Amazingly, I see no source for this alleged solicitation. You got one?

That's not paying...

If they give a $10 gift voucher and they use it to buy a $30 item, they're still making a profit on a sale they, otherwise, wouldn't have had...

...same as any other retailer that does the same thing...

I don't see anything showing this Craigslist post has anything to do with any Trump organization...Sounds to me like the same kind of advertising from people standing outside of football or baseball games selling shirts and other clothing...

Nevermind, I'll help you out.

This Craigslist ad offering to pay Trump supporters to go to his Florida rally is probably fake | Blogs

Craigslist Orlando has removed the so called ad.

Yah i'm pretty sure they arent this stupid to make a craigslist ad, Trump hires his paid actors much more quietly.

From Jimbo's link to the Orlando Weekly...

First off, there have been a tremendous amount of unverified claims from both the left and the right that supporters/protesters are being paid to show up to political events. These claims have been made since the beginning of the last election, since Donald Trump descended down his escalator, and not one instance has been proven.

Diversion? Anyone?

Now it's something about an event last June. Or something.

Anything to report on the pulled and discredited Craigslist ad?

yes they used a casting agency called The Extra Mile to pay extras to attend Donald Trump’s announcement. Here’s the highlights from the FEC doc:

http://eqs.fec.gov/eqsdocsMUR/17044405316.pdf

SUBJECT: The complaint alleged that the Committee paid actors to attend Trump’s candidacy announcement but failed to disclose payments to the actors or the companies that allegedly hired them, or to report a debt or obligations to Gotham, one of the companies involved with running the announcement event. Consequently, Gotham and Extra Mile, the other company allegedly involved with hiring the actors, may have made and Trump and the Committee may have accepted prohibited or excessive contributions. Trump was a 2016 candidate for United States President.

DISPOSITION: The Commission exercised its prosecutorial discretion and dismissed the allegation that the Committee failed to report debt to Gotham, in light of the relatively modest amount at issue. The Commission closed the file in connection with the remaining allegations.


We believe that the service at issue here — assembling a crowd of attendees for a candidacy announcement — provided a benefit to the Trump campaign…

In this matter, the available information indicates that the Committee, retained Gotham as an event consultant, and Gotham, in turn, subcontracted with Extra Mile to provide extra administrative support at Trump’s announcement, including the provision of at least some of the rally crowd.



Extra Mile issued a casting call e-mail for actors “to wear t-shirts and carry signs and help cheer [Trump] in support of his announcement” in exchange for a payment of S50.
