Obamacare event hands out condoms as 'prize' at Arkansas university? (updated)

Author's note: This post has been updated. Scroll down!

Students at the University of Central Arkansas were reportedly rewarded with condoms last weekend for attending an Obamacare "training event" with young Democrats.

According to the Weekly Standard, the event was hosted by Living Affected Corporation, a non-profit group focused on promoting "empowerment and inclusion while decreasing health disparities through education and advocacy in marginalized communities."  LACorp received a special grant from the federal government for promoting public education on Obamacare, Daniel Harper notes.

It's unclear how much of that taxpayer-funded grant money went to pay for free condoms:

The event organizer spilled out a bag of condoms -- as a couple whoops and hollers could be heard from the small crowd.

Then she says, "Ok, if anyone wants a paper application," but she interrupts herself to pickup condoms that had fallen on the floor. "I have those as well."

"So when you're leaving, you can stop by my table and I'll give you whatever -- condoms -- that box has a bunch in it. Anyway ... Our corporation, LA Corp ... And I'm waiting on my dental dams and female condom order that still hasn't come in. If you ever need condoms, let me know because we have thousands -- boxes of magnums, we get magnums a lot. So here is the prize table."

Update: Diedra Levi, CEO of the Living Affected Corporation told TheBlaze that her group did hand out condoms at the event, but not as "prizes" related to Obamacare. Oliver has the dirty details here.
