Apparently Manhunt's been hit in the purse.. I recieved several emails today from people who have asked to have their Manhunt accounts closed. They have received the following response from Manhunt.

Dear Member,

Thank you for contacting MANHUNT Customer Service.

Thank you for taking the time to express your concerns as we are always
happy to hear from our members.

Manhunt as a company has not and does not support any political
candidate in this or any previous election.

A statement from the founder and majority shareholder of MANHUNT
follows.

Sincerely,
Ryan
Manhunt Customer Service


STATEMENT FROM LARRY BASILE, FOUNDER AND MAJOR SHAREHOLDER OF MANHUNT

There has been a depiction this week of MANHUNT being Republican.

All my life, I have never voted to the right, and have always been
generous to 20th Century Democrats, Gay and Lesbian Advocates and
Defenders, HRC, and the NGLTF.

I was arrested at the Supreme Court and FDA in Act-Up actions, and was
the founder of the Grass Roots Gay Rights Fund, which over the years has
raised more than $800K.

I was the Treasurer of Out Week magazine, which was a powerful force in
its time.

I began giving Obama donations in March 2007, and I have sent several
checks that have yet to be reported. The hat and t-shirt I wear say
"Obama for President", as does the sign in front of my house. I refuse
to live in a country that is so marred by war and hate. To me, Barack
is by far the best candidate, probably better than we deserve.

It should be known that Jonathan Crutchley's donation to McCain left the
entire Board in disbelief.

I am disappointed that we have lost some customers, and I understand the
anger. It is too bad for the web site if we lose customers, but PLEASE
never refer to me as a Republican. I consider it an offense.

At the request of the Board, Jonathan has stepped down as Chairman.

Sincerely,
Larry Basile
