If it had been a Democratic male staffer,
he would have been looking for a female roommate.....
Put an ad up on craigslist looking for a room to rent and you never know who’ll get back to you.
One young man got a response from a legislative staffer to a certain Republican Representative from Ohio.Subject: room From: [Redacted]

I am responding to your ad on the craiglist regarding a room to share.
I have a studio apartment in Falls Church (Oakwood Apartments), and need someone to help split the rent.
I’m looking for a friendly, responsible, non-smoking white male to share this very small one-room apartment. I hope you fit that description.
The sad thing is, there was never any reason for the guy to expose his biases so publicly — no sane black person would ever want to live in a studio in Falls Church with a Republican hill staffer.
And in Wonkettes' original article, it is intimated who the staffer works for.
