Daughter of Billionaire GOP Donor Sheldon Adelson Pushes Democracy Now! Staff, Seizes Camera at RNC

Posted: 08/30/2012 11:34 am

When Democracy Now! senior producer Mike Burke attempted to interview billionaire casino magnate and Republican donor Sheldon Adelson inside the Republican National Convention, a woman identified as Adelson's daughter grabbed our video camera, tried to take it into a private suite and then threw the camera to the ground.

This was all captured on tape. Watch the following video:



While Adelson's daughter first accused our Burke of hitting her, she later came out of the suite to apologize. Top GOP strategist Karl Rove was right there, not saying anything.

Burke also questioned another billionaire GOP donor, David Koch, about the impact of the Citizen United decision on this year's election. He also caught up with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Republican National Committee Chair Michael Steele.
