You know that one guy who successfully signed up for Obamacare? He didnít

TND Guest Contributor: Eric Boehm | PA Independent |

Chad Henderson was all over the news the past two days.

The 21-year-old student from Georgia was cited in multiple articles as being one of the few, the proud, the successful to signed up for insurance through a federal exchange.

On his Facebook page, Henderson bragged about being interviewed by ďThe Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Chattanooga Times Free Press, The Huffington Post, Enroll America, and Politico,Ē along with several local TV affiliates.

His story supposedly was proof that for all their glitches and problems Ė and the ambivalence of young people Ė the new health insurance exchanges were working after all.

Except it seems like it was all a lie.

Peter Suderman, writing at Reason, claims to have uncovered the truth.

ďBut in an exclusive phone interview this morning with Reason, Chad fatherís Bill contradicted virtually every major detail of the story the media canít get enough of,Ē Suderman writes. ďWhatís more, some of the details that Chad has released are also at odds with published rate schedules and how Obamacare officials say the enrollment system works.Ē

Suderman tracked down Bill Henderson through Chad Hendersonís Facebook page. And via the sonís LinkedIn account, he found this little nugget:

ďHe was a volunteer with President Obamaís campaign last year, and his LinkedIn page still lists him as an active volunteer with Organizing for Action, the former campaign organization which now advocates for the presidentís legislative agenda.Ē

Chad Henderson didnít really lie about his intentions. He told several media outlets that he was sharing his story because he wanted the new health care law to succeed. It just seems that no one at the posts Ė Washington and Huffington Ė decided to fact check his story.

The whole thing seems to have been set-up in advance. As Sarah Kliff of the Washington Post notes, she was given Hendersonís contact information Tuesday morning just moments after writing a blog post ďabout the lack of information on Obamacare enrollees.Ē

Who passed Hendersonís contact information to Kliff? Enroll America, the pro-Obamacare nonprofit run by a former communications director for the Obama campaign.

Hmm, didnít Henderson work for that same campaign? Surely, just a coincidence.

UPDATE: Kliff got Henderson on the phone again (he did not respond to a Facebook message from this reporter) and he admits that he did not complete the enrollment process, but argues that he was not lying when he said he did. She does not appear to have asked about his connections to the Obama campaign and Enroll America.
