Wow, just wow. I can't help thinking of a couple dozen politicians off the top of my head who should be doing life without parole. Meanwhile they arrest this guy. What a racket.

Thanks for posting this. I hadn't heard it yet.
Don't believe anything until it is officially denied.

Well, he seems like a cool guy from the couple interviews I've heard, but if he was doing insider trading, he ought to be arrested.

The Feds have been trying to get him for years. He is going to prison for this one. Luckily for him it will be a Club-Fed. He will clean out all of the other well to do prisoners in every form of gambling imaginable.

He's a significant part of the reason the local government is crooked. Insider trading was hardly the worst of the creep's sleaze. A "cool guy" of the sort that used to be known as "goodfellas" who was in the business of doing the washy-washy of money for no-neck bent-nose thugs, bribery greasing his government facilitated land scams that have cost people living in the area hundreds of millions, and on and on. If his transparently ridiculous cover story act as a supposed genius sports bettor and nice guy who is just being unfairly picked on has one single ounce of truth then I'm Jesus Christ & Madame Curie.

I think this is his third felony indictment? I'm starting to lose count with this goombah. None of them coming from the local Southern Nevada law & justice system, and that's definitely no accident. I hope he doesn't beat the rap on this one, and that he drops the soap in the shower a lot. At least once for every buck he got from raping everyone else who wasn't in on his crooked schemes as part of his *ahem* "family" business. Which was not about gambling on sports. That isn't where the money was from, and would not amount to a rounding error in it.

But he apparently did have one of the world's most effective public relations assistants coaching him and booking him for image polishing media events & "charitable" stunts, or perhaps it is that there's a larger than average part of the local audience that's just unusually eager to swallow his particular line of bullspit no matter how thinly dressed up it is.

ADDENDUM: Oh, and I see the pro golfer Phil Mickelson got into this by being in debt with *ahem* loans from good 'ol Billy? Hello?!?! Move along, nothing to see there, no sireee.

If you are saying that you don't believe he will do time I will bet that he does.

I would take 7-5 for up to 250.
With the stipulation that if ball is revoked for any reason - that is not considered jail time
We would only count an actual please agreement for jail time or a conviction with a jail time sentence

I will bet 100 at even money. My biggest concern is he passes away before the case is adjudicated.
