"Federal authorities arrested 20 people Wednesday — seven of whom they
said had direct links to the Gambino and Bonnano crime families — on
charges that they illegally brought women from Russia and other Eastern
European countries to New York to work as dancers at mob-run strip
clubs. Several of the defendants also arranged for many of the
women to enter into sham marriages with U.S. citizens, according to the
indictment, which was unsealed Wednesday in Manhattan." - MSNBC, Nov. 30, 2011.
