Sheldon Adelson Revels In Big Donor Role
Sheldon Adelson Revels In Big Donor Role

AIR DATE: September 27, 2012

Las Vegas Sands Chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson has quickly developed a reputation as the go-to guy for Republican finance directors. And, according to a new report on the Politico Web site, he is reveling in his new role. The site interviewed Adelson as part of its series on big donors, "The Billion Dollar Buy."

    I find it revealing that conservative big money donors are suspected and vilified by the media, while liberal donors just as big (and just as self-interested) are totally ignored. So, while I don't agree with all Mr. Adelson stands for, more power to him for putting his money where his mouth is. In America, *everyone* has the right to donate whatever they want to anyone they wish, and that is a good thing that we should all celebrate!
