Adelson Donates $5 Million to Help Elect House Republicans

Monday, 16 Apr 2012 11:51 AM

 


Sheldon Adelson, a Las Vegas billionaire whose family had bolstered Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich’s campaign, has donated $5 million to a super political action committee for House Republicans, according to campaign documents released last night.

Adelson, who is facing Justice Department and Securities and Exchange Commission investigations, had underwritten the former U.S. House speaker’s primary bid with $16.5 million.

The February donations were made to the Congressional Leadership Fund, created last year to maintain the House Republican majority.
