Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson has given a $10 million donation to the Romeny Super Pac “restore our future” . He also stated back in may that he was “going to give one more small donation — you might not think it’s that small — to a super PAC and then if I give it will be to a C4.” Which most likely means Crossroads GPS , an offshoot of the Super Pac “American Crossroads”. Which uses the loophole of a 501c4 to anonymously collect huge donations- violating the intent if not the letter of both election laws and the Supreme Courts “Citizens United” decision.
Ah yes- american crossroads- Karly Rove and former mississippi governor Haley Barbour- among the tops in dirty politics.
Sheldon Adelson, who along with his wife gave $20 million to newt gingrich during the republican race. Sheldon Adelson, who back in March during a Forbes interview made the hypocritical statement: “I’m against very wealthy people attempting to or influencing elections, But as long as it’s doable I’m going to do it.”
Sheldon Adelson, the 8th richest man in the world, with a net worth of $25 Billion dollars. A man who was a lifelong democrat until he became very wealthy. Until he became threatened by unionized hotel employees in Vegas who wanted a living wage. ( I mean really- isn’t there a point when you have enough money- and don’t need to screw your employees just so you can have more?!)
Make no mistake. This election, from the republican standpoint, has nothing to do with america, or its citizens. It has everything to do with regaining power, and maintaining the wealth (and power) of the .1 %. (yes- that’s not a typo- the point one percent- the billionaires who all want to be number one, who don’t think they have enough, and who don’t realize that without the average american- the americans who work for them, make the products their corporations need, buy their corporations goods and services… they would have nothing.
