Earlier Thursday, we reported that James O'Keefe released a video showing an Obamacare navigator conspiring to release personal data obtained through the healthcare website for partisan political purposes. The plot thickened, however, when the Gateway Pundit's Jim Hoft revealed on Wednesday that Christopher Tarango, the navigator in O'Keefe's video, was also the regional field director for the El Paso office of Organizing for Action, Barack Obama's campaign arm.
"In fact," Hoft said, "Tarango is mentioned on Obamas official Organizing for Action website."
Tarango, Hoft added, was a top official with Obama's campaign arm.
"Now hes working for Enroll America and hes willing to release private data for political purposes," Hoft added.
Hoft supported his contention with screen shots of websites identifying Tarango as an OFA official.
In O'Keefe's latest video, Dallas native Lawrence Jones posed as a representative of a Democratic political action committee who met with Tarango, currently the communications director of Enroll America, in Austin.
While meeting with Tarango at a coffee shop, Jones offered to purchase a list that included personal information obtained by Enroll America during events set up to sign people in to Obamacare.
"The snag," KDFW reported, is that "Enroll America is a non-profit and tax-exempt, and therefore, cannot be involved in partisan politics."
At first Tarango appeared reluctant, KDFW said, but suggested running the idea by a higher-up.

"I'm going Enroll America right now, but I'm also, I shouldn't be saying this, but I'm also helping out with HD 50, so that's as partisan as it gets," Tarango said. "There's a lot of talent that got sucked into Organizing for Action. I mean, there's a lot of talent that got sucked into Enroll America, but we are all Obama people."

“...but we are all Obama people”
Which means they all live by “Rule 17”?
