Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
The Universal Life Church Monastery has ordained former Las Vegas Mayor and mob lawyer Oscar B. Goodman. His ordination as a ULC wedding minister comes just weeks before the opening of the new Mob Museum in Las Vegas, NV. On Feb. 14, Goodman will preside over several marriages at the Mob Museum to celebrate St. Valentine’s Day and the museum’s grand opening.
Goodman began his career as a public defense attorney, representing famous mobsters like Meyer Lansky, Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal, and Anthony Spilotro. Goodman later became Mayor of Las Vegas, serving the city from 1999-2011. He now serves as chairman of the host committee for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, and oversaw the purchase and transformation of the historic Las Vegas old federal courthouse into the Mob Museum.
Recently named “Las Vegas’ best new attraction” by Travel and Leisure, the Mob Museum will officially open its doors on Feb. 14. Goodman will perform his first ceremonies as a ULC wedding officiant inside the old historic downtown courtroom for the seven lucky couples who win the Married at the Mob Museum contest. Winners will be announced Feb 1.
Goodman joins the ranks of celebrity ULC ministers, including Conan O’Brien, Kathy Griffin, Jeff Probst, and Rob Dyrdek, who have gone on to perform public and private wedding ceremonies. Follow the Universal Life Church on Facebook or Twitter (@ulcmonastery) for further news and video.
