Manhunt.net co-founder Lawrence Basil makes TWO campaign contributions to Congresswomen Tsongas of Massachusetts

You would think the owners of manhunt.net, or incorporated name (Online Buddies, Inc.) would have learned from the controversy that surrounded the then CEO (Jonathan Crutchley) when he had made the maximum campaign contribution to Senator John McCain’s Presidential bid back in March 2008.

As a result of this controversy Jonathan Crutchley stepped down as CEO, but as you see in their corporate filings from last year (below), he is still the majority ruler at the company.

In an article posted on here on muckety.com co-founder Lawrence Basil was quoted then as saying “Boy, was I embarrassed when I found out he gave $2,300.”

I guess manhunt.net didn’t learn from that mistake. Why would a company with such a HUGE subscriber base, and with varying political views; dabble in politics. And shame on Congresswomen Tsongas for not doing the research to find out where here campaign contributions are coming from.

I do support and applaud Congresswomen Tsonga’s efforts in Congress revolving around gay marriage and repelling the “don’t ask don’t tell” policy.

But I would have to ask myself. If I were a Politician would I accept a donation from an owner of a Company that is pornographic in nature and contributing to a rise in HIV infections within the MSM community?

I will ask of her to return these funds back to the donor, and take a stance on irresponsible MSM social networking websites that are catalysts to unsafe sex practices, drugs, and other criminal behaviors.
