"While many Republicans have darkly alluded to tribal gaming interests clogging the works for the stadium, few have named the powerbrokers in the Republican Party of Minnesota like Wisconsin dwelling fellow travelers like PAC honcho Steve Knuth who lobby or "public affair" for those interests.

After all, it's rather difficult to murmur about the dirty dealings of a racial out-group like American Indians if you identify those in your own party, like Jack and Annette Meeks, Ted Grindal, and former chair Chris Georgacus, who include tribal business interests as clients."

Indeed, which is why only a few stray Vikings fanatics are daring to openly go after the Meeks and their allies on this issue. Though I can imagine some Republicans wouldn't mind tanking a stadium if they could get it blamed on a Sutton ally. Just to make sure that Sutton's faction takes a silver bullet to go with the garlic-coated stake.
