    Wilfs spread wealth to political groups

    [size=13pt]Wilfs spread wealth to political groups[/size]

    The family of the Vikings owner illustrates that the best way to open doors for a new stadium plans may be through the checkbook.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Interesting list. He was giving money to Paul Wellstone long before he actually purchased the Vikings. Wilf has just become a far more intriguing character in my book.

    I'll say it again.
    This isn't some used car salesman out of Texas.
    Wilf made his fortune while dealing with the politics in Jersey.
    He knows how to handle the Minnesota lawmakers.

    That may prove to be the case in the end, but right now he has proven squat.

    Only in America can you spend thousands to get millions. It is quite the scam they are running. Politics are so completely corrupted to it's very core.

    Your way off basis here...
    Its very obvious that Wilf is only trying to be the philanthropist that he is..sharing his wealth with the government at all.
    I'm sure there are absolutley no personal vendettas here.
