Courthouse wags have grown awfully quiet about the status of the IRS tax investigation of former Las Vegas City Councilman Michael McDonald. McDonald’s relationship with embattled former topless cabaret mogul Rick Rizzolo and his lawyers is part of that investigation.
These days, Rizzolo keeps busy defending himself in U.S. District Court in a civil case involving his nonpayment to Crazy Horse Too beating victim Kirk Henry. Rizzolo agreed to pay Henry and his wife $10 million and to date has paid just $1 million.
Meanwhile, McDonald’s tax status has been the topic of discussion by the a federal grand jury, according to others contacting by the IRS in the ongoing investigation.
Does the silence surrounding McDonald mean he’s finally in the clear? Or is this just the calm before the storm?
