Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his wife for a second time have given $500,000 to a Super PAC supporting Rabbi Shmuley Boteach's bid for Congress.

The Adelsons gave the money to the Patriot Prosperity PAC, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing people with knowledge of the gift, after having given the same amount earlier this year. They also gave $10,000 directly to the Boteach campaign.

Boteach is running as the Republican candidate in New Jersey’s 9th Congressional District against eight-term incumbent Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.).

Boteach, who once was affiliated with the Chabad movement, bills himself as “America’s Rabbi.” He briefly hosted a show on TLC called “Shalom in the Home” and is the author of several books, including “Kosher Sex,” “Kosher Adultery,” “The Kosher Sutra” and, most recently, “Kosher Jesus.”

Adelson has said multiple times that a candidate's support for Israel is critical to whether he gives and how much. He has given $10 million to a Super PAC supporting Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and earlier in the campaign put $20 million toward Newt Gingrich's GOP primary bid. 

Super PACs can raise unlimited sums from corporations, unions and other groups, as well as individuals, and indirectly support a political candidate. They cannot by law coordinate with the candidate's official campaign.

Have you once thought something here isn't right. He is to gain over 2.5 billion in tax breaks if Romney wins. Romney also has told him he will move the embassy to where Sheldon wants. We have a paid politician here. Romney is right Bain Capitol he doesn't control. He put his best friend attorney to over see over 250 million dollars and Bain Capitol. They call this when he said he has no knowledge blind eye. You really think his best friend attorney is not going to keep him in the blind. For one thing its against the law for the attorney to do this. Another thing all those companies he has destroyed like Sealey he says made them stronger and helped them out. They were no. 1 already and Bain stepped in to make them bigger. Look at what Sealey said about Romney not Bain but Romney that they came in with 140 mil and sealey took loan out for 650 mil had to sell their company which sealey lost money and Bain again collected over 750 mil in the sale. Read how about duncan donuts, kb toys the list goes on big companies destroyed by Bains. Get your facts don't let these BIG CORPORATION get away with threats. Reagan Advisor: History Shows Romney’s Tax Plan Won’t Boost Job Growth. All this gets me sick but what tops all is Romney in his church which he is bringing it into my home. I don't know about you all but for me his church doesn't belong in my house. I married into this religion back in 77 and for this to happen happens all the time with the upper authorities in the church. Romney tells women who do get pregnant out of wedlock. They must give their children up for adoption and if they don't they are to be excommunicated for defying authority figures in the church. Its the church beliefs to give your child up to their adoption agency. I sure want a present that throughs his authority around in the church and can see his lies in government. Stop this no more corruption in our government. Aren't you tired of being told how to live your life as long as you are doing it with in the law.
