Vikings stadium: Dayton says he was unaware of gambling industry's input on projections
Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton says he wasn't aware that projections about how much revenue new forms of charitable gaming would generate for the Vikings stadium were developed with input from the gambling industry.

But the head of the state gambling control board said the consultations with businesses -- which were needed to create a new model from scratch -- were discussed publicly repeatedly.

And a former lawmaker who pushed the charitable gaming legislation in the Minnesota House says he thinks the governor is trying to distance himself from projections that now look wildly optimistic.

"People are just looking for places to point blame, that's all," said John Kriesel, former Republican state representative from Cottage Grove.

DFL Krisel and GOP Rosen spearheaded the Vikings stadium.
