What a message that arrived at MHProNews HQ
It said this.
“Tony [MHProNews’ publisher], I’m wondering if you missed it. You’ve [MHProNews] done articles lately on billionaires, Democrats, and of course on MHI [Manufactured Housing Institute]. I’m conservative [said the message], but my colleagues and I give to Democrats. We are members of MHI too. Think of Democrats and MHI as protection rackets. That’s the bottom line.”
Wow. And ouch.
Sources in California have pointed to something similar.
Per those sources, manufactured home industry professionals are giving to Democratic candidates there, not because they necessarily believe in them or their policies. Rather, it is because they want access, after an election.

Publisher L. A. ‘Tony’ Kovach said, “We value feedback, input, and news-tips – especially those tips that come with documentation or evidence of a claim. That said, while we [MHProNews] could have expressed it differently, MHProNews has published similar points to those of the professional who sent the message. Nevertheless, it is a useful insight – and appreciated – as it underscores concerns we’ve been publishing, and gives us an opportunity to clarify the concerns that pro raised.”
There are certainly various reasons why some company or person gives to a certain PAC, and/or candidates. The following graphic is from NBC News.
For example, MarketWatch did a run-down of how certain CEOs – including Warren Buffett – have used their campaign donations, to support candidates from this or that – or both – political parties.
As MHProNews revealed recently, resident community group members often mistakenly believe that Democrats are the party of and for the poor. But the data reflects what is shown on this page, and from the linked related reports. Democrats have become the party of big money. They are also often the party of purported monopolistic ‘moat builders.’
As MHProNews exclusively reported, key MHI members have backed Democrats in opposition to candidates that carried water for MHI on Preserving Access to Manufactured Housing.
