Guy Who's Building America's Versailles Says: Obama's Hurting My Business!

David Siegel, the time-share king whose unfinished 90,000 square foot house was featured in the movie, The Queen of Versailles, has a warning for his employees:

David Siegel, who owns Florida-based Westgate Resorts, sent an email to all his employees yesterday to discuss the upcoming election. “The economy doesn’t currently pose a threat to your job,” Siegel wrote, noting that the company is “the most profitable [it's] ever been.” “What does threaten your job however, is another 4 years of the same Presidential administration.” He went on to say that although he “can’t tell you whom to vote for,” if Obama is re-elected, it would mean “fewer jobs, less benefits and certainly less opportunity for everyone.”

The hard sell may move time-share units, but it may not be the right approach for winning votes.
