[Ed. – This isn’t coming from a rental agency or screening service; it’s from apartment owners or tenants seeking to rent out extra rooms.  They’re explicitly rejecting the woman over politics.  This is more about exposing their bias than about a basis for a discrimination suit.]

Pardes Seleh, a conservative who has worked at Fox News and is now a graduate student, shared an email today she received explaining why she was denied approval to rent an apartment in Washington, D.C.
