VIDEO – What do billionaire Super PAC funders Harold Simmons, Bob Perry, and Sheldon Adelson have to gain by supporting Mitt Romney? A lot.
In this Hardball interview with Eric Bates of Rolling Stone and Joe Conason of NationalMemo.com, they explore the motivation behind the biggest donors to Super PACs Restore Our Future and American Crossroads.
Harold Simmons likes Romney’s pledge to rollback the EPA and environmental regulations so he can dump nuclear waste in West Texas. Bob Perry, a Texas homebuilder, likes Romney’s willingness to support a cap on jury awards so he can avoid paying settlements for his shoddy home building. Sheldon Adelson likes Romney’s promise to bust unions so he can keep the workers in his Las Vegas casino from organizing.
