Not only was the Obamacare website born out of  a no-bid contract -- a practice candidate Obama promised would never happen under his watch -- but now the WashingtonExaminer reports that executives working for the firm behind the dysfunctional Obamacare website enjoyed numerous private engagements with "high-level" White House staffers:

Prior to the official award, senior CGI executives met with top White House officials and attended a number of invitation-only addresses by President Obama.

According to the logs, CGI Federal President Donna Ryan visited the White House six times prior to her company being selected to do the IT design work behind the high-profile website.

Two of the meetings attended by CGI executives were with Vivek Kundra, Obama's chief information officer. Kundra was a key figure in Obama administration information technology initiatives across the government.
