The revelations from a court case in New Jersey that Zygi Wilf may not be a straight shooter should come as no surprise. What is surprising is that at this late date in the deal the governor has tapped the Dorsey law firm to practice due diligence. I would expect this kind of disingenuous behavior from the other side of the aisle, but not from a DFL Leviathan.
If this deal turns out to be a white elephant, there won’t be a fig leaf big enough to cover up what stadium backers wished would remain private. The harangue “we might lose the Vikings” rings hollow when you are dealing with a proven cheat and large amounts of taxpayer’s money. If this ballpark deal does head south, I will waste my vote on an independent candidate the next time around.
