Ramsey County Commissioner, Tony Bennett, has been a leader in the effort to redistribute his county’s wealth to out of state Vikings franchise owner, Zygi Wilf. It turns out that not everyone in on board with Bennett’s behavior. In fact, even Bennett realizes this, since he admitted to the press that public funding for a Vikings stadium will not stand a chance if put to a vote.

Yet Bennett pushed on in his effort to forcibly extract money from Ramsey County residents for Zygi Wilf’s benefit. That is, until the state legislature said that they would not support forcible taxation, thus avoiding a Ramsey County Tea Party movement in the traditional sense.
