The Las Vegas visit started on a high note but ended on a low note for former multimillionaire stockbroker Jordan Belfort, the inspiration for Leonardo DiCaprio’s Oscar-nominated performance in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street.”

Here as the opening keynote speaker of the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers convention at Caesars Palace and to sign copies of his book, Jordan like many a tourist wound up partying at one of our adult strip clubs.

But in the middle of his Las Vegas fun, the government slapped liens on two homes it believes he owns in Hermosa Beach, Cali. The feds say that he pleads poverty but has secret assets while still owing $110 million to bilked investors.

Additionally, a New York company went after a third home there to satisfy a $30,000 judgment.
