Adelson's Group Attacks Online Gambling (Again)

This story was published more than 8 years ago.

Las Vegas Sands Chairman and billionaire Sheldon Adelson's Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling has launched a new wave of attacks against legal cyber betting, posting videos of prominent politicians voicing concerns about the act.

The Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling posted the videos to YouTube, which feature politicians George Pataki, Wellington Webb, Blanche Lincoln, and Willie Brown. The group goes on to tow the company line on internet gambling, saying that it could fund terrorism, affect the poor negatively, offer underage gambling, or fund organized crime such as money laundering.

It should be noted that Adelson's Las Vegas Sands casino previously had to settle a casino of criminal money laundering charges.

The videos are available for viewing below:

"Terrorism"... sigh. When exactly is that dumb charade going to end?

Selling milk could be used to fund terrorism. Let's ban milk.
