Adelson Sues Nat’l Democrat Council For Libel

From the Associated Press:

Wealthy GOP donor Adelson files libel suit in NY

Wednesday August 8, 2012

NEW YORK (AP) — Billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson has filed a defamation lawsuit in New York against the National Jewish Democratic Council and top officials, saying they made libelous statements regarding his political contributions.

The lawsuit filed Wednesday in federal court in Manhattan seeks $60 million in damages. Adelson is chairman and chief executive officer of Las Vegas Sands Corp. and donates to Republican campaigns.

The lawsuit alleges the Washington-based Council said Adelson personally approved of prostitution in resorts owned by Sands China Limited, a subsidiary of Las Vegas Sands. The suit accuses the Council of "assassinating" Adelson’s character.

The Council said its reports referenced mainstream press accounts and were "wholly appropriate."

The press accounts described claims by a fired former Sands China executive. Adelson has denied the claims.

More of this needs to be done. Early and often.

Otherwise, every Republican donor will be put in the crosshairs.

    Sue the channels that play Obama’s lying adds. At least that way after Obama says I approve this add, we could hear the channel, we do not support this paid add or suggest our viewers buy it.
