Busted! “Actors Needed” to Fill Democratic National Convention Posted on Craigslist

The final two days of the Democratic National Convention might be filled with actors hired via a Craigslist listing to give viewers the appearance of party unity. Upwards of 700 paid actors could be replacing a significant number of Bernie Sanders supporters who had their convention credentials revoked after they staged a walk out as former President Bill Clinton took the stage to speak on behalf of his wife.

The pressing question: Was this posted by the DNC? We can’t say for sure.

The ad, which offers to pay “$50.00 each night” per actor for “the remainder of the convention” on Wednesday and Thursday night, was quickly taken down when People’s Pundit Daily requested a comment. However, we were still able to grab a screenshot from the web archive (H/T Google Wayback). The DNC apparently hasn’t yet learned that what goes out on the Internet (emails included) are never truly “gone” when deleted.

On Tuesday, People’s Pundit Daily confirmed and reported that during the negotiations between the Sanders and DNC-Clinton camps, the DNC wanted assistance in identifying supporters of the socialist senator who may repeat the embarrassments from Monday night on Wednesday and Thursday, when big names like Joe Biden, Barack Obama and ultimately Hillary Clinton take the stage.

Craigslist ads offered $50.00 to actors to fill the "National Convention" during the final two days of the Democratic National Convention at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

The convention began to fall apart after the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks released roughly 20,000 DNC emails exposing corruption and a pro-Clinton bias against Sen. Sanders. The leak led to the ousting of DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, who was replaced by someone (Donna Brazile) who called the Vermont senator “stupid.” Now, with large anti-Hillary protests building still outside the convention, they have potentially been forced to hire “rent-a-crowds” to give off the appearance of party unity.

        I followed the link to it. It was “real”. Again, I don’t know if it was an attention seeker, but it was real.

      I think the ad is authentic. But it could be some crack pot who did it. You need to authenticate the source not the content, per se…if it’s a prank, it’s a pretty damn good one!

    The DNC and the Democratic party now stands for what? They champion individual rights and free speech, but rig their elections and when caught stifle all dissent and protests for same. The media is complicit in this as they not once showed or allowed any time to any of the protests. They attempted to gag their own party members, Pay to Play is their new motto…..

    Trouble is that you need more proof. Anyone can post on Craigslist. Fifty bucks a night is not much which means they’d get a bunch of crack heads in there and I don’t believe they’d let in unscreened people. if they did they’d run the risk of some RNC whistleblower dishing the dthe dirt; too Many would talk. That’s the proof you need, someone who was hired. This CL listing was flagged…google it, you’ll see. For the record, i think the DNC is slimey enuff 2 do this but….IDK.

      Doubt that they hired actors for the DNC? All anyone has to do is look at the CSPAN videos of Clinton’s rallies.. to see that they were virtually empty. The news cameras NEVER pan to the crowds.. because there IS no crowd.. except the cheerleaders for hire’, ever present on bleachers behind Clinton..Giving a whole new meaning to the expression: “Sellout Crowds’..
