WASHINGTON, Oct. 9 (UPI) -- A Democratic congressman had fun on Thursday with the GOP's current battle over the speaker of the House job by posting a fake Craigslist ad.
Rep. Mark Takano, D-Calif., and his staff made up a phony Craigslist job ad for the speaker of the House position being vacated by Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, and posted it on Takano's Facebook and Twitter pages.
"Are you an American citizen?" the listing read. "Do you have experience negotiating hostage situations? Are you ready for the challenge of a lifetime? Then this job is for you!"
Takano's staff took a screenshot of the preview of the ad on Craigslist, but didn't actually post it.
