With the Xyience fiasco still simmering on the stove, professional shit-disturber Rich Bergeron has decided to spend some of his free time digging into the Fertitta family’s mob history. His first article on the subject is up and covers the 1950’s where the Fertittas were part of the Maceo family’s Texas mob.

Personally, I’m not all that surprised or shocked that a Vegas gambling family has it’s roots in organized crime. But what should be interesting to read (if Bergeron isn’t slapped with another multi-million dollar lawsuit before he can release it) is the next few installments which plan to air connections that are much more recent than the roaring 50’s:

The mob ties with the Fertitas is common knowledge yes, but the article has some nice bits of info that not everyone would know about i thought.

I'm not saying there hasn't been a few guys working in a gang mentality, some stupid, some more advanced. The bottom line is you can't rely on rats looking to get out of jail when Feds tell them to say "XYZ". Rats and will say anything to get an easier prison sentence. Every person that said they were involved in the Mafia was a person looking to feed prosecutors whatever they wanted to hear.

Better yet anyone caught on tapes talking about some king of organized criminal empire was tooting their own horn to sound like they are a part of this fantasy, furthering their toughguy criminal reputation. There is no Mafia.

I don't have to prove there isn't, you have to prove there is... I welcome your input.

Since the Fertitta's are part of the mob maybe now everytime they cut someone from the roster they will go swimmin with the fishes
