How many years in jail should this landlord get for strong-arming his tenants to vote for Trump?

“Please understand IF Joe Biden is elected as our next President, everything you do and have to pay for will change completely,” the letter declares, according to the news outlet. “Everything will be increased. Like paying ALOT (sic) more in taxes, utilities, gasoline, groceries, new permits, fees, and regulations…everything! This also means YOUR RENT will be increased to cover these expenses. Most likely, rent would DOUBLE in price!”

    He is guilty of extortion and should be prosecuted under the law. Shows the lengths Trumps “adoring fans” will go for him. It’s the win at any cost that the mafia uses when the are charged with crimes. In turn Trump is using his hoarde to blackmail Republican politicians, he hopes to get a legitimate election overturned with their forced help. You know what happens when you cross the boss.!

    Not actually illegal

    Just immoral, unethical and totally false

    A lot like Trumps presidency 

    Rent increases are not based on income taxes.. When income taxes are cut  local governments increase property taxes due to decreased revenue. It happened when Reagan, Bush and Trump cut taxes.

    While this is a jerk move, I don't think it rises to voter intimidation.  They're not threatening people with a rent increase if they don't vote for Trump.  They're saying that the economy will become terrible if Biden is elected and prices for everything, including rent, will rise.

    No years at all,it's very logical to increase rent if someone is going to raise your taxes.
