Some may not be so forgiving of Sheldon Adelson


 I wrote yesterday about how Mitt Romney Republicans were appalled by the tenor of Newt Gingrich’s attacks on their candidate.

According to Fred Zeidman, a major Romney backer, there was no ill will harbored toward Sheldon Adelson, who was bankrolling the attacks.

Gingrich and Adelson have a decades old friendship, and Gingrich is owed, according to Zeidman, for his stalwart pro-Israelism when he helmed the U.S. House of Representatives in the 1990s.

That’s generous — and maybe not to every Romney backer’s taste, especially now that the anti-Romney film, "When Mitt Romney Came to Town," is screening.

The film focuses on Romney’s role as a venture capitalist in liquidating some companies and creating unemployment.

Here’s the Washington Post’s conservative Right Turn columnist, Jennifer Rubin, who has made no secret of her support for Romney, just now on Twitter:

Sheldon Adelson who makes money off poor people gambling (disproportionately) paid for this schlock film
