New York Times?! LMAO
Better watch out Pinch, your propaganda may get lost with this outfit doing backups.
If RICO statutes don’t apply to the administration then they’re worthless.
Lois and everyone of those involved in the cover up should be convicted of treason.
Nothing has caused me to lose trust and confidence in our federal government more than this IRS scandal.
Did any of these other customers experience a similar catastrophic loss?
indeed. Id suspect if there good enough for network solutions...they’d be able to handle the IRS backup as well...
It's all part of the "fundamental transformation." The plan is unfolding beautifully.
Interesting that their customer base is all small and mid-size companies with the exception of Johnson & Johnson and the IRS. It’s probably a small dept or division in J&J, too, not an enterprise-wide license.
Just how did a no-name company with a mediocre customer list win a sole-source IRS contract (i.e., no competitive bidders)? What cronyism and corruption was going on in the selection process? Was this company selected because the buyer KNEW their solution was weak?
Network Solutions — 900 employees
IRS — 900,000 employees
Granted NS would have the technical chops to select a good solution, but there’s that small, nagging scale issue.
10% small business set-aside?
The scale of the IRS is indeed very likely unmatched in the world of private business!
Let the TRIALS Begin!
Does that mean that the company Network Solutions with its
900 employees is also part of the SonaSoft company. In
other words Rogue companies within the SonaSoft company.
Perhaps their only client is IRS...No bids would have
went out because IRS created all this...
You missed another one.... under consulting note that CGI is there....you do remember Ocare don’t you????
WMDVBEA woman-, minority-, or service-disabled, veteran-owned business enterprise is at least 51-percent owned by a woman or women, a minority person or group, or a service-disabled veteran or group of veterans who are United States citizens or permanent residents, and who also control and run the business.
In cases of any publicly owned business, one or more women, one or more minority, or service-disabled veteran(s) who are United States citizens or permanent residents, and who also control and run the business, must own at least 51 percent of the stock.
Male or female Hispanic-Americans, African-Americans, Asian-Pacific Americans, Native Americans or any other members whom the Small Business Administration or Secretary of Commerce designates as disadvantaged.
Then I looked up the Sonasoft team...
Nope, no officially sanctioned minorities there. Guess it's hard to find an Indian GC.
Well, forget getting help from them. The only thing, THE ONLY THING, that I have against Indians, is the politics that they practice in the USA. I suspect that this group will cooperate unwillingly in investigations against the Dems and the Feds.

Democratic Forum launched to bring community together
October 29, 2010 in Community Post | 0 Comments
From L to R: Yogi Chugh, Congressman Pete Stark, Robin Torello, Joe Johal & Dr. Romesh Japra
FREMONT: Over 250 people gathered on a rainy afternoon on October 24 as Dr. Romesh and Sunita Japra graciously opened their home to launch the Indian American Democratic Forum of Alameda County (IADFAC) in Fremont.
The main charter for the IADFAC is to bring our community together, a group where 90% people in the people in our County are democrats. The first objective for us is to get members and as many people involved. We need to look at the organizational structure, its bylaws, and create a powerhouse. Our scope is outreach, voter registration, have a speaker series, internships, candidate recruitment, and a fundraising plan. Its a grass roots operation. Its your group, so you should get involved, Joe Johal said, as he energized the audience.
The South Asian demographic in Alameda County has grown over the years. There are approximately 53,798 Asian Indians, of which there are 34,032 Asian Indians in Fremont, 8,187 in Union City, 5,178 in Hayward. Individually our community leaders have done very well but we need to organize ourselves and become a unified voice. The main charter for this group is to bring the people together, said Joe Johal.
If we dont have the youngsters, referring to the population between age 18 to 30, our efforts will be wasted. The youth are our resource. I think what you are doing here today is giving the young people a place to focus. We have the largest group, a wonderful school, an excellent group of educated kid, and with most likely all going to college. We should be proud of what this community has brought to us, remarked Congressman Pete Stark, referring to the South Asian community in Alameda County.
IADFACs primary interest is to further the goals of the Democratic Party, Congressman Stark told India Post. Yogi Chugh, Chair of the Tri-City Democratic Forum, said in his personal capacity, that tonight is about the community, moving along the democratic philosophies and making sure that we are good democrats.
Alameda County Democratic Party Chair Robin Torello told India Post, Alameda County is the largest democratic party by percentage. We also have more people registering as absentees. There is still time for you to take an active role. You can do a lot of things from now to election day such as driving people to the polls and talking to your neighbors to work together to get good democratic candidates elected.
Dr. Japra, urged the group to become members, register to vote, vote, and encourage others to vote. Dr. Japra also urged leaders in other counties to become actively involved. Dr. Harmesh Kumar and Madan Arora are already gearing up to start a group in Contra Costa County.
This event was followed by a fundraiser to re-elect Bill Harrison to the Fremont City Council.
CA17: More on the GOP candidate controversy
By Josh Richman
Thursday, April 3rd, 2014 at 1:34 pm in Mike Honda, U.S. House.
My article in todays editions about whether Democratic House candidate Ro Khanna and/or his supporters had anything to do with getting Republican Joel Vanlandingham into the 17th Congressional District race had far more complexity than room in the paper allowed.
For one thing, theres a personal element of bad blood between Vanila Singh the first Republican to enter the race and Romesh Japra, the Fremont Hindu Temple chairman who is a staunch Khanna supporter.
When Singh entered the race to unseat Rep. Mike Honda in January, analysts said it could help Honda by stripping Khanna of GOP votes in Junes top-two primary election; in fact, a poll in February found Singh, largely by dint of her party, had leapfrogged slightly ahead of Khanna. But then two more Republicans Vanlandingham, and another who was kicked off the ballot last week for petition signature irregularities jumped into the race, potentially splitting the districts small GOP base and helping Khanna surpass all Republicans in June and go one-on-one with Honda in November.
I hear Japra is a somewhat polarizing figure in the Indo-American community, wielding a lot of influence as chairman of the temple and of the Federation of Indian Associations. Its the kind of influence some might resent in an old-country, political power-broker sort of way, but still significant enough that it would be hard for a candidate to snub him.
Singh said Wednesday that she and her parents were longtime friends with Japra, who even attended her childrens birthday parties as recently as last summer. But that ended abruptly when he learned she was considering entering this race, she said; since then, he has both spoken ill of her in the community and demoted her mother from a temple leadership position.
Romesh JapraWeve lost a friend, or someone we thought was a friend, because of dirty politics, she said. The revelation that his closest associates, have actively recruited and signed for a fake Republican candidate to enter the race is shocking.
Thats not proved, of course, though the evidence presented in my story isnt easily explained away. Its also possible as well that if Japra and temple officials were involved in Vanlandinghams candidacy, they acted without Khannas knowledge; American politics is littered with tales of candidates and elected officials being tarred with their supporters independent actions. Singh, however, doesnt buy that.
What Ive seen with my own eyes is Khanna following Japra and them working in concert together, she said. I would have a hard time to believe this was a rogue element that happened once by chance.
Mystery volunteer at center of House race’s Khanna-GOP controversy
By Josh Richman
But Singh points to a prominent local Indo-American she says is behind the Joshi-Vanlandingham gambit: Romesh Japra, chairman of the Fremont Hindu Temple, where Joshi serves on the board. Japra is also a staunch Khanna supporter and a former family friend of Singh.
Japra and his wife, Sunita, have given $7,400 to Khanna’s campaign since 2011. Japra said Wednesday he’s not aware of Joshi’s personal political activity and doesn’t know how or why Vanlandingham became a candidate, but he acknowledged he’s doing “everything in my capacity” to help Khanna’s campaign.
Singh said she has seen Japra and Khanna together at various public and private events in recent months, and claims that at one point she heard Khanna supporters intended to run another Republican into the race.
Federal law prohibits tax-exempt nonprofits such as the temple from participating or intervening in political campaigns.
Japra’s e-mail invitation to the Feb. 23 fundraiser he hosted for Khanna carried the temple’s logo, a notification of the temple’s tax-exempt nonprofit status, and a footer saying the message came from the temple. Still, Japra insisted Wednesday that the invitation had been sent from his personal email.

Public documents released by the White House that detail Spinner’s emails to Department of Energy officials confirm this limited role.
