Texas billionaire Charles Wyly killed in car accident (Big Republican Donor) By Associated Press, Updated: Monday, August 8, 5:09 AM
DALLAS — Texas billionaire and philanthropist Charles Wyly, whose family donated millions of dollars to Republican causes and Dallas arts projects, has died after a car accident in western Colorado, authorities said. He was 77.
Wyly, who maintained a home near Aspen, Colo., was turning onto a highway near the local airport when his Porche was hit by a sport utility vehicle Sunday, the Colorado State Patrol said in a statement. Wyly died at Aspen Valley Hospital.
In Texas, Wyly and his younger brother, Sam, along with their wives, gave $20 million to help build Dallas’ performing arts center. They also donated big, but quietly, to Republican causes: the brothers had said they’d given about $10 million to GOP candidates and causes since the 1970s.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry was one of the biggest political beneficiaries, receiving more than $300,000 combined from the Wylys since 2000, according to Texas Ethics Commission reports. According to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, the brothers had donated almost $2.5 million to more than 200 Republican candidates and committees at the federal level over the past two decades.
May the FORCE be with you!

5. And this is where we get majorly screwed.
The fortune will remain largely intact because WE BARELY TAX INHERITANCE. His will can set up funding for Rovian think tanks and Foxish propaganda into the next two centuries.
The money lives on doing whatever hellish thing they choose.

Didn't know who Charles Wyly was before read threading; just know from the title he was dead.
But some DU had to do their they're usual " spit on your grave " route
And some were smart enough not to.
But the usual ghouls did join in " their money is really our money, so lets go take it".CU's Paranormal Expert.

So this man donated twice as much money to a liberal cause, then he did to Republicans, and they still line up to spit on his grave?
I wouldn't piss on these people if they were on fire.In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
