Uh oh: Feds issue subpoenas in investigation of CoverOregon exchange

The incompetence may not just be outrageous, but actually criminal:

The federal criminal investigation of Oregon’s health insurance exchange took a step into public view Tuesday when the U.S. Attorney’s office issued broad subpoenas seeking information from Cover Oregon and the Oregon Health Authority.

While the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s interest in the exchange debacle had been previously reported, the legal demands dated May 13 indicate things may have moved beyond a preliminary inquiry to a full-blown investigation.

The investigation, led by federal prosecutors and the FBI, is seeking documents, memos, and emails between the two state entities that oversaw the botched health exchange with U.S. authorities in charge of dispensing federal money for the project.

Oregon has spent $250 million and three years on an ambitious IT project that failed to produce a fully functional exchange. Instead, what was produced was bug-ridden and largely unfinished, documents show.

Previously, the entire crazy-expensive soap opera as told by HotAir. We (and some of this is federal/our money) are almost $500 million in on this thing, and not a daggone person enrolled. It is a testament to how incompetent the Obamacare roll-out truly has been that $500 million on one state’s exchange is basically a footnote in the broader nationwide failure.

Still no ObamaCare enrollments through Oregon’s exchange
