LOS ANGELES (AP) – The company that is moving quickly on a plan to build a stadium that could host a Southern California NFL team has given more than $118,000 in campaign contributions to officials in the city where it would be located.
The Los Angeles Times reported Sunday that campaign finance forms show most of the money went to Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts Jr. He’s a major supporter of the stadium plan.
The donations came during four different campaigns starting in 2006. The rest of the donations went to a pair f city councilmen.
San Francisco-based Hollywood Park Land Co. is developing the proposed 80,000-seat stadium. St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke has been a partner in the company since last year.
Butts says the contributions have not influenced the speed of the project.
