Diagnosis: South Carolina GOP Has Terminal ADD (Adelson Dollar Disorder)
Casino Billionaire Sheldon Adelson’s crudely selfish drive to ban online gambling is functioning as a kind of political barium meal test – vividly revealing the cancerous way how his money (and that of those like him) is metastasizing into a lethal threat to American political health.
The incorrrectly headlined Sheldon Adelson: Not Getting His Money’s Worth In South Carolina Fitsnews.com 24 April 2014 takes note of the development I noted in Primary-Fearing Lindsey Graham Takes Sheldon Adelson Job–Stopping Online Gambling! and adds
Not long after we ran the item on Graham’s sellout, S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley followed the dollar signs and announced her support for Graham’s online poker ban.
Naturally she never mentioned Sheldon Adelson’s money, although she laid the “family values” on pretty thick.
“Allowing Internet gaming to invade the homes of every American family, and to be piped into our dens, living rooms, workplaces, and even our kids’ bedrooms and dorm rooms, is a major decision. We must carefully examine the short and long-term social and economic consequences before Internet gambling spreads,” Haley said.
Fitsnews goes on to reveal the smoking gun
One of the “bag men” for special interest money in South Carolina is none other than former S.C. Republican Party chairman Katon Dawson – whose top-heavy consulting operation we wrote about HERE.
Dawson is reportedly the man in charge of a big chunk of Adelson-related largesse – which he has been entrusted to employ on behalf of Graham and Haley’s reelection bids.
This is very sad. Keaton Dawson as Republican National Committeeman was the conservative hope defeated in the corrupt anti-white coup which plunged the RNC into the Michael Steele Chairmanship disaster in 2009. This resulted in a totally predictable scandal so severe that Steele’s mentor, the disgusting Reince Priebus, subsequently had to kick him out and take over to cover up.
Maybe Dawson concluded if you can’t beat them join them. If the stories in the Fitsnews link and comment thread to Dawson are valid, he has turned into the worst type of Conservatism Inc parasite.
This kind of money swilling around the state explains a lot. As I said in Treason Lobby Flaunts Control Of South Carolina GOP Via Hispandering Poodle Rep Mulvaney (SC-5)
Instead insidious elements bought Jim DeMint’s replacement by the cipher Tim Scott, prevented all but grassroots opposition to the despicable Lindsey Graham and as the NumbersUSA score card shows the GOP delegation as a whole has deteriorated, including “You Lie” Joe Wilson who has fallen to C+ this Congress from a Career A.
That smell is not Palmettos! South Carolina Patriots need to get a grip.
