FOIPOP Findings: Paging Sheldon Adelson

One Saturday in May 2015, Albert Barbusci woke up and realized:

a) HPDP’s “silk road strategy” needed to include Israel and;

b) Casino magnate, Republican megadonor and staunch Israel supporter Sheldon Adelson needed to hook them up with an Israeli sister city and an introduction to the Israeli shipping line, ZIM.

So Barbusci dashed off a letter to Adelson, whom he says he has known for 20 years, and sent it along to CBRM Mayor Cecil Clarke for approval.

If he actually sent this missive and received a reply from Adelson, it isn’t included in the documents.

If he’s still waiting for an answer, I’ve got bad news for him…
