Wonder how many contractors and sub-contractors saying today, hope it was a painful death. For those that don't know Adelson was legendary for not paying for work done on his construction projects. The contractors didn't have the money to fight him in court so he financially ruined many of these small companies. Makes sense that he was good buddies with Trump.

No wonder he liked Trump so much.

Same exact report the contractors who worked on Trump's properties claimed. The lawsuit fights for the money they deserved and earned, many got fucked in the end.

Adelson was so dirty....he paid off the temporary AG before Barr to write an opinion to ban online gaming.

It was funny following the money through charitable organizations to get to the AG.

Can't stand his politics. That is being very kind.

Am I happy he died? NO
Am I sad he died? NO

He had Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Said it before - will say it again. ANYONE who has had cancer is part of a "family" in which we wish for nothing but the best for all "family" members. Even loathsome bastards like Sheldon. And Rush Limbaugh. Knowing what I went thru and knowing he went thru many of the same things I would not wish that on anyone. Even someone like him.

Sheldon Adelson broke through in business in the late 1970's when he and a couple of partners developed COMDEX, a trade show for the booming computer industry.
Of course, COMDEX was held in mid-November in Las Vegas, centered around the LV Convention Center and the LV Hilton. I went to many of them in the 80's.

Met Adelson once, vendors would sign up a year in advance for booth space, I remember once it got popular, one large booth space (rented for 5 days) usually went for about the same as the purchase price of a house in San Jose, CA.

who gets the 33b now? not sheldon, cant take it with
Adelson’s wife Miriam, 75, already controls the bulk of the shares owned by the family through a series of trusts.

In some cases, she shares that authority with her husband’s longtime friend and business associate, Irwin Chafetz, 84.

In total, the family owns just under 57% of the stock, a stake worth some $24 billion.

Adelson leaves behind a number of potential heirs.

These include two surviving children from his first marriage; Miriam’s two daughters from her first husband; and two sons she and Adelson had together, who are now in their 20s.

Christopher Columbus was the Greatest American jew. He gets a bad wrap from the satanic public school system, Chris came over as a Christian missionary, public schools teach that he slaughtered innocent indians, this wasnt the case, they were man eating warriors that were killed.
