Sarah Silverman Extends Unusual Offer To Mitt Romney Supporter On Barack Obama's Behalf
Sarah Silverman, 41, a comedian and vocal Barack Obama supporter, has a unique way of raising money for the President's re-election campaign. Silverman, acknowledging that funds for the Mitt Romney campaign will far exceed those for Obama, due to massive donations Romney is receiving from several billionaires, is going straight to the source — in this case, billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, 78, who committed $100 million to Romney's campaign.
Silverman, in support of her Obama, says that she will "scissor" Adelson while wearing a bikini if he gives the funds to President Obama instead of Romney, reports the Huffington Post. Silverman extends the offer in a video she posted to ScissorSheldon.com, a site she created and dedicated to the unusual cause.
"Do you know how many Republican billionaires are giving money to Romney," Silverman says in the video, addressing Adelson. "All of them. How many of them are getting scissored by a bikini-bottomed Jewess with big naturals?" she asked, "How many, Sheldon? You'll be the only elderly billionaire on the block to have traditional lesbian sex through to climax with a girl who had her own show on Comedy Central," Silverman says, smiling broadly, before she demonstrates.
The site isn't all just fun and off-color jokes, however. Silverman also posts a petition asking Romney to stop accepting Adelson's funds. "Billionaires are giving Romney a record-breaking amount of money for this campaign," the petition says. "One of these men, 78-year-old casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, has committed to giving 100 million dollars to Romney. Adelson is the same man who stopped backing AIPAC for supporting aid to the Palestinians, freely mocked Obama at a Birthright event, and who Republican Senator John McCain suggests is bringing foreign money into American elections.
Adelson has said "he will do whatever it takes" to defeat President Obama. American Jews overwhelmingly reject both Mr. Adelson's views and his outsized role in this election. Tell Mitt Romney to reject Sheldon Adelson’s support. Sign this petition to keep Adelson’s money out of politics."
