Adelson Lavishing Casino Money On GOP Super PACs

Imagine the outrage if Richard Nixon or Bill Clinton received a $10 million campaign donation from the owner of a Macau casino that was under investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice for possible violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

There would be calls for impeachment, and an independent prosecutor, and demands that the campaign give the money back.

But that was then and this is now. Billionaire casino operator Sheldon Adelson may end up giving $70 million or more to super PACs and shadow super PACs with ties to Mitt Romney, House Republicans and other federal candidates this year, and no one seems to give a damn.
