CEO David Siegel tells employees to defeat Obama, or else
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Surprise. David Siegel, the resort CEO who is building the biggest private home in the country, really, really doesn’t like President Obama.
And while Siegel hasn’t sent any money to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, he has gone a step farther to support him.
On Monday he sent an e-mail to all 7,000 employees of privately-held Westgate Resorts, many of them in the battleground state of Florida, warning them their jobs are at risk if the president is re-elected.
“The economy doesn’t currently pose a threat to your job. What does threaten your job however, is another 4 years of the same Presidential administration,” he said in the e-mail.
Who exactly is David Siegel? It turns out he is the same man featured in a recent documentary called The Queen of Versailles, which also features his wife, Jackie Siegel.
Here’s the trailer for that:
If this doesn’t rouse your inner Jacobin, then you should check your pulse.
