Campaign Finance reports filed today showthe Vikings spent$350,000 on lobbying legislators to support a new stadium between June and December. That figure doesn't include salaries paid to eight lobbyists. That data will not be disclosed until March.
If an institution has this much money to spend on political access, it should have the money to support itself without taking money from others. If an institution can only get legislation passed in its favor by paying for access and paying off politicians in a manner that normal people could never match, that isn't a capitalistic system.
