Watchdog group seeks probe of billionaire Adelson's US political donations

November 19, 2015 18:06

A US government watchdog group has asked two federal oversight agencies to investigate billionaire Sheldon Adelson to determine if any money he donated to political campaigns in the past was illegally laundered in his foreign casinos.

Adelson, the single biggest Republican donor in the 2012 presidential election, is the chief executive of Las Vegas Sands Corp, which derives the bulk of its revenue from casinos in the global gaming hot spot of Macau, an hour's ferry ride from Hong Kong.The complaints, drawn up by the Campaign for Accountability, were filed earlier this month with the Federal Election Commission and the US Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.
