Given Newt's announcement to set up campaign headquarters in Atlanta,
posted by SecularMotion in LBN today:
"Newt Gingrich Primes White House Announcement"http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=102x4840525
I would suspect that this will vanish from the net sooner than later.
Does someone know how to capture it before it is scrubbed?http://www.southernstudies.org/2011/03/voices-meet-the-scandal-plagued-billionaire-behind-newt-gingrich.html
""The bond between David Koch and Scott Walker is not the only relationship between a reactionary billionaire and a rightwing politician contaminating the U.S. political scene. Attention also needs to be paid to what's going on between Sheldon Adelson and Newt Gingrich.
Adelson -- the fifth wealthiest person in the United States, with a net worth estimated by Forbes at $23 billion -- has made a major bet on Gingrich. Since 2006 he has contributed $7 million to Gingrich's fundraising entity American Solutions for Winning the Future. Through this 527 vehicle (and a regular political action committee with the same name), Gingrich is raking in loads of cash as he teases the country about whether he plans to run for President while mouthing off with a variety of reckless policy pronouncements.
The American Solutions website has a section labeled Corruption. In January a post there announced a new feature called Corrupt Report that was supposed to monitor news of misbehavior "regardless of political party." Somehow the site has failed to cover the recent disclosure by Adelson's company, Las Vegas Sands, that it is being investigated by both the Securities and Exchange Commission and the U.S. Justice Department for possible violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The Nevada Gaming Control Board is also said to be looking into the matter."
DU researchers, we need to investigate.
