They’re calling it the Las Vegas Law Enforcement and
Organized Crime Museum. But, as Mayor Oscar Goodman said Thursday, all the branding is “Mob Museum” and that’s what “everyone will call it.” They changed it because former local FBI boss Ellen Knowlton, now heading up the endeavor, told him “Mob Museum” might not be looked upon favorably by the FBI, which is now providing exhibits. How nice that the former FBI chief could assist the former mob lawyer in glorifying his former clients. Added Goodman: “I think in the end, law enforcement may have won.” Against a mob he once said never existed, now says left “when I became mayor,” but now will be honored in a downtown museum. Lovely.
