    In real life, Butch would get the governor to use revenue agents to stick up the bank, calling it “excise taxes” or “excess profits tax” or perhaps “registration fees,” and then transfer the cash to Butch in exchange for the votes of the Hole-in-the-Wall Gang. Everybody wins! Well, except the bank, but who needs the bank’s consent? It’s a better investment strategy than conventional private sector strategies because not only is your gambling stake strictly ‘house’ money, but also because the ‘capital investors’ don’t have any legal recourse via shareholder or fiduciary duty suits.
