I first broke this story in 1999, concerned that organized crime had infiltrated the Clark County DA's Office, state judiciary, and the LV Metro Police Department.
My stories made national news and helped inspire investigations by the FBI and IRS.
To make sure he didn't, on July 10, I filed an Ethics Complaint against Goodman pointing out his serious conflicts of interest regarding Rizzolo.
Because Goodman was forced to abstain by my complaint, the playing field was leveled allowing Mayor Pro Tem Gary Reese to preside over the meeting and shut down the Crazy Horse. The bar miraculously re-opened, but within a year was shut down again.
And if it’s ever discovered that he holds hidden ownership in other businesses or automobiles, then he’ll have even more explaining to do. Magistrate Judge Nancy Koppe ordered Rizzolo released on his own recognizance Thursday with several conditions, including surrendering his passport and restricting his travel to Nevada.

July 10, 2014 By JEFF GERMAN LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL Former Crazy Horse Too owner Rick Rizzolo pleaded not guilty Thursday in federal court to two felony charges of attempting to evade more than .5 million in employment and income taxes.
