LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas Sands Corp. chief and billionaire
Republican political donor Sheldon Adelson is firing back at his
former Macau casino executive's claim that Adelson approved
prostitution at company properties in the Chinese gambling enclave.

Court documents filed Tuesday in Las Vegas accuse fired Sands
China Ltd. executive Steven Jacobs of trying to tarnish Adelson's
reputation to call attention to Jacob's claim that he was wrongly
dismissed.

A Jacobs lawyer declined immediate comment Wednesday.

Adelson owns the Venetian and Palazzo casinos in Las Vegas.

He's also calling for the Democratic Congressional Campaign
Committee to retract and apologize for what he calls false and
defamatory statements accusing him of profiting from prostitution
and donating "Chinese prostitution money" to GOP leaders.

DCCC official Jesse Ferguson says the committee is reviewing
Adelson's letter.
