Obviously less than pocket change for him. But it's still so fucking stupid. I just don't get it.

I still respect him, but, I mean, it will CRATER his credibility he has worked YEARS to build among the Green Left.

If he has a special relationship with a given member, who hears him out and this is the price, that's one thing. But the PAC spends its money at its discretion. This is a pro-GOP majority contribution, period.

No worse than Soros, or Steyer spending their money where they want.

You might think it's bad for his business, but only a few ultra anal people will care...

If a business owner is seeking preferential treatment in the form of tax policy or subsidies, then it only makes sense to pander to the party in power.

I'm neither a fan nor a detractor of Musk in particular, but this is just common sense reality.

If this is true then Elon has greatly disappointed me. He may be succumbing to the great man complex, he sounds like he believes his own press.

Meh. Liberal billionaires can pull the GOP away from the brink.

Not a fan of PACs, me, but Musk's donations seem no more worrisome than the next 0.01%-er's.
