Casino billionaire Sheldon Abelson has already given $10 million to the Gingrich campaign and may give much more to Republicans. But even he apparently thinks current system is wrong and that we need campaign finance reform, even as he continues to play by the existing rules.
“I’m against very wealthy people attempting to or influencing elections. But as long as it’s doable I’m going to do it. Because I know that guys like Soros have been doing it for years, if not decades.”
Billionaire currency speculator George Soros has said the finance world is rigged and gamed, but certainly has no problems expoiting it.
Neither of these 1%’ers have our interests in mind when they finance candidates.
