    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, it is allegations but worrisome never the less.

    From Ron Paul


    Of course Mr. Adelson denies the charges:

    And our church accepts donations from someone connected to arson and attempted murder. What's the point?

    Romney isn't running prostitutes out of Vegas is he?

    There's 320 million people in this country. Everybody's connected to somebody and those connections aren't always pretty. Ask Kevin Bacon.

    Just curious, are you so tolerant toward Obama?

    To me at least two points are:

    1. Is he trying to buy influence to help him in the law suit in Nevada? He could loose many more millions than he has spent if that case goes against him.

    2. If the charge is true then by accepting the money it is a tacit nod of approval for all types of immorality.

    I do not know what you mean by connected to arson and attempted murder. Could be a policeman. Or it is a member who paid for their crimes, then there is no ethical problem. However, if the money was tithed from fees for committing arson or attempted murder, that would be unethical. Depends on the details.

    I think the highest form of purity in this area of life would be to not donate one penny to either side.

    The left is scared to death of Romney so they are trying to create whatever dirt they can because this time a round Obama has an actual record to run on and it is not good.

    Sheldon Gary Adelson (born August 4, 1933) is an Ewok*.

    "He also owns the Israeli daily newspaper Israel HaYom. Adelson's initial public offering of Las Vegas Sands occurred in December 2004. He is listed in the Forbes 400 as the eighth wealthiest American.[1] His personal wealth is estimated to be $24.9 billion as of March 2012."

    Adelson originally supported Nrwt Gingrich and the lawsuit filed by Steven Craig Jacobs (common Ewokish name) brings some things to light:

    "Jacobs, who ran the resort, says in his lawsuit that he was wrongly fired from the company after he objected to allegedly illegal actions that he was asked to perform.

    Among them: Jacobs claims Adelson wanted him to hire a Chinese lawyer to dig up 'negative information' on local Macau officials that the company could use as leverage, the Sun reported.

    Jacobs says he also disagreed with Adelson over increasing the casino's use of junkets -- trips to Macau by groups of high-rolling gamblers organized by third-party groups.

    Some junkets in Macau have been organized by members of Chinese organized crime syndicates.

    Reuters reported in 2010 that alleged triad crime boss Cheung Chi-tai, who was connected with a junket to the Sands Macau, was running one of the VIP rooms at the casino, according to witnesses.

    That information came out at a trial of four men convicted of breaking a Sands dealer's arms and legs, allegedly on Chi-tai's orders, according to Reuters.

    In his lawsuit, Jacobs says Adelson ordered him to keep Chi-tai's name and any information about possible triad involvement secret from the casino's board of directors."

    I am also wondering why the Obama gay allegations and the professional hit style murders of his former gay lovers don't bother Crabby.

    CTB,

    You should be ashamed of yourself, joining those who slime Romney just to feather Obama's nest!

    You should be ashamed of yourself for supporting a "baby killer"!

    You should be ashamed of yourself for supporting a Marxist Revolutionary!

    You should be ashamed of yourself for supporting a Chicago hoodlum!

    It is supremely and disgustingly hypocritical for a professing Christian to talk about morality while ardently supporting the most rabid abortionist in the democrat party!
