Sheldon Adelson gave another $10 million to pro-Romney super PAC

Source: Politico

Billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson kept giving and giving to the bitter end of Republican Mitt Romney’s doomed presidential campaign.

Adelson, along with wife, Miriam, poured $10 million into the account of pro-Romney super PAC Restore Our Future on Oct. 19, new documents filed today with the Federal Election Commission indicate.

... An eclectic mix of notable businesspeople also made big-dollar, 11-hour contributions to Restore Our Future, including Oracle Corp. Chief Executive Officer Lawrence Ellison ($3 million), Houston Texans Chairman Robert McNair ($1 million) and Jimmy John’s sub shop founder James Liautaud ($500,000).

Others include Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Publisher Richard Scaife ($417,500), former Price is Right game show host Bob Barker ($174,200), Dick’s Sporting Goods Chairman Edward Stack ($100,000) and Mary Brock, co-owner of the WNBA’s Atlanta Dream ($100,000).

1. Bob Barker?

 

I figured as a PETA freak he'd be on the other side.


Must be nice to have that kind of throwaway scratch.

2. Well, I guess I have to respect his supporting Romney to the bitter end and not jumping ship.

Not really but it sounded like I was being nice for a minute didn't it?



I wish I had so much money to waste in the face of such certain defeat.

4. Does this not reinforce the theory that all the money

in the world those assholes were throwing at the very wealthy mitt romney couldn't buy them what they wanted most? To kick our President out of the White House?

Sorry, to see Bob Barker didn't learn much in his life.

"Restore our Future".. rofl.. you mean "kill our future".
