#1 So the US Gov't money buys cell phones for the poor from Fred and Abigail Pollak's TracFone Wireless. Abigail then hosts fund raising dinners and sends laundered that money to Champs reelction campaign ? BTW, TracFone is a subsidiary of América Móvil, hense the "Nional Museum of the American Latino" connection.

#2 Sorry, I must've nodded off. Just how was my government authorized to hand out free phones?
Don't food stamps fit in a pay phone?

#3 Bobby, they hardly have pay phones anymore. Besides, even if they did, they wouldn't work in the neighborhoods where the free cell phone recipients live. And the recipients 'need' a phone so they can call 911 - and of course, so they can be called with job offers after their interviews, and for their self-esteem.
