A Democratic National Committee field director has been fired after her suspicious actions were caught on camera.
Conservative group Project Veritas said they sent an undercover reporter pretending to be registered in both Texas and Florida to the Houston headquarters of Organizing for America.
In the video, the woman asks the regional field director, Stephanie Caballero, how to cast ballots in both states to help President Barack Obama.
Hours after the video was posted online by the group, Caballero was fired by the DNC.
"There is obviously a history here of making selective use of taped material, and we will certainly not vouch for the completeness of what was released. However, what we saw was enough for us to take the action that we did," said Melanie Roussell with the DNC.
The news comes as a blow to supporters of the president who went to the Houston OFA office Friday and found it locked up and no one inside.
"I'm disappointed we're not working. I want to be working for the campaign. I want it to get started again," said Susan Wegner, who volunteers with OFA.
