Join famous Las Vegas True Crime and Mob Author, Denny Griffin, along with his special guests, discussing all things MOB!
The popular 1995 movie Casino was a fictionalized account of the Las Vegas era of Chicago Outfit enforcer Tony Spilotro and Outfit associate Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal. One of the scenarios addressed in the film is the skimming of money from the casinos and into the pockets of several Midwest crime bosses. The skim was real, not a creation of Hollywood.
On tonight’s show co-hosts Andrew DiDonato and Denny Griffin will talk with retired FBI agent Lynn Ferrin. Lynn was the Las Vegas case agent for the skim investigations called Operation Strawman. Lynn will tell us the real story about how the skim was run, by whom, and how the feds brought it down. He’ll also comment on the movie and how law enforcement was portrayed in the film. If you’re a Mob buff, a Las Vegas or Casino fan, you won’t want to miss this show.
