I love their use of the term “home sharing” here. Oh no, these aren’t illegal hotels or illegal rentals. . . no, this is HOME SHARING! Just like Uber, let’s go around the law so we can make money! In NYC Airbnb became irate because the Attorney General went after them for enabling apartment tenants to run illegal hotels. Now like their other sharing economy siblings they are seeking to get political. After all Uber hired former Obama for America ’08 campaign manager David Plouffe. So What politico is willing to shill for Airbnb I wonder.
