James O’Keefe is back — this time targeting cellphone stores participating in the government program to offer free phones to low-income individuals — or "Obamaphones."

O’Keefe’s latest video features his investigators getting free phones from a store in Philadelphia, explicitly telling the employees that they planned to sell them for cash to buy designer handbags or heroin.

One employee responds, “Hey, I don’t judge.”

Another responds, “Just keep it to yourself.”

Another employee reminds an investigator that it’s illegal to sell the phone, but tells her to “plead the Fifth” if she is caught.
