Obama Donors Get Obama Phone Kickbacks


RUSH: Do you remember that we had a sound bite from a woman in Cleveland last week who was there protesting Romney? We it ended up she was being paid. Do you remember this woman?

WOMAN: Obama!

REPORTER: You got an Obama phone?

WOMAN: (screaming) Yes! Everybody in Cleveland, low minorities, got Obama phone. Keep Obama in president, you know? He gave us a phone!

REPORTER: He gave you a phone?

WOMAN: He gonna do more!

REPORTER: How did he give you a phone?

WOMAN: You sign up. If you're... If you on food stamps, you on Social Security, you got low income, you disability...

REPORTER: Okay, what's wrong with Romney, again?

WOMAN: Romney, he sucks! Bad!

RUSH: I have a story here from the Washington Free Beacon dated today: "A wireless company profiting from the so-called 'Obama phone' giveaway program is run by a prominent Democratic donor whose wife has raised more than $1.5 million for the president since 2007. ... One of the major providers of the free cell phones -- 3.8 million subscribers as of late 2011 -- is Miami-based TracFone Wireless, a company whose president and CEO, Frederick 'F.J.' Pollak, has donated at least $156,500 to Democratic candidates and committees this cycle, including at least $50,000 to the Obama campaign.

"Pollak's wife, Abigail, is a campaign bundler for Obama who has raised more than $632,000 for the president this cycle, and more than $1.5 million since 2007. She has personally contributed more than $200,000 to Democratic candidates and committees since 2008. The Pollaks hosted Obama at their Miami Beach home in June for a $40,000-per-plate fundraising dinner, and hosted a similar event with Michelle Obama in July 2008." So the Obama phone program is administered and being profited off of by an Obama donor and his wife.
