Just weeks before billionaire hedge fund manager Ken Griffin said in an interview that the wealthy have “insufficient influence” in our political process,” he wrote a check for $100,000 to the Romney-aligned “Restore Our Future” super PAC, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission.
On February 9th, Griffin wrote a $100,000 check to the super PAC. In a recent interview with the Chicago Tribune, when asked if he thought rich people had too much influence on our political system, Griffin responded that, "I think they actually have an insufficient influence. Those who have enjoyed the benefits of our system more than ever now owe a duty to protect the system that has created the greatest nation on this planet."
If they have such insufficient influence, and he’s a billionaire, one has to wonder why he doesn’t write an even bigger check like Bill Koch or Julian Robertson have.
