In addition to the $10 million Sheldon Adelson already gave to Mitt Romney’s Restore Our Future PAC and the $100 million he says he will contribute to it, he’s also doling out another $35 million to Karl Rove and Eric Cantor.
Billionaire casino owner Sheldon Adelson has pledged to give $35 million more two three GOP nonprofits in addition to the $36 million he has already spent this election cycle, reports the Huffington Post. The three nonprofits getting this latest round of donations are the Karl Rove-affiliated Crossroads GPS, an unspecified one with ties to the billionaire Koch brothers and a third linked to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. The donations will bring his total spending for the cycle to $71 million.
And according to John McCain, Adelson may be funneling foreign money into the election. Casinos in Macau, an administrative region of China, are where Adelson makes his fortune.
