Mob Experience fuels conspiracies

The Las Vegas Mob Experience will feature some tantalizing organized crime links to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Jay Bloom, managing partner of the attraction that opens at the Tropicana in December, said his group has acquired a videotaped death-bed confession of a 96-year-old mobster who told his family he had information about Kennedy's death in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963.

Bloom wouldn't go into specifics but said the video "just arrived" from a member of a mob family.

Along with the video, the Mob Experience's collection of 1,000 artifacts will include mob chief Meyer Lansky's address book containing the name of Jack Ruby, the Dallas nightclub operator who shot alleged JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald.

Conspiracy theorists claim Ruby was a mob operative who shot Oswald to keep him from giving away details linking organized crime to Kennedy's assassination...

"Growing up as a kid, my grandfather shared many stories that became legend," said Meyer Lansky II, grandson of Meyer Lansky.

"I'm excited to share this so that people will get to know the Meyer Lansky I knew."

Here is your 96 year old.:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vincent_Alo

Vincent "Jimmy Blue Eyes" Alo (May 26, 1904 – March 9, 2001) was a New York mobster and member of the Genovese crime family who set up casino operations with mob associate Meyer Lansky in Florida and Cuba....

One of Alo's crew fronted the Camelot Supper Club in mid-town Manhattan. His name was Joe Cataldo and his summer home was

in the same small upstate N.Y. town where George Senator and G. David Schine came from. Cataldo's phone number was

found on one of Ruby's phone bills. Alo did time for the Scopitone stock fraud. A William Morris agency man, George Wood was fatally injured in the Camelot Club after he showed too many people the Scopitone player he imported from France along with US distribution rights. After he died in November, 1963, Alvin Malnik, always close to Alo, emerged with the rights to Scopitone and made his first million via the stock scam.

Ahh. I thought it was gonna be Bonanno. But he died at 97. This, then, only adds to the list of mobsters who claimed or were purported to have claimed mob involvement. Is it time we listen?
