Last week, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas video busted Enroll America’s Communications Director, Christopher Tarango, for conspiring to release private data for political purposes. The Gateway Pundit also revealed that Tarango was the OFA-El Paso Regional Field Director in 2012. Soon after the video was released, a complaint was filed with the IRS by the group “Cause of Action” claiming Enroll America is abusing its tax exempt status and engaging in political activity.
Now, Christopher Tarango has resigned from his position as communication director.
Fox News reported:
The Texas communications director for Enroll America has resigned after a conservative watchdog group posted a video of him discussing his Democratic leanings.
A spokesman for the self-proclaimed non-profit, non-partisan group, which is leading efforts to enroll Americans in ObamaCare, confirmed to FoxNews.com Chris Tarango has resigned after the video by Project Veritas was posted online.
In the video, Tarango tells an actor posing as a Democratic operative that he is helping out with a Texas House race on the side, “so that’s about as partisan as it gets.” He says that many people who worked for Organizing for America, the grassroots arm of Obama for America during the 2012 campaign, ended up working for Enroll America.
“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,” Tarango said.
