Bloomberg Labels Rex Sinquefield an "Oligarch"
|I'm the king of my world! Woo-hoo! Yee-haw! Yes! Yes! Yes!|
Something about it sounds so sinister. So Russian. So worthy of a man cruising around on a yacht like this one that we never thought of applying it to our very own Rex.
Leave it to Bloomberg (of all media outlets!) to tell it like is. In a profile this month of the man who has spent tens of millions of dollars trying to do away with local and state income taxes in Missouri, the financial wire-service writes:
"While he maintains he isn't a billionaire and won't divulge his net worth, he is using his wealth to go over the heads of the political establishment. He is a new American oligarch, appealing directly to voters for help in reshaping his home state to fit his economic beliefs."Read the entire Bloomberg story here.
