kraut_mick MOBBED UP MONDAYS!!!
This piece of italian art right here is Rosario Gambino. His bloodline, in one way or another, leads back to American capo di tutti capi, Carlo Gambino, as some distant relative.
But wait, there's more!
Rosario is kinda of like the Forrest Gump of the mafia, having had many ties to pinnacle matters in recent mob history
Let's run it down....
1. Born in '42, Rosario came to the US from Sicily in '62. Not before being formally inducted into a Sicilian family.
2. Settled in Cherry Hill, New Jersey with his brothers then hit their cousin up for work! Was then formally inducted into the Gambino crime family and formed what became known as the Cherry Hill Gambinos/Cherry Hill Mob.
3. Worked closely with bosses Gambino, Castellano, Bruno, Scarfo.
4. Played an integral part in the famed Pizza Connection (a heroin smuggling ring that brought in $1.6 billion worth of ' ron from southeast Asia, particularly Afghanistan, to Sicily, Spain, or South America, then to the US). 5. Due to this integral part, Italy issued an arrest warrant for Rosario in 1980 and the authorizing signature came from none other then Giovanni Falcone (hero of Italy, first man ever to successfully prosecute the Sicilian mafia, only to later be assassinated when his convoy was blown up in a MASSIVE explosion).
6. In '83, Italy convicted Rosario (who was not in the country) of drug trafficking and sentenced him to 20 years.
6. In '84, America convicted Rosario of distributing 'ron in south Jersey, Philly, and Dover and sentenced him to 45 years.
7. In '99, Rosario's son, Thomas, got Roger Clinton (the president's brother) to plea on behalf of Rosario for a presidential pardon. The pardon was never granted, but a large investigation followed.
8. 2009, Rosario was released to Italian authorities after serving his American sentence to proceed with his Italian one (Rosario and his lawyers fight appeal). Whether in Italy or America, Rosario follows his criminal code like a real throw back. Doing decades standing on his head! Don't make'm like this anymore.
