MORNING LINE: TOPLESS WAR: Limousine drivers also make a score
Diverting strip club customers for cash, the main allegation of Beller’s lawsuit and complaint to the state Taxicab Authority, is big business for many limo drivers, sources say. They can haul more customers, rake in more kickbacks. And all they have to do is spread the wealth back to the doormen, who bird-dog the customers and steer them away from the cab stand.
At $50 per person, a limo with six riders can generate $300, a piece of which is returned to the door boss.
Here’s the best part: megaresort management knows about it, sources and multiple hotels tell me. The unions, which provide the door personnel, know about it. The cab and limo companies know about it. Of course the Taxicab Authority knows about it.
The Internal Revenue Service, I suppose, also knows about it.
Now you know about it.
