An Obamacare phone operator who had a conversation with Fox News host Sean Hannity lost her job on Thursday.
On Monday, the “Hannity” host called up the Affordable Care Act phone number provided by the federal government. Eventually, he was connected with Erling Davis, a phone operator working for a private contract company .
Hannity quizzed Davis about technical issues facing the government healthcare website and engaged in some small talk during their 10-minute conversation.
However, on Thursday Davis revealed that she was fired by her employer over the conversation. For his part, Hannity told listeners of his radio show that he will compensate Davis for a year’s salary tax free and try to help her find a new job.
“They fired me from my job,” Davis told Hannity while being interviewed on his radio program.
Editor’s note: They should put VP Joe Biden to work at the Obamacare call center. That would certainly provide some amusing conversation!
