Equifax Wins No-Bid Federal Contract

What th…?

Senators expressed bewilderment Wednesday that credit reporting company Equifax, under siege after a data breach affecting more than 145 million people, has received a $7.25 million contract with the IRS to provide taxpayer and personal identity verification services.

“Why in the world should you get a no-bid contract right now?” Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., asked former Equifax CEO Richard Smith at a Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee hearing.

Sasse’s indignation was soon topped by Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., who said, “You realize to many Americans right now, that looks like we’re giving Lindsay Lohan the keys to the mini-bar.”

In light of this news, I would suggest that Senator Kennedy update his cultural references.
