Sheldon Adelson’s Pro-Trump’s Website Attacked by Hackers

    The website of a pro-Trump group started by Sheldon Adelson was forced to temporarily shut down following an attack by hackers.

    The 45 Committee, is a PAC funded by Adelson and fellow billionaire Todd Ricketts. During the elections it raised $4 million to run pro-Trump ads. The PACs website was hacked on Monday, according to CNN and some of its content was altered. A banner reading “Make America S****y Again,” was added to the homepage and a title “Black Lives Matter” was inserted as well. In addition, some sections were renamed to “Steve Bannon is a White Supremacist” and “Sessions is Deemed Too Racist for Federal Judge.”

    The website is now back up after the anti-Trump slogans were removed.
