Video of a Barack Obama supporter boasting that she would vote for the the president because he gave her a free “Obama phone” made headlines Thursday.
Now the amateur filmmaker whose shot that footage has released video revealing that the Service Employees International Union paid its members who bashed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney during a recent rally for the White House challenger.
Both videos were shot at a Romney rally in Bedford, Ohio on Wednesday, the filmmaker, who asked to be unnamed, told The Daily Caller.
In the video, protesters — chanting slogans like “Romney go home!” and “We don’t need no bad economy” — confirmed that SEIU organizers “are paying $11.00 an hour,” and that they had been bused in to the suburb.
Another SEIU member in the video explained that while some of them were paid, others were community activists.
