“Much of Mr. Adelson’s casino profits that go to him come from his casino in Macau, which says that obviously, maybe in a roundabout way foreign money is coming into an American political campaign… That is a great deal of money, and we need a level playing field and we need to go back to the realization… that we have to have a limit on the flow of money and corporations are not people.”
Just let that settle in for a moment … money is fungible. If Billionaire Sheldon Adelson or any other billionaire wanted to channel money from foreign donors … all they would have to do is have “profits” and that money is now Sheldon Adelson’s money. If Sheldon had a deal with a foreign government like China and Russia for example (maybe in return for something of interest to him) … they could simply give him $100 million and he could accept that $100 million as monies won for his casino in Macau right off the coast of China. This is bad business and John McCain speaks the truth.
