'Exhausted' Obama Critic Laid Off

Velma Hart, the Maryland woman who told President Obama that she was “exhausted of defending you” and “deeply disappointed” at a September town hall, has lost her job. Hart worked as the CFO of Am Vets, a veterans services non-profit. Her layoff comes as the company tries to cut expenses. “It’s not anything she did,” said the group’s director. "She got bit by the same snake that has bit a lot of people. It was a move to cut our bottom line.”
