Those -- -- -- -- a company named Adam Miller Luka that sells well -- products out of Idaho is under siege because -- CEO donated a million dollars to super -- that supports Mitt Romney.
And that CEO frank -- -- being personally attacked as well he joins us now here in New York City.
So wanna get I want the folks that know how intense this became for -- -- a -- you're a big Obama fund raiser and I hope correct Romney -- I'm sorry Romney fund raiser.
And and the Romney campaign people reelection people got wind that you gave a million bucks -- -- pack.
So what -- they do.
Well on April 20 they published the list.
Eight individual supposedly with they said less than reputable records news to me.
I thought I had a good record but.
So to publish it where where is it understood on that area on a website keeping GOP honest dot com okay so it was on a democratic web -- was president Obama's.
President Obama's media -- President Obama reelection campaign -- see your name is in there and they're saying that you -- disreputable.
And -- you know and and they do this to me all time mr.
advances so don't feel that so they did list a whole bunch of things that they say that you did that -- wrong.
But you say look I'm just an honest businessman are now what happened -- business in lieu of that.
What -- well when I first saw the list I thought oh -- -- this is scary and within hours of that then all kinds of things started -- on the Internet.
Suggesting all kinds of accusations say against me -- rewriting history as it were about all kinds of things have supposedly guilty of and -- did it impact your business directly.
Will it did right away the first day phone calls started coming and we have.
Customers who say they want to cancel people who do because you were a mean guy you're rat they wanted to cancel because you just -- -- -- they read data on the net.
Well they they hit me first with that said that that I hated gay people and I was anti gay which -- and -- -- -- anybody who is buying your products were gay so I'm gonna buy products from this and we have a lot of people we work with the right deal with and -- -- -- -- They did okay.
So your response to the smear was to do what just this kind of publicity we know we wish we created a I started having conference calls with our customers I started to head to explaining my real positions and literal history when you have to do that retail -- -- -- -- to call your customers and distributors and tell them who you really -- sure.
We did and then we've put up a website of our own frankly -- understood response dot com.
To try to handle all of these accusations has it worked.
Today it did to a degree and did you agree to stop the bleeding somewhat what we lost a couple hundred customers so far and then we started getting that turned around and then.
Thankfully -- -- also from the Wall Street Journal did an article list last Friday and then everything's turning around now been hitting in the -- this address some -- use some believe this is economic terrorism and not economic political terrorist.
That did that.
Targeting -- a businessman like you running an honest business because of your freedom to donate who you want to donate to.
But try to rule when you personally and professionally.
That's terrorism political terrorism do you see it that when I have these two questions bill that two to.
Why did you publish a list.
Why but he doesn't know anything about not making excuses for his people I don't think -- -- micromanage as -- sure to put his people in charge to me he -- absolutely and he should fasten them then he's responsible for it because they did it under his -- -- absolutely.
Ask them why did you make a list of all the things you could be doing this it won't hurt you and intimidate others who would give to -- that's within the second question is.
Who's supposed to receive the message is it is it only the liberal press disposable after these folks.
Words and also the agency's that he runs like that he's in charge of a new report to him -- want to please him.
Well FTC the FDA and the US I think it might feel you may mean making more complicated than it is is the bottom line.
They want you to shut up and not give any money in -- gonna give another donation I understand the Romney campaign.
But they wanted to intimidate you from giving any money to campaign and others like you who might be -- amended to business people -- gonna do.
Because it put my name on web and I'll lose customers so much sort of it and that's what they're thin and that's terrorism in this winter I suppose it is this ever happen no president has ever done it before.
OK but I I -- idea I think he should be careful on this if I didn't -- ever get the chance to talk to Barack Obama I'm gonna bring up your case because you're actually right.
He should scrub that and take that off and he shouldn't do that but I don't know if he himself.
He himself in order to do what I have to be careful vision checked to restore our future I think the only responsible -- this.
I think the only response that is to make another donation I had thousand dollars.
And death I would like to -- everybody.
I mean if they weren't -- I don't suppose this is going to like reduce the attacks and all and I didn't celebrate them by -- -- -- stand -- guy like LeBron anyways you're being what they called Hawkeye and perhaps everybody else can -- in peace and that's how it should be in America.
Did not happen in America I -- mr.
Basil thanks coming in here.
