Jon Ferraro, a Milwaukee businessman who owns multiple ventures including strip clubs, a comedy venue and a bar and restaurant on the city's northwest side, was "indicted last year in a sprawling racketeering case targeting the Russian mob" as reported by the Journal Sentinel: "Ferraro was indicted in federal court in California with seven other men, several in the strip club business, as part of a case involving money laundering and cocaine dealing that stretched from coast to coast and grew to a dozen defendants." Although "details about the California case, which was dubbed 'Russian Laundry,' became public more than a year ago, Ferraro's role in the scheme has not been disclosed," and "legal experts say the fact Ferraro' name has not been publicly disclosed could indicate . . . he could be cooperating with federal law enforcement."
