From a headline story I wrote for the LV Tribune October 2005 >>
Last week's indictment of three men with Mob ties in the gangland-style murder of gambling ship magnate Gus Boulis during Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff's take-over of the gambling cruise ship line revealed deep Mob connections at the highest levels of the Republican Party.

One of the principals in the scandal, Abramoff partner Adam Kidan, was the co-owner and general counsel of a Caribbean island hotel-casino with Rosario Spadaro, called "a member of the Sicilian Mafia" in an Associated Press story reporting his recent arrest in Italy in a major investigation into international arms trafficking.

While Abramoff's Indian gaming troubles may be getting the most publicity, his major 'area of concern' is where the real scandal resides. Involvement with Mob-run casino boats may turn out to be a faux pas, even for Republicans.

Florida's cruises-to-nowhere represent "the largest unregulated gambling industry in the United States," said Bill Thompson, a professor of gambling at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas and nationally recognized expert on the industry, in an interview in the Miami Herald. Thus the potential for both 'skimming' of unreported cash as well as the laundering of illicit inflow monies is enormous and conveniently close to Governor Jeb Bush's Florida.
