Description

Sam Katz, the mayor of Winnipeg, is the owner the local minor league baseball team. The team plays on a field " built with substantial public funds." Despite their popularity, Katz claimed that the team made no money and could not pay back the money it borrowed. However, the investigation showed that the mayor " pays himself a substantial salary, and also runs expenses, like nannies for his children on the team payroll."
