Al Capone killed people, bribed politicians, ran whore houses and operated a crime syndicate, not unlike Gawker Media.
What brought Al Capone down? THE TAX DEPARTMENT!
All of Gawker’s Tax filings and records have now been published in the Gawker Bankruptcy case and the IRS is only getting started. Not only the IRS but te New York Tax Department are coming FBI-like after Gawker’s sketchy financial finagling.
Gawker ran money through so many trusts, shell companies and bizarre foreign outlets that even old Al Capone would be jealous.
Expect a long battle. The Trump White House hates Gawker for the hundreds of attacks that Gawker ran against them. Prime Clerk staff say that this “..may be a record-breaking case”.
