TOLERANCE? Sacramento Woman Lists Home For Public Sale, Unless You Voted Trump
Umm… so liberals are doing this now:
A woman in Sacramento has listed her house for sale but stipulated to the realtor not to “sell it to a Trump supporter.” In a self-recorded video clip the homeowner gave CBS Sacramento news, she stares into the camera and ironically claims that the reason Trump supporters need not apply is that her mother, who purchased the home in the 1960s, “entertained people from all walks of life.” So, “people from all walks of life” apparently just means all people with liberal ideologies.
When CBS Sacramento interviewed Attorney Allen Sawyer about the legality of this request he stated it was “an unlawful contractual term that infringes the freedom of association and first amendment rights.”

“We can ask somebody how they voted, but they don’t have to tell us,” said realtor Elizabeth Weintraub.
She says the “no Trump supporter” request is a first for her.
According to the Fair Housing Act, political party affiliation doesn’t fall into one of the seven protected classes. They include race, religion, color, disability. National origin, sex and familial status.
“People have a right to believe what they want to believe and they shouldn’t be restricted from purchasing property based on that,” said Sawyer.
Despite the legal issues, certified appraiser Ryan Lundquist says the seller may be limiting the pool of potential buyers.
“39 percent of voters voted for Donald Trump in the Sacramento region. That’s an absolute fact,” said Lundquist.
To this homeowner, that may not matter. She says the point is more important than the money.
“When you’re talking about principals, morals, and ethics, it’s very very deep,” said the homeowner.
