Obamacare navigator in Connecticut a convicted felon

By Jillian Kay Melchior | National Review Online

National Review Online has confirmed at least one instance where a convicted felon is working as an Obamacare navigator.

Late last year, Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius told Congress it was “possible” convicted felons could be working as navigators, prompting concerns about privacy and identity theft. (When navigators help sign people up for health coverage under Obamacare, they have access to confidential information including Social Security numbers, financial information, and health records.)

Open records obtained from Connecticut show that one navigator for that state’s exchange was allowed to work despite a Class B Felony conviction (Connecticut’s Class B Felonies are punishable by 1 to 20 years in prison).
