Kirk Kerkorian, An Armenian Mafiosi and Stock Market Manipulator in America

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirk_Kerkorian
"Kirk Kerkorian (b. June 6, 1917) is a US billionaire ...
Alleged connections to organized crime
The Caesars Palace land had previously been owned by
Myford Irvine, heir to the Irvine Estate in Orange County.
Irvine was shot to death after begging his estate for a large
amount of cash within hours. This was ruled a suicide but
many suspected it involved the Mafia, which was dominant
in Las Vegas at the time. The same year Kerkorian was recorded
by the Manhattan DA regarding a payment to a major Mafia
figure whose phone was tapped. Kerkorian avoided New
York for years so as not to have to cooperate with law enforcement.
Kerkorian was asked about his Mafia ties by Forbes in his last
major interview in 1970 and has avoided the press since.
When he bought MGM he was again accused of having Mafia ties.
The Flamingo had been controlled by Meyer Lansky. Kerkorian
worked closely with Michael Milken who was convicted of
manipulating MGM's stock. Kerkorian later sold MGM to a man
with known Mafia ties who jumped bail and has not returned
to the United States. This also led to the collapse of the
French bank Credit Lyonnais. The failure of Credit Lyonnais
was said to have cost the French government 5 percent of their GDP that year.
....
Investment in General Motors
Kerkorian holds 9.9 percent of G.M. shares. According to press
accounts from June 30, 2006, Kerkorian has suggested that
Renault acquire a 20 percent stake in GM to rescue GM from itself.
A private letter sent to Rick Wagoner was released to the public
to add pressure upon the General Motors executive hierarchy.
Those talks have since failed.
....
Kerkorian has donated millions of dollars to improve Armenia, his mother nation.
....
Pellicano scandal
On August 10, 2006, the Los Angeles Times reported that
Kerkorian's attorneys have been sued by his former wife
Lisa's attorney because of their connection to former
high-profile private investigator Anthony Pellicano, who
presently faces a 110-count federal indictment for racketeering,
wiretapping, witness tampering, and other charges.
Lisa's attorney alleges that Kerkorian's lawyers hired Pellicano
to wiretap telephone calls illegally between him and Kerkorian's
ex-wife in order to gain a tactical advantage in the divorce proceedings.

"... His investment firm Tracinda said in a statement that it was
cancelling plans to buy extra GM shares ...
The news of Mr York's resignation and Mr Kerkorian's decision not
to buy any more stock saw GM's shares lose 7% of their value on Friday. ..."
