Why, I’m shocked – shocked, I say

Nancy Pelosi’s father Thomas D’Alesandro Jr. allegedly was a “constant companion” of notorious mobster Benjamin “Benny Trotta” Magliano and other underworld figures during his political years in Baltimore, MD. D’Alesandro was a Congressman for five terms from 1938 to 1947, and Baltimore mayor for three terms from 1947 to 1959. Magliano was identified by the FBI as one of Baltimore’s “top hoodlums,” and he widely was acknowledged as the representative for New York’s Frankie Carbo who made his bones with Murder, Inc. and later became a made guy in the Lucchese family. The allegations are included in D’Alesandro’s recently-released FBI files which Friends of Ours has obtained pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act.

    As the old saying goes: “Turds of a feather”.

    If you think that’s something, wait until you read about Franklin Roosevelt D’Alessandro, Nancy Pelosi’s brother.

    It doesn’t surprise me. Hell, look at Papa Joe and the Kennedys. He was a bootlegger with the Chicago and New York mob. Even got his boy elected as president in return Bobby was supposed to back off as AG.

    There is even one claim that Sam Giancana was behind both Kennedy killings and Marilyn Monroe’s death. It was an interesting read but I’m not sure how much is true.

      Looks like RFK did not get the memo.
      There is a VERY interesting chapter in a book titled “Fry The Brain”, by John West that covers the Dealy Plaza event, for those so inclined to read.
      Sirhan Sirhan’s account is open to some interpretation, especially regarding a possible handler, the “woman in polka dot dress”. MKULTRA fanatics, jump in all you want.

      For what it’s worth, G. Robert Blakely (guy who created RICO) has always said that the Mob had a hand in taking out JFK, maybe not direct responsibility, but a hand.

    Everyone in B’more knew about Big Tommy being dirty.

    Lest we forget the Cuomo crime family. As far as I know, no one has “connected” them but come on!
