What is Cory Merrifield from @SaveTheVikesOrg Talking About?

It’s not that I don’t trust Vikings stadium welfare queen, Cory Merrifield, it’s just that I can’t figure out why he appears to be making stuff up about me. For example:

Cory Merrifield of @SaveTheVikesOrg Making Stuff Up

Frankly, I’m not sure what he’s talking about. Have I ever suggested that Zygi Wilf is asking for one billion dollars from the public? Perhaps Cory Merrifield doesn’t understand how to read stacked bar charts like this one:

Zygi Wilf's Deal Sweetener in Red

Cory, in case that chart didn’t make sense to you, here is another shot at explaining it: The purple and red portions are what Zygi Wilf has offered to pay toward a stadium for his private business. The part in gold is the welfare he is requesting.

Seriously, if I’ve ever suggested that Wilf is asking for a billion dollars, please point me to where I said that so I can correct it immediately. I don’t want to mislead anyone about how much of a welfare queen Zygi Wilf is attempting to be.

Update: I’ve asked Cory to support his accusation:

Question for @SaveTheVikesOrg

Will he? Can he?

  1. Easy. You said the Vikings are asking for $1 billion in public funding. The cost of the stadium is a little over $900 million. With the Vikings’ contribution being over $400 million, wouldn’t that mean the public’s contribution would be roughly $500 million or less?
