Adelson funds county GOP

With the state party a joke and incapable of raising money or executing the simplest tasks, megadonor Sheldon Adelson put his faith in the Clark County party, giving three quarters of what it raised since June.

The report shows Las Vegas Sands gave $30,000 out of the $46,000 raised by the county GOP, which really hasn't done much besides occasionally sending generally ignored news releases into the black hole of cyberspace, and despite spending nearly $80,000, mostly on payroll and other costs of keeping the lights on.

The $30,000 is couch cushion money for Adelson and won't do much in comparison to the Harry Reid legalized money laundering machine a k a the state Democratic Party, which raised a million bucks.
