Colorado Springs Apartment Manager Threatens to Raise Rent of Obama Voters

by Eliana Johnson

An apartment manager in Colorado Springs is threatening to raise the rent of tenants who voted to re-elect President Obama. According to ABC affiliate KRDO, the manager, John Obringer sent a letter to his tenants Wednesday regarding staff and maintenance issues, but it included a post script that read, “BTW: 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.” Obringer’s letter began by decrying the “stupidity” of an electorate that would back “the Obama-administration’s continued assault on small business.”
