U.S. Government's Mob File Up For Auction
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
You, too, can own a U.S. government file on the mob. Back in the '60s, Robert Kennedy was leading investigations of the mafia, and the folder from the era contained information and mug shots of men like Carlo Gambino and Meyer Lansky. In the 1990s, somebody accidentally left a copy of the file in the back of a New York City taxi cab. Now it's up for auction with an estimated sale price of $10,000 or more: an offer you can't refuse.
It's MORNING EDITION.
