Sacramento Woman Says She's Selling Her House, But Not To a Trump Voter


A woman in Sacramento is selling her home – just not, apparently, to a Trump supporter.

CBS Sacramento reports:

The homeowner has a political preference in mind for the next owner of her house, which has been in her family for decades.

“She entertained people from all walks of life,” said the homeowner who asked we not use her name for fear of retaliation.

“I told her [the realtor] that I didn’t want her to sell it to a Trump supporter,” said the woman.

While it may seem like California is a fairly safe place to snub Trump voters, it’s probably not such a good business decision in Sacramento. CBS notes that a full 39 percent of the area’s voters voted for Trump.

The homeowner, though, says she doesn’t really care about the money.

“When you’re talking about principles and morals and ethics, it’s very, very deep,” she said.

A local attorney told CBS he doesn’t think that intentionally banning a Trump voter from buying the home is legal, but that there’s no law stopping a homeowner from discussing their preferences with their realtor.

However, the Fair Housing Act doesn’t list political party affiliation as one of its seven protected classes, which include race, religion, color, disability. National origin, sex and familial status, leaving how someone voted in a gray area when it comes to intentional discrimination.

Then again, if someone hates a person simply for how they voted in an election that much, it's pretty likely that any Trump voter wouldn't want to stroke her a check, anyway.

Have fun with your bigotry, lady.
