07:04 AM ET 09.10 | In Sacramento, Chris Hansen has a reputation to repair. For weeks, [Hansen] has been vilified by Sacramento Kings fans for financing a signature-gathering campaign to force a public vote on the city's arena subsidy. Now the man who tried to buy the Kings and move them to Seattle is trying to make amends. On the same day Hansen and two political operatives agreed to pay a $50,000 fine to state election officials for failing to properly report the source of funding behind the ballot measure effort, Hansen announced Monday that he would "take steps to prevent" the signatures his money financed from being used. In a statement released on his website, Hansen also said a Los Angeles law firm funneled his money to the signature campaign "without my knowledge or consent."

Sounds like it might get worse for Hansen. What he did sounds fishy and illegal. I won't be surprise if he had a deal w/ the LA law firm. "funnel"
