Sheldon Adelson Is Throwing the Republicans Another $35 Million
By Caroline Bankoff

Conservative casino magnate Sheldon Adelson has reportedly pledged a total of $35 million to three conservative nonprofits: the Karl Rove-linked Crossroads GPS, an unspecified group with ties to the Koch brothers, and a third affiliated with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. This is in addition to the $10 million he gave to pro-Romney super PAC Restoring Our Future last week, which brings the amount he's contributed this election cycle to around $71 million (a significant portion of which was blown on Newt Gingrich.) And he's not likely to close the checkbook anytime soon: Sources say he's ready to commit $100 million to right-wing causes and candidates this year, which is something he could do every year for two hundred-fifty years before he ran out of money.

>Activates DUmmie mode< Those are, like, Progressives, man! They're on the right side of history! It's okay when a a humanitarian like George Soros or Bill Maher throws money at a cause, because even though their personal and professional conduct causes untold misery, their money is helping the poor, the downtrodden, the powerless, by empowering government to create more poor, downtrodden and powerless, thus increasing solidarity. >End DUmmie mode<
