Sheldon Adelson, the casino tycoon worth nearly $25 billion, is known for advancing his beliefs — including the idea that Palestinians are an “invented people” and that military action on Iran should be on the table — using his political donations. As part of how he influences policy, it’s been reported that Adelson has underwritten congressional trips to Israel through AIPAC, the hawkish pro-Israel lobbying group. But Republic Report has found that AIPAC has in turn paid Adelson to help ferry lawmakers and their staff on luxory trips to Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and other locations. In addition to well-known Vegas casinos like the Venetian and Palazzo, Adelson still owns a travel company that operates several private planes.
