Leaders with Ginni Thomas: CEO Frank VanderSloot

Ginni Thomas | Contributor

Frank VanderSloot is the chief executive officer of Melaleuca, one of the 500 fastest growing, privately held firms in the United States, according to Inc. magazine.

He has also become a target of President Obama’s reelection campaign.

After donating $1 million to a Mitt Romney-aligned super PAC, the Obama campaign listed VanderSloot, who is also a national finance co-chair of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, as one of eight “wealthy individuals with less than reputable records” on its campaign website.

The eight wealthy Romney supporters were attacked by Team Obama for either being on the “wrong side of the law,” making “profits at the expense of so many Americans” or “donating to help ensure Romney puts beneficial policies in place for them.”

After being thrust into the spotlight by the Obama campaign, VanderSloot says he was subjected to threats and intimidation. But he isn’t backing away from his support of Romney. In a recent interview with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas, VanderSloot discusses the role of money in politics, the Obama campaign’s attack on him, the state of public discourse in America and much more.
