Vegas Mayor Goodman tells 4th Graders He Loves Gin

LAS VEGAS Sin City's mayor is making no apologies for telling a class of fourth-graders that drinking alcohol is one of his hobbies. Mayor Oscar Goodman says he was just being himself when he told elementary school students the one thing he'd want if stranded on an island is a bottle of gin. The Las Vegas mayor says he's "not going to lie to children" and say he'd take "a teddy bear or a Bible."

The school's principal says it was inappropriate but that Goodman's comments "just went over" the students' heads.

Goodman has never been shy about his love of gin. He hosts regular "Martinis with the Mayor" events and started a bidding war between two gin companies in 2002 before becoming a spokesman for one.
