Landlord Threatens to Raise Rent on Obama Supporters

John Obringer, landlord of Casa Adobe Apartments in Colorado Springs, Colo., issued a letter to his tenants on Nov. 27 threatening to raise rents for tenants who voted for President Barack Obama, the Huffington Post reports.

The letter rages on about the Obama administration’s “continued assault on small business” that is “resulting in increased taxes, regulations and mandates.” Obringer claims he’ll have to resort to layoffs, pay cuts and shorter business hours to survive.

“If you voted ‘Democrat’ on Nov. 6, please notify me ASAP so I can raise your rent first to help pay for what you asked for,” he says in the post script.
