This is the billionaire sugar daddy that the GOP clown car hopefuls have been sidling up to and thigh rubbing with .....
A judge in Las Vegas has ruled that a lawsuit involving accusations of graft and organised crime ties to casinos owned by the multibillionaire and Republican party funder, Sheldon Adelson, will be heard in the US.
The decision raises the prospect of Adelson facing difficult questions about his business practices following allegations by a former chief executive of his highly profitable casinos in the Chinese enclave of Macau that a well-known triad crime figure was used to bring in high-rolling gamblers and of influence peddling with Chinese officials.
The case potentially has implications for Adelson’s Las Vegas Sands casinos because evidence of ties to criminal organisations could cost them their gaming licences.
It could also have a bearing on the 81-year-old billionaire’s considerable political influence. He is estimated to have spent $150m in a failed bid to secure a Republican victory over Barack Obama in the last presidential election and is being vigorously courted by Republican candidates in the next race.http://thinkprogress.org/election/2015/04/24/3650498/gop-sheldon-adelson-primary/
Well ... The Gadfly cannot for the life of him understand why anyone would consider the Republican party the "Mafia" party when their most sought after benefactor is a Chinese mob boss. Sheesh!
Here's the list of the clowns in the GOP clown car who have been running to Sheldon Adelson and kissing his Omerta ring:
Sure .. there are some disgusting pieces of shit on the Dem donor side, no doubt, but nobody with the power clout and blank check capabilities of Adelson. Nobody.
If this is the criminal element guy that the Tea Party and their friends are counting on to gain them political power in this country, what does that say for their intentions?
Ask yourselves that dear readers.
