Tough Week for Sheldon Adelson

Tough Week for Sheldon Adelson Dear Sheldon Adelson seems to having a tough political week as his candidate for Virginia's Republican primary elections has been knocked out.

The publication Investors Business Daily reported that Tea Party challenger David Brat managed to defeat House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

The news publication printed a quote written by Union Gaming analyst Robert Shore:

"Cantor counted Sheldon Adelson, who publicly sank at least $10 million into Cantor-backed super-PACs through 2012, among his staunch backers."

Analysts predict that without Cantor, Adelson's anti-online gambling initiative could result in a change in odds for national online gaming legalization.

Adelson’s efforts to ban online gambling are still alive and well with the support of Senator Lindsey Graham who was victorious in South Carolina gaining a nomination on Tuesday.

In related news, Adelson's land based casino in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania has been fined for the fifth time for letting under-aged gamblers in the door.

The Las Vegas Sands Bethlehem has been fined a total of $385,000 for related incidences over the last five years.
  • I personally think that we give this poor excuse for a businessman too much credit for being able to keep online gambling from becoming the reality that it already is everywhere else besides most of the US. Tough week, he wouldn't know how to handle a tough week. These old white men with there outdated ideas need to be put out to pasture before some witch drops a house on them, ha ha ha. OK, I may have got a little excited, sorry, but I'm not taking it back....
