Jeremy Peter Green hopes to make tens of thousands of dollars by selling something he bought for $8.

Jeremy Peter Green is hoping to make $90,000 by selling something he bought for $8.

He owns the domain name ClintonKaine.com, which he bought in 2011. Now that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has clinched the Democratic Party’s nomination and named Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine her pick for vice president, Green is hoping to turn a profit.

He tells CNN Money that he thought Kaine might become a running mate because President Barack Obama had sought out Kaine before choosing Vice President Joe Biden.

Green also bought ClintonBiden.com and ClintonBooker.com, lest Clinton go with Biden or New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker instead.

Green, who tells CNN he’s a socialist who initially supported Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders for president, has yet to hear from the Clinton campaign.

He currently uses all three Clinton domains to host an internet comic called “Hillary Potter” that he pens under the name Jeremy Pegg. The comic casts political figures as Harry Potter characters.

Comics are a hobby for Green, a 28-year-old lawyer who lives in Washington, D.C.

If he gets the $90,000 he wants for ClintonKaine.com, Green tells CNN that he wants to use it to build a solo legal practice.

It would not be the first domain he sold. Green describes himself as “political domain squatter” on his blog.

According to a July 12 blog post, he has sold two political domains for the 2016 election cycle so far, each for $1,500: Cruz2016.com and BidenWarren.com.

What do you think of the idea of political domain squatting as way to make extra money? Let us know by commenting below or over on our Facebook page.
