In the wake of the recent arrest of over a hundred reputed mobsters, could he soon be the once, and future, celebrated mob attorney?
As reported in Norm’s RJ column, ears perked up the other night inside the Suncoast when Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman was asked about the largest East Coast mob crackdown in history.
“He chuckled and said, ‘I’ve already heard from three of them,’ ” according to Las Vegan Sherry Lombardi, who was entering Salvatore’s with Paul Boisvert when they chatted up the mayor.
Is the soon-to-be 72-year-old Mayor wanting another shot at being one of the country’s most celebrated mob attorneys?
Wcontacted Friday, Goodman said he was embellishing, but only a bit.
He has heard from someone who was calling on someone’s behalf, he said.
When asked if he is considering it, Goodman responded, “Fortunately, I’m a lucky fellow. I’ve been talking to a lot of people. Life after mayor will be very interesting.”
According to Norm, the offers, he said, include being an executive producer, working for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, publishing a children’s book, heading up a business development or opening a speakeasy in downtown.
