I hope for Denny's sake that he finds his way to jail before he gets a visit from the boys associated with casinos.

He will not be back at the top again. He is older now, and tired, his energy spent. He should have gotten out earlier. Did he make mistakes? Sure. But like the rest of us he seems to have been done in mostly by the economy. He will be able to hold on to some of his money and property. He should just take it and relax the rest of his life.

It would take a life time to figure out everything. Good luck Denny.

Hmmmmmm....... Where did all of that money go? How could Denny have p*ssed away basically as much as Petters did with his "empire," but now poor ol' Denny just doesn't have any to pay ANYONE back (car finance companies, banks, cities, marinas, etc.).
You would need to be a financial genius to figure out ways to have all of these businesses running, paying salaries, income taxes, property taxes, sales tax, ETC., then to just have it all crumble without any FRAUD involved !!! Nice move trying to keep it in the civil courts, Denny, given how things will go for your buddy and sometimes business partner, Tommy Petters. ;>)

Who's Denny's bankruptcy attorney? Tom Prescott? "THIS IS ALL WE DO, AND WE DO IT WELL!" Good luck, Den. I'm with you from the back of the limo, all the way up to the front, buddy.

Denny has had plenty of time to hide his money. I don't understand why the Feds aren't looking into this. Maybe he is one of the "other" unknowns in the Petters case? I only hope. There is no way that one person could handle all this on his own. Lots of shady things happening here.

Glad to see Denny had no problem gambling away other people's money, while his employees wonder if they'll ever get paid for the work they did.
