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.

Bonehead.

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.

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.
