Video: Tea Party Victory Fund Airs Racist ‘Obamaphone’ Ad in Ohio

Last month, falsely reported that President Obama gave black people in Cleveland, Ohio free telephones, which were dubbed "Obamaphones."

The story started when a black woman was caught on video screaming: "Everybody in Cleveland, low minorities, got Obama phones…Keep Obama in president, you know! He gave us a phone, he’s gonna do more.”

In reality, there is a federal program which provides low-income people with free or reduced-cost cell phones.  The program began in 2008 under President George W. Bush, reports

Now, the unidentified black woman from the "Obamaphone" video is being featured an ad produced by the Tea Party Victory Fund. The ad also claims that Pres. Obama has "enslaved Americans."

Not surprisingly, the racially-tinged ad is running in predominantly white Ohio counties.
