I was asked to make a case that the Knoxville Public Safety Foundation should turn down a $100,000.00 donation pledged by the WWE owner Vince McMahon. It should be declined because the WWE made $35 million from Saudi Arabia, the donation would be made up of Saudi money.
Obviously many Americans believe the Saudi Arabia government was behind 9/11 attacks that murdered over 3000 Americans including many of your first responders.
The WWE was embarrassed by bad publicity it received when one of its top wrestlers Glenn Jacobs aka "Kane" ...after he was elected Mayor of Knox County, TN...was called out publicly about the WWE's long history of illegal use of steroids and illicit drugs and how that could affect him being mayor.
The donation pledge was nothing more than damage control. But please read...call the Knoxville foundation and urge them to turn down the WWE donation, it's blood money.
