Is Detroit Casino Syndicator Michael Malik Living in The Hamptons?

Has Detroit Casino Syndicator Michael J. Malik, Sr. packed up and moved to The Hamptons?

A New York State Board of Elections Disclosure Report filed for a Committee known as "Friends of Carl" indicates The Michael J. Malik, Sr. Trust contributed $2,500 to that Committee as recorded July 15, 2009 and that Malik resides at 1467 Deerfield Road, Wattermill, NY 11976.

It is noted that another NYS Board of Elections Disclosure Report filed for a Committee known as "Friends of Craig Johnson" indicates Michael J. Malik made a contribution of $2,500 to that Committee on February 2, 2009 but records Malik's address as 2211 Woodward Ave., Detroit, MI 48201 (the corporate address of Ilitch Holdings, Inc. and various Ilitch affiliates).

Malik/Ilitch Shinnecock Casino Ties
Malik and Mrs. Marian Ilitch are among partners in Gateway Casino Resorts, a casino syndicate backing plans to build a large casino on Long Island in partnership with the Shinnecock Indian Nation.

Ilitch, sole owner of Motor City Casino, also is the co-founder of Little Caesars Pizza and the Detroit Red Wings hockey franchise. Her husband owns the Detroit Tigers baseball franchise. Ilitch's son Christopher Ilitch, president of Ilitch Holdings, said a larger-scale version of Motor City Casino - a 17-story, 500-room facility - tailored to the New York market is "very accomplishable."

"We've operated all around the world," he said. "It's not like we're a bunch of hometown bumpkins here. We're savvy enough to understand the challenges of opening in another market."
