Embarrassing. Dayton's administration has done a pathetic job in vetting "partners."

Where do they come up with 4 million in grant money to pass out? Suppose we should be prepared for many more stories of the government taking our money to spend it on stuff we don't want it spent on.

The entire tone of this story is accusatory. Beyond what's written here, I don't know this guy or anything about this story, but the STrib seems to be attempting to get readers to hate him. A JUDGE already ruled in this case and he has served his sentence. Do we want him to move on and be a productive member of society or trash him forever because of a mistake he made. The latter eems counterproductive in my opinion.

If the state has to deal with a con man to do business, then break your relationship, do you think maybe the stadium should be looked at that way also.

Think of this ,this guy stuck a gun in the face of a cop and cops can't even find that record for their safety because He got it erased. I Think this guy greases a wheel.

He must have had one helluva lawyer to pull off that plea bargain! And yes, Badgergirl, when you're taking taxpayer dollars, you are fully accountable for your past. You no longer have the private citizen's right to bury it.

Innocent until proven guilty, and you have the ability to serve your sentence and get your life back, depending on the crime. I thought that was the system we were operating under. I don't recall seeing that this person was involved in identity theft or financial fraud - where was that in the article?

Children's and FUMC should have been given funds. This is really outrageous!
