Gingrich Gets Five Million From Gambling Mogul’s Wife

I wrote yesterday about the main financial backer of Newt Gingrich – casino owner Sheldon Adelson. According to a New York Times report, Adelson’s wife, Miriam Adelson matched her husband’s pre-South Carolina primary $5 million gift to Gingrich with her own gift of the same amount.  The gift will go to Winning Our Future, a political action committee dedicated to making Gingrich the GOP nominee.

Sheldon Adelson runs an empire of gambling casinos in Las Vegas, Macau and Singapore. His company is under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Justice Department in relation to allegations of bribes in Macau. Macau is the largest gambling market in the world, and caters to high rolling Chinese patrons.

Oddly, Gingrich’s family values campaign owes its life blood to profits made in part from free spending Chinese gamblers.

    It’s ok, they’re heathens. And Gingrich can always argue that he’s backing the balance of payments between China and the US.

    I think I’m done…. /snark
