An undisclosed source in Washington revealed yesterday that recent unemployment figures and home sales decline had caused HUD to come up with some drastic measures. He indicated that HUD had contacted Nevada brothel owner, Joe Conforte, who is presently living in Brazil to avoid prosecution in this country, and told him that charges would be dropped, if he returned to this country as an advisor to HUD.
His area of expertise in prostitution would be put to use in finding some common denominator between housing and prostitution as the two go hand in hand.
They further indicated that they had approached Bernard Madoff to see if there was any interest on his part to arrange financing for the proposed operation. They indicated to him that an "early release" might be arranged or that an office and staff would be made available to him in prison.
HUD did not go in to the details of their plan but one can only speculate on the outcome of a prostitution king, a money generator, housing available and unemployed women.
The aging Conforte, former owner of the Triangle Ranch and the Mustang Ranch, was quoted as saying, "Eet wuld be bueno to get back to the US. I haff many friends there and of course mucho dinero (money) buried that the IRS knows nada about. I guess I have peeked up some of the language since I have been down here."
It will be interesting to see the outcome of this alliance.
