31 May 2017
Vegas existed before the mob came to town but not in any way that would be familiar to the millions of people who flock to the city today. It took the vision of legendary mobster Bugsy Siegel to start the transformation of Vegas and his monumental Flamingo Hotel became the anchor of “the strip.”
Follow the influence of the mob in Vegas from Siegel through the “Strawman Trials” which today’s gaming giants claim marked the end of mob influence in Vegas. See how Jimmy Hoffa worked with the mob to help build the heart of Vegas while attracting the attention of J. Edgar Hoover.
Trace the story of legendary front-man Allen Glick the basis for the hit movie Casino and meet mob lawyers, Nevada officials, gambling moguls and entertainers who reveal the hidden history of Vegas. From the Flamingo to the Luxor, this is the complete story of how the mob exploited legal gambling to make billions of dollars.
Translated from Dutch NOS TV:
The French justice department has launched an investigation into irregularities in the financing of a commercial mission to Las Vegas. It also included President Macron, then Minister of Economic Affairs.
The trip was organized by Business France, a group representing French business interests. Destination was a major technology fair, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Macron wanted to promote new French technology companies. However, the trip may have been financed illegally.
Macron gave a speech to the CES, but according to French officials, he had nothing to do with the organization of the trip.
On July 13, after only a few days’ debate, the French National Assembly approved the draft enabling act presented by French President Emmanuel Macron’s government on July 10. The Assembly is thus authorizing the government to drastically rewrite labor laws by decree, without any further input from parliament. This vote, newspapers wrote, marked the start of Macron’s term in office: here.
