Reid: ‘Don’t Pick On’ Sheldon Adelson— ‘I Know Him’

Don’t expect Harry Reid to launch a tirade against Nevada businessman Sheldon Adelson anytime soon. Speaking with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, the Senate majority leader explained why he targets the Koch brothers exclusively while leaving other wealthy donors for both parties out of his senate-floor criticisms.

“They are in it to make money,” Reid said. “That’s their whole goal here: To add zeros to their billions.”

When pressed why Adelson gets a pass, Reid got very defensive, pointing to his personal relationship with the magnate.

“I know Sheldon Adelson — he’s not in this for money,” he said “He’s in it because he has certain ideological views.”

“Sheldon Adelson, don’t pick on him — he’s not in it to make money,” Reid added.
