James O’Keefe rustles up some fraudulent Obamacare navigators
He’s the fastest cam in the West. Say what you want, but the guy gets results.
KDFW in Dallas, TX:
The Urban League of Greater Dallas fired one person and suspended three others after a video from a conservative activist reportedly showed the workers encouraging health care applicants to lie.
An edited video was released Monday that seemingly shows so-called health care Navigators encouraging people to lie on forms signing up for health care to get better rates…
The Urban League said in a statement on Tuesday it “does not condone, nor would we ever sanction, misleading the public or any individual who seeks our assistance about any issue, and particularly in this case, an issue as critical as health care…”
The Urban League also called for the unedited video of the incidents to be released. It said the undercover applicants were told the people they were speaking to were Navigators-in-training and “the full context of these comments is not reflected in the video.”
Wait. If O’Keefe supposedly took them out of context, why suspend them? And what context would make it okay for them to tell people to lie and defraud taxpayers? Did they say “Just kidding!” and he edited it out?
Here’s the video again, in case you missed it:
The cowboy stuff makes me cringe a little bit, but I can’t argue with his results. Can’t wait to see what’s next:
Producing the next Obamacare navigator fraud videos as fast as we can. Release as early as tomorrow…
