11/12/13, "Are #ObamaCare Navigators Teaming With Battleground Texas To Turn The Lone Star State Blue?" RedState.com, LaborUnionReport
"No, your information is not safe under ObamaCare…at least not in Texas.
Earlier this year, a left-wing group of organizers and operatives formed a group called Battleground Texas.
Headed by a former field director of Obama for America, Battleground Texas’ sole aim is to turn Texas from a so-called “red state” to another California–that is, almost singularly controlled by liberal Democrats.
Publicly, Battleground Texas is focused on registering voters. Its real purpose, however, is not nearly as benign:
The organization, dubbed “Battleground Texas,” plans to engage the state’s rapidly growing Latino population, as well as African-American voters and other Democratic-leaning constituencies that have been underrepresented at the ballot box in recent cycles. Two sources said the contemplated budget would run into the tens of millions of dollars over several years – a project Democrats hope has enough heft to help turn what has long been an electoral pipe dream into reality.Now, however, a video released by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas over the last few days has revealed that Battleground Texas may actually be gathering data on ObamaCare enrollees from one of the groups enlisted to enroll ObamaCare enrollees.
According to O’Keefe’s video, Enroll America, a “501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to maximize the number of uninsured Americans who enroll in health coverage made available by the Affordable Care Act” is sharing data with Battleground Texas.
Clarence Landry, an organizer with Enroll America, Texas, is seen on the video talking about working with, and cross-pollinating the same data with Battleground Texas.
A moment later, a woman named Adrian Bell [sic], a field director with Battleground Texas explains that Battleground Texas is a “Democratic organization.”
Another individual, Bill Hunn, explains that Battleground Texas is a “political action committee.”
If Battleground Texas is a Democratic political action committee as is stated in the video, why is Enroll America sharing data with them?
According to the Enroll America’s website, the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) awarded health centers in Texas a total of $9,907,738 to provide outreach and enrollment assistance and HHS is planning to provide another $8,151,185 to organizations in Texas to serve as navigators.
That a portion of this money (how much is unknown) is being used to share data sharing between a political action group like Battleground Texas, which states it is “a Democratic organization” is highly questionable. Whether it is illegal, is another matter entirely.
The fact is, if Battleground Texas is gathering data from ObamaCare enrollees that will be later used for political purposes, there is a fatal flaw in the enrollment process.

O'Keefe video reveals Obama Navigator fraud:
11/12/13, "Media connection to Obamacare Navigator fraud videos," Legal Insurrection, Anne Sorock
"Project Veritas published a video showing members of the nonprofit National Urban League (NUL) appearing to counsel applicants to lie on their Obamacare forms and “defraud the federal government.” Alarming and quite a preview of the corruption that will come with our new bureaucracy. Helpful also to take a look at the connections between groups like these, our government, and the mainstream media.
It turns out, in the case of the NUL, all three come together quite tidily.
The NUL’s allegiance to Obamacare stems all the way from its president, Marc Morial, who sits on the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability. Morial is connected to more than the President — Capitol City Project reports:
The National Urban League (NUL) is gaining nationwide attention after being caught on tape by James O’ Keefe’s Project Veritas suggesting undercover reporters lie on their Obamacare enrollment applications. The president of the group, Marc Morial, sits on an Obama advisory board.Media, government, and the nonprofit world — quite a threesome."
Morial, the current President and CEO of NUL, is a former Louisiana State Senator and Mayor of New Orleans. On March 29, 2012, President Obama appointed him as a member of the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability.
Morial also has direct ties to the mainstream media. His wife, Michelle Miller, is a correspondent for CBS News and is based out of New York.
