Zimmermann Above the Fold
The Star Tribune:
In a taped FBI interview played in federal court in Minneapolis on Friday, Dean Zimmermann at first refused to acknowledge he took the money from developer Gary A. Carlson, then said the cash was in an envelope at his home.
Finally, he conceded he'd spent it because he was "shuffling money all the time." He denied he received a bribe.
"Developers are people who have money," Zimmermann told the agents. "You expect people who have money to make contributions."
The trial continues next week.
