What They're Saying: Rocco Commisso

"We talked about what help he needs, and so far, frankly, he hasn’t asked for anything. To the extent he has greater needs, he’s unemployed, the poor guy. He’s got a family of six people. He’s going for a job that doesn’t pay anything. It’s nothing wrong with private citizens, private organizations, private companies, supporting candidates. It’s legal in this country, and to the extent it’s legal I’ll do whatever I want to do, frankly. I was already spending millions of dollars on this lawsuit [against U.S. Soccer].”
