Robber Barron Election Tactics


Las Vegas casino owner Sheldon Adelson just contributed $1.5 million, the largest out-of-state contribution ever in Virginia, to George Allen's super PAC. Addelson has donated going on triple digit millions to Republican Campaigns this year/

It's about the many, not the money. 

Example of record breaking donations in the wake of the Supreme Courts undoing of 130 plus years of campaign reform..reform that ended the influence of the Robber Barons in the 19th and early 20th century. Modern Robber Barons buying elections just as their great-great ancestors did?

I find it scary that there is no law to stop people from buying elections. But then again they people that would make that law benefit from there not being one.
