Marin Austin wrote about a company that provides concerned citizens on demand:

  • “Crowds on Demand” is a company that provides crowds for political events.
  • The owner of the company says he has 20,000 actors who can show up and cheer on a candidate.
  • The actors are paid between $50 and $100 for a few hours’ work.
  • Sometimes the actors will also be prepped with fake biographies which they use when asking the candidates scripted questions.
  • The company claims that some 2016 Presidential Candidates have hired the company.
