The Plutocracy Report: Billionaire Sheldon Adelson Narrows the Republican Presidential Field for the Minions

Minion, as in sense 1.

Billionaire Sheldon Adelson Assesses the 2016 Field. (National Journal, 9/11/2013)

Excerpt: Adelson’s words carry the weight of his wallet. The casino magnate—he is the chairman and CEO of the Las Vegas Sands Corp.—is one of the biggest donors in Republican politics, having spent with his wife nearly $100 million on the 2012 elections. Forbes estimates Adelson is the 15th-richest person in the world, worth $26.5 billion.
