Why Adelson is so generous to GOP

The greedy gnome is a pragmatist, not an ideologue:

In actuality, Adelson’s fealty to the GOP stems primarily from the fact that his “Las Vegas Sands Corp. is being scrutinized by federal investigators looking into possible money-laundering in Vegas, and possible violation of bribery laws by the company’s ventures in China, including four casinos in the gambling mecca of Macau.”

    Something fails the smell test. SOP for the overlords with a legal bind is to buy off both sides. Betting 100% on the out party to become the in party is a good way to piss off an Attorney General with a penchant for holding his big donors harmless.

    Yeah, but isn’t Holder’s penchant to hold all well-off and powerful miscreants harmless? Who of those has he ever gone after?
