Dario and the Strip Club Owner

This is Dario Herrera. When I came to Las Vegas on October 1, 2002, he was a Clark County Commissioner, a heavily-favored candidate for a U.S. congressional seat, and a rising star in the Democratic party. In fact, earlier that summer, as a visitor to Vegas, I had read an article predicting that he would one day be a vice presidential candidate.

A little over a month later, thanks to ethics allegations regarding a company that employed his wife, he lost the congressional election by an overwhelming margin to a then-unknown Republican.

Oh, but that was only the beginning for this guy. While he was County Commission Chairman, he met strip club owner Michael Galardi, who decided it would be fun and profitable if his establishments were delivered from pesky rules and regulations. To that end, he started paying Dario for favorable votes.

In addition to money, Dario was given whatever he wanted at Cheetah's Strip Club; and apparently he wanted lapdances and blowjobs. Yes, the strippers sucked his cock. Two of them have already testified in court that their boss, Michael Galardi, instructed them to take one for the team in the form of stepping up to Dario's mic.

Oh, I should have been a politician. No one ever says to me, "Todd, we would like our product to be displayed more prominently in this store. Candy from Scores will now swallow your salami." Yeah, Dario got caught and is looking at jail time, but the blowjobs, man...the blowjobs.

was there something wrong whit what he did???? I dont see the problem..... anything for blowjobs, right? Thats the rule as I understand it.... (might explain why im popular with the boys huh?)

Wow, that's some effed up stuff. Damn, that's some quality customer service.

From Elizabeth Berkeley?

I heard one of those strumpets gave him a blumpkin in a Southern Highlands golf course bathroom. I was also told by a reliable source that he has a fetish for being "tea bagged" by random vagrants. When this punk goes to jail, he'll be "giving back" all he received.

I feel so sorry for his soon to be ex-wife. Even though the news continually shows her holding his hand, you know damn well she's beating the crap out of him at home for what he did. And as soon as this is over, and he's carted off to jail, if there is justice, she's going to divorce his skanky ass. Can you imagine, being her, and sitting in that court room listening to those gals talk about blowing him? Geez, she's stupid for sticking it out!

This is a "sucking" story Todd. Thanks for sharing.

Blogger Chris said...

Don't worry there'll be plenty more blowjobs in his future. In the big house.

Doesn't that image make you feel better?

Blogger AMS said...

uuugh no it doesnt!

Blogger FRITZ said...

I'm almost thinking you have the moral capability of BEING a politician.

All for a blowjob, Todd. C'mon. We expect more from you....oh, wait.

No, we don't.

I was going to say the same about getting more blowjobs on the inside, but he'll be the one giving them this time.

It amazes me to think that people actually think they'll get away with this kind of thing. If they're so smart to come up with this 'grand plan' then surely they're smart enough to know they'll get caught....

Blogger Rachel said...

Dario had kinda got a soft, cute look about him, he'll do fine in the big house and be very popular I'm sure.

But I know Toddie, the blowjobs!


Blogger AWE said...

Strippers and blowjobs that should be a visa commercial.

Blogger JJ said...

He'll be giving them soon - in PMITAFP.

Blogger solethoughts said...

It makes me feel like I should have majored in poli sci as opposed to accounting. Damn.

Blogger miss kendra said...

wait, blowjobs aren't part of the job description?

are you kidding me?

Blogger Übermilf said...

He can still get those in prison.

Blogger Übermilf said...

Yeah, everybody said that already. Figures.

Hi, Todd.

Blogger yournamehere said...

better than a lousy French one, that's for sure.

that may be one of the reasons you're popular, babe.

you don't get service like that at McDonald's.

well, one of them was from Saved By the was the girl who played Lisa.

there was some hanky panky on the golf course, huh?

they may have had a Bill-Hillary "arrangement", but when he got busted I'm sure that flew out the window.

I'm edjutaining the blogosphere.

from conjugal visit. He'll end up in a white collar gated Hilton.

sometimes it does.

Blogger yournamehere said...

are you questioning my morality from reading a blog? I expected more from YOU.

I think when you involve strippers, many of whom are stupid, drug-addled, bitter humans, things are bound to go badly.

once again, I don't think he'll end up in much of a prison.

damn, it should be.


you're a smart guy. I don't think you would have been caught.

you aren't a stripper, are you?

at least you didn't comment again on the fanny-pack post.

And "Hi" right back at ya.

With dark lush looks such as these, the man deserves a blowjob from Mary fucking Magdalene.

I love the hipocrysy in this country. You get a knob-job for a few favorable decisions, you get your life ruined and dragged through the mud. You lie to start a war so your rich buddies can profit at the expense of American troops and our security, you get the fucking yokels putting your picture praying with Lincoln and Washington while the Christian Right proclaims you a savior!!

I dont see why sex cant be used to influence business - especially in that business. I'd be sure to have it written into my contract.

That sucks!!
