SEIU paid anti-Romney protesters $11/hour in Ohio

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.

The amateur filmmaker who shot the footage also has released video revealing that the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) paid protestors during a recent rally for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney .

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 into the suburb.
