CHICAGO – The 45 Committee – a political action committee started by Cubs owner Todd Ricketts and Las Vegas Sands owner Sheldon Adelson – is now running ads promoting Kavanaugh's confirmation. 

Ricketts is serving as the RNC's Finance Chairman, and financially supported the Trump campaign after his first choice Scott Walker and second choice Ted Cruz dropped out of the 2016 presidential campaign.

Adelson has donated over $55 million to keep Republicans in control of Congress – bringing the billionaire's total contributions to various Republican causes above $100 million, according to the New York Times, possibly making him the largest single donor in American politics today.

  1. Well this is a trifle odd, seeing as openly lesbian, Homosexual, Laura Ricketts – of the Cubs-owning mega-millions, Ricketts family, has vetoed Cubs Shortstop, Addison Russell, from joining the Cubs in post-season play — in which they’ve been bombing.
    And who for leftist-feminist silly reasons, came out against Brewers relief pitcher, Josh Haider, for having made anti-homosexual tweets when he was in High School.
    Well the creepy Ricketts family gave in to their homosexual daughter.
    The Milwaukee Brewers, did not.
    And they just won the NL Central tonight.
    The PC Cubs, under lesbian Laura Ricketts are languishing.
    Why should any of us – long time Cubs fans, remain fans, under this weirdo, in-bred, West Virginian, Ricketts entourage?
    The Wrigley’s were real Americans, by comparison to these sick West Virginia yokels!
