The Shameful Silence of Sheldon Adelson’s Myriad Beneficiaries

Dovid Efune of Algemeiner asks why none of the hundreds of beneficiaries of Sheldon Adelson’s largesse have spoken up to defend him.

Sure Adelson is rich, very rich, but in many ways he is the same as you and me. He strives not to pay more taxes then he legally owes, and is passionate about his opinions and beliefs on a number of matters. Unlike most of us however, he gives away a lot of his money in the service of what he believes will make the world a better place for his descendants to live in. Living by Ghandi’s idiom, “be the change you want to see in the world.”
