Those ‘ObamaPhones’ helping major Democrat-Obama donor TracFone profit nicely
Remember a few days ago when a loony Obama voter was screaming about those ‘free’ ObamaPhones? Well, they aren’t really free. The government has to buy the phones and minutes to give to these parasites which means our tax dollars are paying for these free ‘ObamaPhones.’ But guess which company is profiting from this ObamaPhones? It’s none other than a wireless company called ‘TracFone.’ The individual who runs TracFone just so happens to be a major Obama bundler. In fact, the head of the company has raised a whopping $1.5 million for Obama since 2007! Yet another, the media ignores this conflict of interest.
One of the major providers of the free cell phones—3.8 million subscribers as of late 2011—is Miami-based TracFone Wireless, a company whose president and CEO, Frederick “F.J.” Pollak, has donated at least $156,500 to Democratic candidates and committees this cycle, including at least $50,000 to the Obama campaign.
Pollak’s wife, Abigail, is a campaign bundler for Obama who has raised more than $632,000 for the president this cycle, and more than $1.5 million since 2007. She has personally contributed more than $200,000 to Democratic candidates and committees since 2008.
