James O'Keefe: People Selling Free "Obama Phones" For Drugs, Cash

A whistleblower group called Project Veritas went undercover to expose federal waste. At the offices of a program called Lifeline, low income Americans can get free or deeply discounted cell phones. 

Bill O’Reilly spoke to the president of Project Veritas, James O’Keefe on Tuesday. O'Keefe explained that private phone companies are given corporate subsidies by the government, which enables them to participate in the program. "It’s intended to help poor people," O'Keefe said. "But what we found is that it in fact hurts poor people and it might even benefit wealthy individuals."

O'Keefe provided undercover video of an office in Philadelphia where a Lifeline worker did not seem to care whether or not the recipients of these cell phones sold them for heroine.
