Pats owner gave money to governor

The New England Patriots footbridge controversy widens today, as the Boston Globe reveals that Pats owner Robert Kraft gave $12,000 in campaign contributions to Gov. Deval Patrick at the same time that Patrick was backing a plan to give $9 million in federal stimulus money to the bridge project.

In other stimulus-subsidy news, meanwhile, the Kalamazoo County commission met Wednesday to debate whether to build an $81 million downtown arena for the Kalamazoo Wings, which could use federal stimulus bonds to pay part of the cost. Commissioners were split on the proposal, but are going to keep investigating it.
