlings to throw under the bus. Very low underlings I might add. If you throw somebody too high up the food chain under the bus, they might be in a position to incriminate you.

Just like Sibelius, who just might be in a position to incriminate Obama. That's why Obama doesn't can her.

If Sibelius had any integrity, she would take responsibility for this mess and resign. Instead, she orders an "investigation".
