(Washington, DC)  —  Sheldon Adelson has received an apology from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, over blog entries linking the Las Vegas casino owner to prostitution.

The “Review-Journal” says the DCCC has removed the blogs under threat of a lawsuit.  They alleged Adelson donated to Republican candidates and causes with “Chinese prostitution money” from his casinos in Macau.

In a statement, the committee admitted the charges were “untrue and unfair,” and apologized to Adelson and his family “for any injury we have caused.”
