Gingrich and Adelson met in Vegas
CNN ^ | 2-4-12 | Bohn

Posted on 02/04/2012 3:39:15 PM PST by VinL

– The Newt Gingrich campaign held a meeting with approximately 60 donors Friday in Las Vegas, including casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, a source with knowledge of the session told CNN.

Gingrich, who attended the meeting, had a brief discussion with Adelson at the session, the source said.

The long-time friends are legally barred from speaking about the Adelson family's $11 million contributions to the super PAC supporting Gingrich's White House bid.

“A chief organizer of his South Carolina victory, Adam Waldeck, was passing through Las Vegas this week on his way to set up Mr. Gingrich’s campaign in California, which holds it primary on June 5.

And at 2 p.m. local time, the campaign sent the press corps a tentative schedule of appearances for Mr. Gingrich next week in the caucus states of Colorado and Minnesota, and in Ohio, where early voting for the March 6 primary begins Feb. 7. On Friday he will be in Washington to address the Conservative Political Action Conference.

It doesn’t sound like a candidate preparing to drop out. “

And be prepared for the new full course press attack on Adelson in the MSM.

The casino company run by the principal financial backer of Newt Gingrich’s presidential bid, Sheldon Adelson, has been under criminal investigation for the last year by the Department of Justice and the Securities Exchange Commission for alleged bribery of foreign officials, according to corporate documents

Well this is ‘news’ to me. I never hear of Adelson until now. But in this day and age of Obamanation how does one define ‘bribery’???? Does not the US government offer money to just about anyone to get their support?

Think a list of conservatives who haven't been investigated/intimidated by the DoJ might be shorter....Sounds to me like he may have been set up.

But it's OK for Mitt to have multiple offshore accounts in a country known for their money laundering.

Agree.

The word must have been out that Newt was considering announcing and all his potential allies & financial supporters were immediately targeted. Time frame ‘for the past year’.

I hope Adelson & Newt are prepared for this new character assassination.

I doubt it. Adelson probably wants his money back.

Got a call from the RNC. My husband got on the other phone and we both told them how much we did not appreciate the unethical manner in which the RNC was manipulating the rules (Virginia) and not enforcing the rules (Florida). We also told them that we will be changing our voter registration to “Independent” and will be making all donations directly to candidates only.

If all of us do this, it could make a difference.

We dumped the RNC a long time ago. Only send donations directly to candidates. Started with Sarah Palin.

Same here. The only "donations" the RNC get from us are requests to remove us from their database. No $/No RINO's. They don't seem to care, though.

I pretty much figure the RNC and most establishment RINO's get their funding directly from corporations, now. They obviously don't need my paltry $$...and they certainly don't work for it.

The false rumors were a ploy, once again, to discourage Newt Gingrich voters to come out and voting.

Sick of their tactics!

I told my local R committee person the same thing. Not one penny until and unless they start acting like a conservative party. It WOULD make a difference if we all did it, but “they” always tell us a 3rd party is not practical, etc. Wonder why?

Oh my gosh. I had the exact same conversation with a little girl that called me last Tuesday. Wonder if they think it is a recording when they call us for donations.

Yes, except Sheldon Adelson was born here (Massachusetts, IIRC). He's also a big leader in the Republican Jewish Coalition.

alleged bribery of foreign officials

And they expect Adelson to obtain building permits for his mega-casino in China with a nice smile and a firm handshake? The entire world is run by Baksheesh. and Washington, D.C. is no different.

I am keeping track of all the so called conservative media who are literally out to destroy Gingrich in a viciously planned and even coordinated assault. I do not know how these people sleep at night. They have betrayed so many and they cannot be trusted ever again.
