Skip to comments.Sheldon Adelson: Not Getting His Money’s Worth In South Carolina

Hes the Las Vegas casino magnate pouring money into the coffers of Republican politicians (and the groups supporting their reelection) in an effort to purchase their opposition to online poker.
Why does Adelson want to ban online poker? Easy: Its costing him money.
Weve got no beef with Adelson, obviously. Hes simply making an investment in the future of his increasingly outdated business model.
No, our beef is with the politicians taking his cash politicians like U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.).
Last month we wrote about Grahams support for a federal online poker ban which were sure has absolutely nothing to do with the money Adelson is pouring into South Carolina on his behalf.
Not long after we ran the item on Grahams sellout, S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley followed the dollar signs and announced her support for Grahams online poker ban.

I love playing online poker. It’s a shame special interests are trying to buy votes to take that away from me. Sheldon bankrolls a lot of GOP candidates, which is good. Too bad he feels he has to step all over me and people like me in order to do it.
He’s not stepping on you to support GOPers. He’s supporting GOPers who don’t have the integrity not to help him step on you.
Nikki Haley is clueless on immigration. It will suit Adelson.
At some point, D.C. needs to actually do something, say something, said Haley, who also did not offer an opinion on details such as a path to citizenship. It is causing a divide across this country, the longer they put off making a decision.
He’s not conservative and he hates Tea Party people.
His sole aim is cheap casino workers, i.e. illegal aliens.
Did it ever occur to Mr. Adelson to use his billions to corner the market on online poker instead of trying to kill it to prop up an outdated business structure? Crony Capitalism defined.
Pshaw! Ping both.

She is as dumb as a post - the majority of U.S. citizens DO NOT want to change our immigrations laws.
The majority want our laws enforced - NOW!
Adelson is a huge supporter of Amnesty.
Logical, since Las Vegas needs tens of thousands of low skill, low paid blue collar workers.
