The inconvenient truth about Joseph Conforte


Joseph Conforte was an habitual criminal, pathological, and cunning for he bested the best lawmen in the United States, and swindled the IRS too.

He’s been called evil, Reno’s Frankenstein, and a corrupter of the innocent, but when asked Conforte says he’s just a businessman like anyone else. He says he’s not Mafia.

He was also a philanthropist and a statesman, a boxing manager/promoter, the outspoken leader of the legal prostitution movement, and co-owner of the world famous Mustang Ranch brothel with his wife, Sally.

MR. MADAME, the long awaited book on Joseph and Sally Conforte and the Mustang Ranch brothel is not available at this time.
