Adelson Gets Apology From Democrats
(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.”
