Obamacare ‘navigator’ in Kansas has outstanding arrest warrant

A woman with an outstanding warrant for her arrest is currently serving as an Obamacare “navigator” in Lawrence, Kansas.

...
The Obamacare navigator program has fallen under heavy criticism for its privacy pitfalls, with the House Oversight Committee issuing a report only two weeks ago which warned that navigators would not be properly vetted to protect consumers.

...
The Obama administration’s decision not to require background checks for navigators compounds the privacy risks, the Oversight Committee wrote.

“In part, substantial risks remain because the Administration decided not to require background checks and fingerprinting of individuals hired by Navigator and Assister organizations,” the committee wrote. “Under the Administration’s plan, unless states have already taken actions to protect their citizens, Navigators and Assisters are not prohibited from hiring convicted felons, including individuals convicted of identity theft or fraud.”


It seems as though regular citizens receive more scrutiny than these people who work for Obama.

Not only are their IT security risks, but there are also personnel security risks.

I don't see this as a huge problem, (yet). Certainly this woman needs to take care of her financial issues. As long as she isn't involved in identity theft, then she should have a chance to work. What is more troubling is that there is an apparent conflict of interest between her role as an outreach director for a local health center and her navigator duties, especially since she is the only navigator in her city.

Not vetting someone who has access to people's personal information? You're asking for trouble.

Of course, the media not vetting candidate Obama's personal information is the reason we're in this mess, so I see the irony.

Most of the hundreds of people I arrested over my career as a Corporate Investigator had criminal financial issues

Some one with the same first and last name has an arrest warrent that lives in a different county. She also bounced a check that was filed, nothing more then that. Wow, hurricane in a tea pot.

Seriously, people's lives don't end if they do something wrong...or some one with the same name has an outstanding warrent nearby. Who knows what happened as well. I got a civil complaint filed for a bounced check, it was a forgery and the business never contacted me or my bank. I wrote a single letter and it was dropped. Some one seeing my name with "worthless check" next to it, like the Daily Caller's only evidence, would show I'm passing bad checks as well.

As a bigger issue, what are people supposed to do if they do something wrong? If they have a civil or criminal complaint, no matter how small, should it end their lives completely? Be barred from working or living anywhere? How are people supposed to help themselves if they are barred fro it by big government zealots looking to criminalize even the smallest things?

It doesn't really matter. She can advise people how ever she wants and none of it matters when the system doesn't work anyway.

So these are the people who ask for all kinds of information from potential buyers, including SS numbers?

I have to say anyone who would give their SS number on a phone call or the internet pretty much deserves it.

Psssssssstttttttttttt: Writing hot checks is a criminal act. It wasn't a small thing to the person to whom she wrote the check. It came out of their pocket.

How is that so hard to understand? It's theft! Pure and simple.

I bet there are organizations set up by Team Obama to steal the money once they get the personal info.
