Dominic Cefalu The FBI struck a decapitating blow today to the Gambino crime family, taking out its leaders and the last vestiges of late boss John Gotti, the Daily News has learned.
Up to 60 mobsters are expected to be charged on racketeering, murder and extortion charges, including acting boss John (Jackie Nose) D'Amico who was Dapper Don's longtime sidekick, underboss Dominic Cefalu and consigliere Joseph (JoJo) Corozzo, sources said.
Jackie Nose D'Amico surrendered to the FBI a short time ago, sources said.
In an exclusive interview with the Daily News in 2005, D'Amico denied running the Gambino family. "I'm the boss of my house and my bathroom," he said.
Gotti's brother Vincent and his nephew Richard, will be charged today with the 2003 attempted murder of Howard Beach bagel shop owner Angelo Mugnolo.
Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Benton Campbell, FBI officials and representatives from the Italian National Police are scheduled to discuss the largest Mafia takedown in more than two decades, at a press conference later this morning.
Another Gotti crony, Charles Carneglia is facing charges for the murders of an armored car driver during a robbery, the 1976 murder of a court officer and the 1990 rubout of gangster Louis DiBono.
Nicholas (Little Nick) Corozzo, a reputed capo believed to be the heir apparent to run the family, will be charged with a 1996 double murder in Brooklyn in which one of the victims was a bystander.
Officials are also expected to discuss the arrests of dozens of Mafioso members in Sicily in coordination with today's raids. The Sicilian wiseguys have ties to the Gambino crime family through reputed New York soldier Franki Cali, sources said.
During the lengthy investigation, the FBI learned that disgraced NBA referee Tim Donaghy was betting on basketball games with bookies. Donaghy pleaded guilty last summer and is cooperating with authorities.
Where will we get our King Cakes for next year?
all they wanted to do was wet their beaks a little(LOL)
So, while our inner cities are open air drug markets and free fire war zones, the FBI is spending all of its time taking down a bunch of old Italians whose principle crime is whacking each other. Yeah, that really makes a lot of sense. When it’s too unPC to take on the sharks, make yourself feel good by going out and bagging some minnows.
That’s typical of law enforcement in America today. Think about it: How many times have you seen your state cops out hiding behind a roadside billboard, munching donuts, and aiming their little radar guns at harmless middle-class Americans trying to mind their own business — while just a few miles away in the inner city, hordes of murderous thugs are running wild and wreaking havoc?
But...but...who’s going to run the Tobacco Black Market when the Smoke Gnatzies get smoking banned EVERYWHERE...even in our own homes? Who will supply me with contraband Criso when the Food Gnatzies ban trans-fats and Twinkies? ;)

Chasing the last few dinosaur Gombahs to earth.
Meanwhile, all around us radical Islam is setting up the organization and structure to overthrow our government from within, financing radical Islamic violence in other countries, and recruiting muslim men to travel outside the US for training as Jihadis.
Radical muslim traitors to the US are permeating the Federal government and providing classified information and secrets to our radical Islamic enemies.
Our borders are still almost wide open with thousands of illegals, including radical muslims, streaming across at will, disappearing into our communities to break every law on the books and plot terrorist operation against us.
And we have a humongous illegal drug business sponsored and financed by Mexican government officials with armed Mexican Federales regularly crossing our borders, entering the United States to protect their drug shipments.
