Chris Hansen Caught In Arena Scandal
S.O.S: Chris, have a seat behind this
hedge. Chris Hansen, weíve been following your
activities and it appears you
and your hedge fund has been targeting this
very young stock. She may not
even be out of puberty.
S.O.S: Do you mind looking at the
Chris? We have your computer records.
Actually, Chris, weíre here to talk about
more serious allegations. You know that
basketball team in Sacramento you were
trying to buy and move to Seattle?
S.O.S: After your offer was nixed
the league, it appears you made a donation to
a group rallying against the
proposed new arena in Sacramento. Can I offer
you a Mento? My daughter once
cornered her grade school market on Mentos.
Youíd be proud. People in
California say you broke some laws. They say
you funneled a donation to scuttle
their arena project through the law firm of
Loeb and Loeb.
S.O.S: The Loeb brothers? I
but I heard they had rather longÖ erÖ
whatever. Anyway, according to the
Sacramento Bee, you made a $ 100,000
contribution to STOP, Sacramento
Taxpayers Opposed to Pork. We get it, Chris.
Youíre a bunch of Seattle
S.O.S: Sleep Train? We heard that
arena used to get loud. You canít get loud in
a Sleep Train. If they build a
new arena, they need to give it a name worthy
of rock out loudness, right,
S.O.S: No, Chris, sit down again. We
you we had records. Hey, the cameraís over
here. Chris, there are those who say
youíve been meddling in another cityís
affairs. Youíve been trying to get
in Sacramentoís pants, havenít you Chris?
S.O.S: If Sacramento taxpayers are
to subsidize a new arena to the tune of $ 258
million, who are you to say they
shouldnít be able? Why did you try to
stop their project?
S.O.S: So thatís what the STOP partition
and Loeb boys deal was about, you want to
