Does This Video Show ‘Obamaphones’ Being Obtained Illegally?

An undercover video has been released showing vendors helping people obtain those Obamaphones you heard so much about during the Presidential Election.

What’s so alarming about the video is, even after saying they wanted to “sell them for drugs and other items,” they were still given to the people requesting them.

According to Fox News, the You Tube video was released by conservative activist James O’Keefe and his group Project Veritas. It is said to be undercover investigators visiting locations in Philadelphia to obtain the Obamaphones.
People who live on welfare and food stamps are the only people who are supposed to be able to obtain the phones, but the program is out of control. The cost of the program tripled to $2.2 billion in 2012 from $819 million in 2008, when cell phones were added.

Sen. David Vitter, R-La., has been critical of the phone hand-out program for some time now.

Vitter said, “The free government cell phones issue just keeps getting more outrageous, this phone program has expanded far beyond its original intent, and having Washington force people to pay for free cell phones for others is offensive enough, but the waste, fraud and abuse is beyond words.”
