4. Then why is he going to double his donations to the GOP?

Doesn't make sense if he says he should have backed Obama, but is still going to give more money to the GOP

2. Someone is scared of going to prison:

Comeback Billionaire: How Adelson Dominates Chinese Gambling And U.S. Politics
Steven Bertoni

The WSJ wrote that the U.S. Attorney’s office in Las Vegas is looking into whether Sands and its executives violated U.S. anti-money laundering laws by failing to report suspicious activity by two big-spending gamblers

The investigation involves Zhenli Ye Gon (who has been indicted on counts of trafficking methamphetamine ingredients) and Ausaf Umar Siddiqui, (a former executive of Fry’s Electronics who went to jail on bribe charges) who wired tens of millions of dollars to the Sands Venetian casino in Las Vegas during the mid-2000s.

The case is one more legal headache for Sands CEO Adelson, a major Republican donor who has given more than $10 million to the Super PAC of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and pledged to give a “limitless” amount of money to defeat Barack Obama.

6. So why does adelson say he will double down on future Repuke contributions?

Is it just that he wants to back the winner to get his return from investment?
