Businessman Says He Lost Hundreds of Customers After Attacks by Obama Campaign
Obama's enemies list is working
Businessman Frank Vandersloot, the CEO of Melaleuca, has been targeted by the Obama campaign after donating money to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign. "Three weeks ago, an Obama campaign website, 'Keeping GOP Honest,' took the extraordinary step of publicly naming and assailing eight private citizens backing Mr. Romney," Kim Strassel of the Wall Street Journal reported.
Titled 'Behind the curtain: a brief history of Romney's donors,' the post accused the eight of being 'wealthy individuals with less-than-reputable records.' Mr. VanderSloot was one of the eight, smeared particularly as being 'litigious, combative and a bitter foe of the gay rights movement.'"
The attacks are working. Vandersloot revealed in an interview on Fox News that his business practice is being hurt by the attacks from the Obama team.
"Those people that I know well weren't affected by this [attack]," said Vandersloot. "But for people who didn't know me, who are members of our business or customers, and they were reading this, then we got a barrage of phone calls of people cancelling their customer memberships with us."

Wow, if there ever was a need for yet another reason to get rid of Obama, this supplies it.
Obama- Killing American jobs one day at a time.
I don’t believe it. Check out His web site, why would people who buy His products care who He contributes to?
But it would be a clever way to drive people to your site by claiming zer0s people are attacking you and for that move I give Him kudos.
zer0 does not have that many “people” and the people who He has are just angry nobodies .
Rush Limbaugh aired this about Vandersloot yesterday. He must’ve thought it was real.
Adolf Hitler is alive and well in the evil mind and body of Barack “hate & destroy America” Hussein Obama!!! America, wake up, your time in freedom & liberty diminishes every day this tyrant, Obama remains in office. Orwell’s “1984” has arrived!!! Big Brother Obama is really, Big Brother Dictator!!!
That’s a fasscist tactic Hitler used ...until “The Night Of The Long Knives”
Well, this is what he said.You think he is not telling the truth?
“Three weeks ago, an Obama campaign website, ‘Keeping GOP Honest,’ took the extraordinary step of publicly naming and assailing eight private citizens backing Mr. Romney,”
Doesn’t have that many “people”? Have you been asleep for the last three years?
Boy are you naive.
The man IS the enemy of the state.
Just looked at their web site and it looks to be another Amway, just with a “green” angle.
Read some of the complaints on anti- site and they don’t sound political, rather more like issues I would have if I found out I HAD to buy a certain amount monthly or be billed anyway.
I think you may be right about the free advertising.
Shortly after the feds took over GM, a lot of Dealers who had donated to conservatives had their stores taken.
The odd thing is they were making a profit. Their inventory was given over to “progressive” owners.
There are quite a few other articles as well about VanderSloot which appear to cite facts using publicly available information. I don't think VanderSloot is a naive businessman who made a big donation to conservative causes and then got slammed for doing so.
If the claims in this article are true, he's a wealthy supporter of Mitt Romney who succeeded in business using some pretty aggressive tactics which he then applied to his critics in politics, and is now getting the same kind of scrutiny applied to him by liberals that we as conservatives would give to a wealthy supporter of Barack Obama.
For whatever it's worth, while I don't like his support of Mitt Romney one bit, it certainly looks like he's done a lot of good for the opponents of gay marriage. I have no agenda against VanderSloot — I just wish he'd stick to fighting gay marriage and wasn't a Romney supporter.
The truth will come out sooner or later. If all VanderSloot did was make threats against “little guys” who were mad about his big donations, he's now playing in the big leagues and has found out that both sides fight hard. Money can buy lots of things, but it can't buy freedom from critics — and shouldn't.
