Tom Drexler is a wealthy entrepreneur. Notorious for his hatred of politicians, Drexler has a vendetta against Mayor Adams for promoting a waterfront shopping development on the precise spot Drexler wants to erect a stadium-arena complex. When Adams opens up an eight-point lead in the mayoral race, Gwen Eaton approaches Drexler to finance a media blitz in response. Drexler later hands Darren Richmond a $50,000 check, saying that he wants Adams to lose -- and to know he helped make it happen. Soon after, Richmond asks Drexler for $5 million to help rebuild the Somali community, noting that Drexler has a better chance of someday getting his stadium if the public associates him with philanthropy rather than drugs and prostitutes. While investigating the high-end Beau Soleil escorts who operated out of the casino where Rosie was last seen alive, Holder learns that Drexler has two prior arrests for soliciting prostitutes.
