The FBI has arrested reputed Genovese associate Stefano Mazzola on an extortion charge for allegedly threatening to hurt a victim over a $30,000 loan in New Jersey as reported by Peter J. Sampson for The Record.
Mazzola was a former cop with the Passaic force for six years when he left in 1976 on a disability pension, and since then has served hard time on multiple convictions as reported by Louis C. Hochman for nj.com: "Mazzola was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison in 1999 for assaulting a debtor in a Passaic store," and "he previously served a decade in prison for armed robbery, extortion and racketeering."
Apparently Mazzola rubbed elbows in the past with the Clinton crew as previously reported by David Stout for The New York Times: "on one occasion, he was photographed shaking hands with President Clinton and his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper."
