Miriam Adelson Top Female Donor of 2012 Election
Politico – The top female donor in the 2012 election was Miriam Adelson. She gave about $46 million, mostly to Republican committees and super PACs, which was more than twice as much as the next top 15 women donors — combined. Her husband, Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, donated $50 million.
But Miriam Adelson, a physician and drug addiction expert, wasn’t the one getting attention for hanging out with Mitt Romney in Jerusalem, actively speaking out against Obama administration policies or being courted by politicians.
