Among the many revelations from the DNC email hack was the discovery that they have a pro-Hillary SuperPAC that pays young voters to push back against support for Bernie Sanders online, since Hillary failed miserably at garnering the youth vote this primary season.A photo alleging to show a Craigslist ad looking for people to fill empty seats at the DNC to give the appearance of higher attendance has gone viral throughout the Twittersphere, and considering the Democrat’s history of buying support, it didn’t come as a surprise to many. Here’s a photo below, courtesy of the Gateway Pundit:
Take this particular ad with a grain of salt however, as it was flagged and removed from Craigslist.
A Bernie delegate at the DNC however said that there are in fact seat fillers at the convention. According to him, this was done to create a false appearance of “unity.” Any Bernie supporters who left their seats, even if they were just going to the bathroom, weren’t allowed back to their seat – because it’ll be filled by a paid Hillary “supporter,” he speculated.
He was just basing this off of what he was seeing anecdotally, but in another video, a Bernie delegate interviews a man who admits to being a seat filler.
It’s no wonder they needed seat fillers – especially due to protest from Bernie Sanders supporters who are rightfully angered that the Primary was rigged against them. As Kevin Ryan at Unbiased America (full disclosure: I am also a UA contributor) reported: The second day of the convention, Tuesday, saw the biggest protest against Clinton and the DNC… inside the convention itself! Right after the final roll call of delegates was completed, with Bernie Sanders himself announcing the official nomination of Hillary Clinton, hundreds if not thousands of delegates staged a mass walkout, leaving the convention hall half empty. They walked to the DNC tent outside and shouted slogans including “Hell no, DNC! We won’t vote for Hillary!”
But if you watched the mainstream media’s coverage, you saw almost no mention of the walkout. NOTE: Watch this video to the end… It’s shocking the extent of the walkout, and how little attention the media gave it.
