Quick- before it disappears. The ties between Newt and Sheldon Adelson.
Edited on Thu May-05-11 02:36 PM by BeHereNow
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.ph...

I would suspect that this will vanish from the net sooner than later.
Does someone know how to capture it before it is scrubbed?

""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.

3. Not just a "Sugar Daddy" a CRIMINAL Billionaire, not unlike the Koch-EFE
I want to make sure we have as much information as we can about this
relationship, in case the Tea Baggers suddenly think he is a viable
candidate.

4. Gingrich doesn't have a chance of becoming the president.
But what a great scam this is, look at all that money he makes just for pretending he has any political capital and for popping up on TV every once in a while to mouth off some kind of garbabe or another. Talk about 'welfare queens'!

Have any of these politicians ever done a decent, honest day's work in their entire lives?

This pretend run for the WH, by him and most of the others, is simply to make even more money. The best thing that could happen is that no one pays any attention to this fraudulent, wife cheating, hypocritical, not-too-bright, moron.

6. Exactly. Although the lights are shining on the Koch brothers
and they're certainly two of the worst out there for promoting fascism, there are others of their class and acquaintance still scuttling around in the darkness.

Adelson is certainly one of them.

8. "scuttling around in the darkness" Perfect! Like roaches.
My guess is the Kock-EFE and Adelson have an agreement.

Newt will certainly attract a percentage of nut case tea baggers-
in the long run, he will drop out and encourage his following
to vote for the Koch-EFE selection.

We shall see.
