BREAKING: Romney campaign may be paying fake “supporters”

Talk about Astroturf.

According to this video, the Romney campaign may (and I stress MAY as this has not been independently verified) be paying fake supporters.

The video shows a Gingrich supporter and a Paul supporter admitting they are being paid by the Romney campaign to hold up campaign signs on a street corner.

The man guesses the campaign found them through unemployment records.

I don’t know if this is real, but it should be investigated and while there’s technically nothing illegal about it, it lends credence to the phoniness of the Romney campaign.
