It is alleged that in 2001, Roger Clinton, half-brother of the then president Bill Clinton had sought to free Rosario Gambino with a presidential pardon, after having allegedly received 50,000 dollars among other gifts by the Gambino family. The pardon was never issued by Bill Clinton. -----Italy: Former Mafia boss expulsion from US delayed (Rosario Gambano, pal of Roger Clinton) ADNKronos (Italy) ^ | April 3, 2008 http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1996208/posts Posted on ‎4‎/‎3‎/‎2008‎ ‎2‎:‎13‎:‎22‎ ‎PM by HAL9000

The gunman sped off in a blue pickup truck after the hit, which one source described as “disrespectful” because it took place near his family home in an outer borough.

Sounds like the perp(s) were fans of "The Sopranos".

In order to tighten her “chokehold,” Hillary set up what Brock calls a “Shadow Counsel’s office” – working parallel to the ordinary White House counsel’s office, but answering directly to Hillary loyalist Harold McEwan Ickes (pronounced ICK-eez).
Ickes was well-suited to the task of heading this secretive operation. As a New York labor lawyer, Ickes had represented numerous corrupt unions controlled by the Gambino, Colombo, Genovese, Lucchese and other organized crime families. His work on behalf of gangsters and labor racketeers brought him perilously close to prosecution, but Ickes displayed a Houdini-like gift for evading the authorities. “There are more than a couple of prosecutors in this city who believe that the only thing separating Harold Ickes and a jail cell is his ability to go strong and silent in the face of tough questions,” noted New York Post columnist Mike McAlary in 1993.
Ickes’ personal loyalty to Hillary is impressive. He ran her successful Senate campaign in 2000 and continues serving her today as the Shadow Party’s de facto CEO.
A former New Left militant during the ‘60s, Ickes traveled in 1965 to the Dominican Republic, where a junta of left-wing colonels was trying to restore deposed President Juan Bosch to power. Bosch was a socialist who had spent two years of his exile in Castro’s revolutionary Cuba.
Fearful that the Dominican Republic would go the way of Cuba, President Lyndon Johnson dispatched 22,000 Marines to the island nation on April 29, 1965. After fierce fighting, the leftist colonels were beaten. The socialist Bosch stood for election on June 1, 1966, losing to the pro-American candidate Joaquin Balaguer, who took 56.3 percent of the vote.

I took a trip up to Paul Castellano’s “White House” a few years back. Very nice neighborhood indeed...very “suburban” feel to it despite being in NYC.I think this guy was whacked in the same area.

One of these days I want to take one of those "Mafia Hits" tours of the city.

since it doesn’t seem like a mob hit, maybe his wife arranged it?
