    From the article:

    A top Obama administration official came under fire Tuesday after her congressional testimony conflicted with the account of a man at the center of the security breach.
    Marilyn Tavenner, administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, promised a Senate committee that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services had reached out to Tom Dougall, the South Carolina man whose private information was exposed on
    That’s not true, said Dougall, who spoke to Heritage following Tavenner’s testimony.
    Dougall has called HHS repeatedly since Friday. That’s when he learned his name, address and insurance eligibility had been released to a total stranger in North Carolina. Dougall used the problem-plagued in early October, but opted against signing up for insurance.
    At a hearing before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee this morning, Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) told Tavenner about Dougall’s experience and asked her why no one from HHS has contacted Dougall:
    Mr. Dougall has called [HHS] on several occasions but no one will call him back. Not a single person has taken the time, after having his information exposed, to even call Mr. Dougall back.
    But Tavenner protested, promising HHS had already called him:

    So she lied. So what? I'm sure Obama called her afterwards and said, "You're doing a heck of a job, Marilyn."
