Operation G-Sting began almost by accident. The FBI was tapping phones at Crazy Horse Two for a tax investigation. The bureau soon stumbled onto another Strip Club owner who was paying Clark County Commissioners cash and other favors to strengthen his business and harass his competitors.

Now he's back in Las Vegas and talks with Mitch Fox of Vegas PBS.
