GOP Casino Billionaire Bets Big on Big Government

Casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson, patron saint of military hawks and deficit hawks, apparently thinks government can be of some use, after all, according to secret tapes reported on Thursday.

The Nevada Independent reported that a secret tape captured the state’s attorney general asking a gambling regulator to help Adelson defeat a lawsuit filed against him by a former employee. Adelson felt so strongly about the utility and benefits of government servants, that he even took a special trip just to meet with the regulator and seek his assistance. Which he did not get because fuck that guy.

Adelson’s newfound belief that government bureaucrats are contributing members of society has also led him to donate tens of thousands of dollars to the state’s attorney general as part of his general civic-mindedness.
