The thing is if he pushed the bill and it came up that he was given 75k in campaign contributions by ZUFFA, then people would start questioning that.
My thought is that this initial snub is just being done so that when he pushes it through in the future they can't say anything. He'll always have the defense of "75k yeah I accepted the gift, and if you look at the records I left it off the bill that year too".
who knows what these whacko politicians are thinking. I can't imagine the Knicks and The Mets are bringing in any cash.
