Sheldon Adelson, the CEO of Las Vegas Sands, has died. Forbes listed him as the 28th wealthiest person in the world with $33.5 billion. Adelson had three claims to fame. First, besides being the Sands CEO, he owned more of the company’s stock than anyone else. It was his Sands stock that put him on the Forbes list. Second, he was the largest individual donor to the Republican Party and the presidential campaigns of Donald Trump. He donated at least $100 million in each of the last two presidential election cycles. And third, he was a supporter of the State of Israel and its current prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. Besides the Sands, he owned two newspapers, the Las Vegas Review-Journal and Israel Hayom, a free daily in Israel.
