Billionaire Melvin Simon, who started what became America’s largest shopping mall company and who was part owner of the NBA’s Indiana Pacers, died earlier this month at 82.
Simon was a big contributor to the Democratic Party.
He is survived by his wife, Bren Simon, who is a member of the George Soros-led Democracy Alliance. The Democracy Alliance is a donors’ collaborative that funds think tanks, media outlets, and activist groups on the left.
Mrs. Simon is president of MBS Associates LLC, a property management and development firm.
