Ken Griffin is getting a little better... this philanthropy stuff. Even though he's still giving money to the super-rich, at least he's now taking pity on those less fortunate than himself. From an article in the Chicago Tribune:

Republican governor candidate Bruce Rauner has received the largest single cash donation of his campaign, today reporting the deposit of $2.5 million from billionaire hedge-fund founder Ken Griffin.

Griffin, as I mentioned in an earlier post, is worth an estimated $5.2 billion. Rauner, a piker in comparison, says his net worth is only in the "hundreds of millions of dollars."

Who will Griffin select for his next bestowal, some poor sap worth only tens of millions?
