Billionaire Sheldon Adelson Says He Might Give $100M To Newt Gingrich Or Other Republican
Quote:So the criticisms that he’s trying to personally buy the presidential election for Newt Gingrich are met with a roll of the eyes. “Those people are either jealous or professional critics,” Adelson tells me during his first interview since he and his wife began funneling $11 million, with another $10 million injection widely expected, into the former speaker’s super PAC, Winning Our Future. “They like to trash other people. It’s unfair that I’ve been treated unfair—but it doesn’t stop me. I might give $10 million or $100 million to Gingrich.”
Quote:Is that fair? “I’m against very wealthy people attempting to or influencing elections,” he shrugs. “But as long as it’s doable I’m going to do it.

Those tens of millions of dollars were made on the backs of American suckers trying to beat the house. Why should he respect the American people? He just sees them as suckers pulling on a one armed bandit, a voting machine. The voting machine is just another gambling device to him and he wants to rig the game to favor the house.
