Silverman offers to perform sexual act if Adelson donates $100 million to Barack Obama instead of Mitt Romney
Sarah Silverman is making a billionaire Republican an offer he may or may not refuse. In her offer, Sarah Silverman is making what she calls an “indecent proposal” to Las Vegas casino tycoon Shelden Adelson, who plans to back Mitt Romney in the upcoming election by giving him $100 million dollars, by telling him she will perform a sexual act for him if he donates that money to Barack Obama instead.
The ultimate goal of the Sarah Silverman campaign, however, is to raise awareness towards the true reality of campaign financing and donations and how the power of a few wealthy donors can vastly sway a campaign.
“If you give that $100 million to Obama instead of Romney, I will — well, I won’t have sex with you because we’re not married and I am a nice girl,” Silverman said in the video before naming a sex act that includes her wearing a bikini.
Despite her risqué request, Sarah Silverman is being backed by others, such as Mik Moore, treasurer for the Jewish Council for Education and Research, the pro-Obama PAC supporting the Sarah Silverman video.
“We’re uncomfortable with the size of the gift, [and] that one person can single handedly affect the election,” Mik Moore, said in an interview with ABCNews.com about Adelson’s contributions.
Moore said his group has objected to many of Adelson’s political viewpoints.
“They are not reflective of the priorities of American Jews, but [his money has] given him a large megaphone for which to amplify his views,” he said.
Adelson’s net worth is at an estimated $25 billion, and it has been reported he has already donated $10 million to Romney Super PAC Restore Our Future.
