The Democratic convention is a show. The show needed to look like a full room of happy unified Democrats.
How do you do that?
Step 1 – Get rid of the Bernie people
Step 2 – Fill the empty seats with paid seat fillers
Paid Seat Fillers were used to fill up empty seats left behind by Bernie Sanders supporters at the Democratic National Convention. A Craigslist ad was placed, looking for 700 people to be paid $50 a day, to fill empty seats.
