Any oversight by Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight - www.ofheo.gov?

Now that taxpayers are about to pick up the tab on another megabillion dollar problem of the Bush Administration, I have some questions. Note: this commentary began its life just moments ago as a comment on Taxpayers picking up the tab again
--- Ever since I've known of this office, I've wondered if they have actually done any oversight of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
What do they do? And how'd Mike Connell get the job of running their website back in 1999? Does George W. Bush get some sort of inside information from this arrangement?
Connell has been Bush's IT guru for more than two decades now. It became a GovTech Solutions website after he created the company to launder NewMedia Communications as a 'non-partisan' company while he ran GeorgeWBush.com and RNC.org, and it still runs as a GovTech Solutions client today.
You can see some of the pages under development as google captured them using this link:
Google - "inurl:govtechsolutions.com"
You also can see that www.ofheo.gov runs from the IP address right next door to govtechsolutions.com on Smartechcorp's address space:
and they're all in the same block of IP address that runs Connell's technomania.com (though robtex has not apparently updated its cnet data lately)
Since taxpayers are now going to pick up the tab for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and we've been picking up the tab for OFHEO, I just wonder if there is any significance to the fact that we've also been paying Mike Connell's companies to do the web and database work that runs http://www.ofheo.gov?
What does OFHEO do, anyhow? Just wondering, ya know?
