The “Obamaphone lady” gets another 15 minutes of fame

Who could forget the so-called “Obamaphone lady” who ranted “Everybody in Cleveland, low minorities, got Obama phone. Keep Obama in president, you know? He gave us a phone!”? 

It’s now been revealed that “The U.S. government spent about $2.2 billion last year to provide phones to low-income Americans, but a Wall Street Journal review of the program shows that a large number of those who received the phones haven’t proved they are eligible to receive them.” What a combination: government waste AND fraud!
