Donald Trump's online supporters who want to volunteer and make phone calls for his campaign in Ohio have to first sign a non-disclosure form, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The 2,271-word agreement demands volunteers won't compete against or say anything bad about Trump, his company, his family members or products — now and forever, according to the newspaper.
Earlier this year, volunteers for Trump in New York had to sign non-disclosure agreements in person before making phone calls at Trump Tower, but the Ohio pact covers volunteers even if they never meet a Trump family member or campaign staffer, attend a Trump rally, or step inside a Trump campaign office, the newspaper reports.
"It's not a typical procedure," Matt Moore, chairman of the GOP in South Carolina, tells the newspaper, adding, however: "We do at times require volunteers or volunteer leaders to sign agreements to that effect. With the hack at the DNC, we have stepped up our game considerably."
"Donald Trump supporters are very passionate. I don't imagine that it would discourage them, much if any at all," he said.
Trump Ohio campaign spokesman Seth Unger said it's all part of a "state-of-the-art campaign … that involves best-in-market volunteer platforms."
"And it is attracting thousands of volunteers who are tired of the same old Washington corruption and back room deals and are securing votes for a change in November," he tells the newspaper.
The campaign website for Democrat Hillary Clinton requires no agreement for online volunteers.
