As Bruce Ratner went up against critics of his mini-city at an enviromental hearing Tuesday night, there was new information about how his company funded the leading advocates of the plan, a "community group" called BUILD. The Daily News reported last month that IRS documents showed Ratner's company gave BUILD $5 million, an assertion both sides denied. Now, says the Daily News, they admit Ratner's company has provided the group more than $100,000.
