(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Sheldon Adelson is threatening to sue Democrats for implying he has been funding Republican candidates with money from prostitution.

The “Las Vegas Sun” reports that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has been told to retract and apologize for blogs that allege the casino mogul donates to GOP causes with “Chinese prostitution money.”

The allegations stem from a lawsuit filed by a former Las Vegas Sands executive who was fired from the company’s operations in Macau.

Adelson says the charge is “outrageous.”
