"What will House Republicans do when their Chinese prostitution money comes from billionaire Sheldon Adelson?" said Jesse Ferguson of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. "House Republicans are fighting tirelessly to protect billionaires like Sheldon Adelson who make fortunes overseas and Adelson is now the largest single donor to the Republican Majority. It’s past time for House Republicans to reject the support of these groups funded by foreign money from a Chinese prostitution strategy."
Any thoughts the DCCC had of intimidating Mitt Romney backer, Sheldon Adelson, have been just pipe dreams. When Adelson was accused of permitting prostitution at his Chinese casino he threatened to haul the DCCC into court. In an angry letter to the DCCC which you can read here Adelson through his lawyers turned the tables and demanded that the DCCC comply with his demands or go to court. Adelson insists that the DCCC:
1. Remove the offending text from it's web site.
2. Agree not to republish the comments.
3. Apologize publicly by producing "a prominent statement, in a form approved by Mr. Adelson, retracting and apologizing for your false claims."
Take that, Debbie Wasserman Schultz!
