Steve Wynn is not used to losing.

With two 5-star hotel-casinos in Vegas and two more in Macau, he has permanent street cred among the uber-rich in the world. He pretty much gets what he wants, usually with just a knowing nod or a snap of his fingers.

But Wynn is a beaten man today, turning over his king o0n the chess board after voters in Foxboro, Mass., peed all over his plan to put a resort casino across the street from Gillette Stadium. Voters elected two anti-casino selectmen in the town election, and Wynn decided to fold up his tent.

Here in Mass., no one is really sure exactly why the plan (Wynn would lease property owned by Patriots boss Bob Kraft) never got much traction. But Foxboro is a moderately wealthy community with low (4 percent) unemployment, so the promise of jobs didn't resonate as much as it might have. Not even the possibility of $15 million in casino tax money directly to the town was enough to turn the tide.

Wynn has a long history of bullying anyone who doesn't agree with him. Reporters, blackjack dealers, union organizers, business partners ... he doesn't discriminate, and he almost always gets his way.

Not this time.

I was glad to hear this. Steve Wynn is an fool. He gets his way here in Las Vegas because he's got all the politicians, judges and zoning people on his payroll. He considers a bribe just part of doing business. He finally found people he couldn't bribe that don't want their community turned into a ghetto.

Steve Wynn has had organized crime connections for years in the USA and he's branched out into organized crime in the far east. When he walks through his properties, the dealers at the tables have to cover up the slot where they put the bills in because Steve Wynn tries to stick his person in the hole. He likes young, skanky stripper types and milfs.
