A $5 Million Donation Made by Sheldon Adelson Leaves Anxieties of Fear for the Online Gambling Industry
Tuesday during the Federal Election Commission filing several documents were leaked that Sheldon Adelson donated $5 million to Trump’s inauguration. The election and campaigning happened over the course of the last couple of years with the news just now hitting in the industry. The news has left for a level of feared anxiety for many reasons. This ‘donation’ is on top of the $11.2 million of previous donations made by Adelson.
The news brings concerns with all aspects of online gambling as the main response being that of a gambling ban at a federal level now. Although these are rumors and speculations, the news of the released documents, or that of the actions it’s being said the DOJ will revisit the opinion on online gambling in the US.
Adelson is a sneaky rat, if you will! He sneaks in and slithers his lump sums of money to political parties with everyone thinking he’s donating to good cause, when in all actuality, he’s donating for everything he believes in just like his $20 million he sent to a GOP super PAC that was called the Senate Leadership Fund last year. This was done just a few days before the Restoration of America’s Wire Act was reintroduced into the Senate.
