Michael Blutrich appeared tonight on 60 Minutes to discuss ratting out reputed mobsters who allegedly had their hidden hand in the topless club Scores he once owned at 333 East 60th Street.
Blutrich "worked undercover for a year, taping more than 100 conversations that prosecutors say contributed to indictments in January  of several members of the Gambino family on charges of extorting more than $1 million from Scores" as previously reported by Selwyn Raab for The New York Times.
In addition to operating Scores, Blutrich was a politically-connected lawyer who founded the Park Avenue firm Blutrich, Falcone & Miller with several former aides to Gov. Mario M. Cuomo, and among its attorneys was Andrew M. Cuomo who was a partner there from 1985 to 1988.
Blutrich pleaded guilty in December 1998 for his assorted crimes including a fraud scheme which prompted him to flip as then reported by Selwyn Raab for The New York Times. His government cooperation may have helped convict 60 people but did little to reduce his prison time, and Blutrich ended up getting a 16-year term as reported by Susan Clary for the Orlando Sentinel.
