It's not just Newt Gingrich who get to spend time with Sheldon Adelson anymore. In a rare public appearance, the casino magnate and Republican sugar daddy testified in a Las Vegas court. Adelson had to defend himself against claims that a Hong Kong businessman worked behind the scenes to help Adelson’s Las Vegas Sands casinos start business in Macau. So what did we learn about Adelson? Apparently he is a “hot-dog freak” and has a sense of humor about his height, but also can be pushy, trying to cite pamphlets he’d brought in a briefcase and hadn’t introduced as evidence. His lawyers tried to bar cameras in the courtroom, saying they posed a security risk.
