The Clinton Campaign Wants Your Couch: Seeking Housing for Supporters

     The Hillary Clinton campaign is looking for some Everyday Americans willing to open up their homes to strangers. On a webpage entitled "Host a Hillary for America Volunteer", the campaign asks for name, email address, phone number and home address for those willing to host a fellow Clinton supporter.
     The site asks, "Got a spare room (or couch!) that another supporter could sleep on for a few days? Sign up today and an organizer will be in touch."

     Those who sign up receive an email inviting them to become volunteers as well:

     There are no other details regarding how the arrangements are made, if any payment or reimbursement is involved, or how hosts and guests are vetted. An email to the campaign seeking comment was not immediately returned.
