Some Republican voters may find themselves wondering about the intent of an Associated Press article drawing attention to serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer’s former home being up for rent in Cleveland in the run up to the Republican National Convention being held in the city this summer.
From the AP article, which was carried by CBS News:
The former Bath Township home of Jeffrey Dahmer is one of several private properties that real estate company Howard Hanna has made available for rent while the convention is underway in Cleveland in July.
The three-bedroom home about 25 miles south of Cleveland costs $8,000 to rent for the week. It’s the site of Dahmer’s first murder in 1978.
Dahmer, then just 18, killed a hitchhiker and disposed of his remains in the woods behind the property. He murdered 16 more victims and was killed in prison in 1994.

Homeowner Chris Butler is quoted in the article saying he put up the listing on a whim to “suck some Republican gelt from those people.”
While some social media users approached the story with humor, others found it to be “inappropriate.” Whether intended or not, the article certainly prompted a rash on anti-Republican sentiments.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:

@CBSNews Is that Dahmer? Gawd, who would want to rent that house? Celebration of Evil-Incarnate. Am I going crazy? Or are the Republicans?
