Former Pres. Clinton To Break Manchester Hyatt Boycott?

Former President Bill Clinton makes a lot of speeches and gets paid a lot of money to speak. This Sunday, he’s scheduled to speak before the International Franchise Association in San Diego, which just happens to be meeting at the Manchester Hyatt.

The Manchester Hyatt has been under a boycott ever since it was learned that Doug Manchester contributed $125,000 to the Yes on 8 campaign to strip thousands of Californians of the right to marry. Manchester owns the Manchester Grand Hyatt as well as the San Diego Marriott Hotel and Marina, which are also being boycotted.

Since when have the Clintons cared about anything BUT money. Since their time in office (just like all the others) they have become fabulously wealthy. Winning the White House is the next best thing to winning the Lottery.
