1 Navigator Fired, 3 Suspended After Expose

From the Dallas-Ft.Worth Fox News affiliate, KDFW:

One fired, three suspended after undercover health care video

November 12, 2013

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.

Which raises the question why highly partisan groups like the Urban League and ACORN and Planned Parenthood and the SEIU have been allowed to provide most of the navigators in the first place?

An edited [sic] video was released Monday that seemingly [sic]shows so-called health care Navigators encouraging people to lie on forms signing up for health care to get better rates.

"Seemingly" in the sense that the navigators are on videotape telling people to lie.

The video was released by Project Veritas, which was started by conservative activist James O’Keefe. O’Keefe gained notoriety [sic] for videos in 2009 that eventually brought down ACORN and was also arrested in 2010 for attempting to bug the phones in the office of Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu for a different project.

O’Keefe wasn’t trying to bug anyone. He was trying to show Landrieu’s office was refusing to answer their phones when constituents were calling to register their opposition to Obama-Care.

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."

‘… If they get caught.’

The Urban League said the person fired was a "part-time receptionist trainee" who was not authorized to speak on behalf of The Urban League or act as a Navigator and said it supports decertifying three "Navigators-in-training" in the video.

So why not fire all four of them?

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." …

"Training" takes about a day. So what are the odds that all four of these little lambs were in training? And exactly what "context"would ever justify navigators telling people to lie?

  1. Okay. I’ll say it first. The similarities of all the ‘Navigators’ was expected.

    The Urban League said in a statement to the Navigators-in-training ;
    “As always, should any member of your team be caught or killed, the President will disavow all knowledge of your actions.”
