Quote Rachel Weiner and Chris Cillizza:
Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, who helped prop up House speaker Newt Gingrich’s presidential primary campaign for months, is now using his massive wealth to help former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney.
According to two sources familiar with the donation, Adelson is giving $10 million to the pro-Romney super PAC Restore Our Future. Under Federal Election Commission law, Restore Our Future is free to accept donations of unlimited amounts from single donors but must reveal the identity of those givers.
It’s the biggest single donation ever made to the group.
This just boggles me. I can't get my mind around this stuff.
Why would any individual donate $10 million dollars to anything? -- other than maybe setting up libraries or something, or maybe a soup kitchen or two. How does any individual have that kind of money to just toss into a bin so something called a Super PAC can spend it in various ways to try to get someone elected?
I guess since Obama's QE efforts didn't get back into the economy as "jobs" the "jobs" (the newspeak for "profits") are going to pay for his removal from office through the election process. There you go, Obama, see how much they appreciate you? Fool you once, huh?
“I’m against very wealthy people attempting to or influencing elections,” he said in a March Forbes interview. “But as long as it’s doable I’m going to do it.”
Now, that's integrity.
