The company owned by top GOP donor Sheldon Adelson was fined $25,000 today, reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal:
Finding that Las Vegas Sands Corp. and affiliate Sands China Ltd. had shown an “intention to deceive the court,” Clark County District Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez on Friday fined the companies $25,000 and imposed other sanctions.
Adelson and his wife have given $10 million to Mitt Romney’s Restore Our Future super PAC and millions more to Congressional candidates, party committees, and other super PACs. This also marks the second donor to Romney’s super PAC to be fined in court in the past week. Last Friday, Scotts Miracle-Gro, which donated $200,000 to Restore Our Future in June, was fined $12.5 million for environmental violations.
