Sheldon Adelson Pushing Real Hard for Romney

He visited life-long Democrat and former NYC Mayor Ed Koch. NYT reports:
The anecdote Mr. Koch shared on this recent Saturday was original because the subject had unfolded just the day before. Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire gambling mogul and bankroller of conservative political causes, had invited himself to Mr. Koch’s law office. “His opening line was, ‘People have told me you’re the only person in the world that can elect Romney in Florida,’ ” Mr. Koch said.


  1. I don't favor legal controls, but it is scandalous how much influence billionaire Sheldon Adelson wields over Romney and the political process in general.

    1. It is unfortunate. However, the fundamental problem isn't that Adelson spends so much money, it's that close to 300 million people fall for all these tricks the republicans and democrats play.

  2. Part way through this cycle it became clear to Adelson that there was no going back. If Romney loses, Adelson will be attacked by the full apparatus of the state. Too late to back off, he's doubling down.
