CORRUPTION - Obama targets GOP fundraiser

Republican fundraiser is targeted by Comrade Obama.

Obama attacks Freedom of Speech
  • The Bill of Rights has no meaning to corrupt Democrats.
  • Obama has the DOJ target GOP fundraiser Sheldon Adelson for daring to fund political ads supporting the Republicans.
  • Corrupt Democrats use the bottomless US Treasury to fund the intimidation of those who dare to oppose Socialism.

Comrade Obama's corrupt Justice Department has decided right before the election to "investigate" GOP fundraiser and casino owner Sheldon Adelson.  I am sure that Adelson's pledge to spend $100,000,000 to defeat Obama had nothing to do with the decision.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Obama's boot-licking toady U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles is looking at how the Adelson owned Las Vegas Sands casino handled money from a customer later indicted on drug trafficking charges and a former California executive subsequently convicted of taking illegal kickbacks, the Wall Street Journal reported.

It comes as Las Vegas Sands, which is controlled by billionaire Republican super-donor Sheldon Adelson, is investigated for possibly violating the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act in its operations in Macau, a Chinese territory.
The U.S. Attorney for Los Angeles, Andre Birotte Jr., declined to comment to the Journal.

That is totally expected considering this is a political witchhunt to frighten and send a message to everyone that the full weight of the Federal government will come down on your ass if you dare to oppose Democrat Socialism.

The money laundering probe is focused, the Journal reported, on whether the casino and some of its executives ignored warning signs and failed to file suspicious activity reports about transactions made by the two customers, as is required of casinos and other financial institutions.
Both customers spent most of the money at the Venetian casino, which is owned by Sands, the report said, citing people familiar with the matter.

FREEDOM  -  Lovers of liberty need to keep in mind that these insane Big Government "money laundering" laws that are used to intimidate and control people are eagerly passed by both parties.  In a free society people and businesses should be able to send and receive any amount of money from anywhere in the world at will.

In a free country a government should have no authority over what you do with your own money.
