I don't aspire

I don't aspire to this kind of lobbying though. (Unlike what I said in this post.)

Additionally, the Capital Athletic Foundation he created (which received thousands from Indian tribes) directed 80% of its funds to Eshkol Academy (the all-boys school in Silver Spring he created), and some funds to pay a monthly stipend and the rental fees of a jeep for a friend in the West Bank.
