Hansen Revealed As Donor To Anti-Arena Effort Involving NBA Kings

Former NBA Kings bidder Chris Hansen's attempts to build a sports arena and bring a team back to Seattle "took a major stumble Friday when it was revealed he was the secret donor who contributed $100,000 to a petition campaign to force a vote on a proposed new basketball arena in Sacramento." The disclosure "touched off a firestorm." Hansen in a statement said, "I made a mistake I regret" (SEATTLE TIMES, 8/17).
