• Whistleblower Exposes Waste In Social Security System

    Last December, former Social Security’s Associate Commissioner for Facilities and Supply Management Michael James Keegan told Fox News that senior officials at the Social Security Administration (SSA) hid a damning report that revealed a $300 million computer system lawmakers described as a “boondoggle” in order to “protect President Obama’s nominee to lead the agency.”

    Now, Mr. Keegan is back. This time appearing before a Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, Mr. Keegan accused his former colleagues of committing fraud with tax payer money.

    “The case to replace the existing National Computing Center (NCC) was ‘overstated,'” Keegan testified Monday, “and relied too heavily on the premise that the NCC was in ‘terrible condition’ and could no longer support the agency mission.”

    Keegan continued to testify and discussed how he was told to keep quite about the corruption he said he was witnessing:

    On April 26, 2014 I was called by [my supervisor] and he instructed me as follows:

    * I am to “forget” the issues that I brought to his attention.

    * That “he” will handle this with no specifics what that meant.

    * That I will no longer be required at the quarterly Congressional staff briefings before the House Ways & Means Committee, Subcommittee on Social Security.

    Watch Keegan’s testimony in the video above.

    Hopefully whistleblower Michael Keegan’s testimony will lead to people being fired and the corruption being cleaned up in the social security office. But don’t hold your breath.
