Hillary to Donors: Can My Staffers Crash On Your Couch?

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]One would think that with all the cash the Clinton’s have been pocketing over the years, Hillary might be able to spring for some decent digs for her band of dogmatic followers.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Still, in keeping with the liberal mantra, the presidential candidate has asked that citizens “give a little more” and pitch in to help her win by opening their homes to total strangers, her staff, who are in need of a place to crash.

“Do you have a spare room – or just a spare couch! – where a new staffer could stay?” asked Marlon Marshall, director of State Campaigns and Political Engagement at Hillary for America in an email to supporters.


Marshall stressed that staffers in New York need to start “right away” and noted, “You and I both know that finding a place to live in New York can take longer than an afternoon of apartment hunting.”


He claimed that those who would be crashing on couches would “be working long days, so they really just need a place to sleep, and they’ll be so grateful to be staying with someone who shares their beliefs and their goals.”

Though hospitality and political advocacy are wonderful things, Democrats have, in recent years, taken the concepts to the limit by constantly asking citizens to sign birthday cards (and donate) for the Obamas and to dutifully carry their messages to dinner tables, family outings, holiday get-togethers and a variety of places that should be sheltered from an obnoxious advancement of a political agenda.

Is this what has become of politics? Those seeking higher office no longer ask for our vote and, if possible, some volunteer hours, but our home, our money and our family time?

Further, what does this move say about Hillary’s governing style? Though she has a substantial campaign war chest, her position at this early stage in the game is that others should be pitching in to house her staffers for free?

Then again, this is the same woman who believes she is impoverished.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
