Roommate hunters on Craigslist must have thought they lucked out when they first spotted a September 24 posting about a shared space on Capitol Hill that seemed quite the steal: "$200 with some requirements," reads the post’s title. Unfortunately, those “requirements” are a tad, um, particular.
"Looking for stripper to split a small apartment with me. No smoking. No television," reads the terse posting in full.
