For decades the Outfit had a nice piece of gay nightlife in Chicago, IL, and during the 1960s and 1970s its operations were overseen by John Gattuso according to recently released FBI files on the mobster. The FBI noted in June 1973 that under Gattuso's watch "business operations among homosexuals has become highly lucrative source of income for Chicago LCN Family."

One confidential informant told the FBI in 1974 that "one had to be connected with the outfit or at best have the outfit permission to open and operate a homosexual tavern."
In 1955 at the age of twenty Gattuso married the niece of Rush Street crew boss Jimmy "the Monk" Allegretti, and by the early 1960s was managing the Monk's interests in strip clubs, B-girl joints and gay bars. The Monk was a degenerate who was charged in 1959 with paying $30 for oral sex from an underage girl -- although the case inexplicably was dismissed a month later -- and he was a natural to run the vice rackets for near north side boss Ross Prio.

On February 10, 1983 Gattuso and Jasper Campise botched an Outfit-ordered hit on Ken Eto who ran the numbers racket, and two days later the FBI's Chicago Field Office sent a priority teletype to the Bureau Director in Washington, D.C. that "throughout the law enforcement community in Chicago it is believed that the LCN would attempt to kill both Campise and Gattuso for the 'sloppy job' they did on Eto." * * * Sure enough, a few months later in July 1983 the decomposing bodies of Gattuso and Campise were discovered in a car trunk.

In ‘74, I worked for a small company in Milwaukee, that made disco equipment. Neon dancefloors, spotlights, color-organs, controllers, etc.. We did a convention in NYC, where, even though I had built and wired all the stuff, I was not allowed to hook two wires together. At the end of the convention two tough guys walk up, and ask, “Do youse guys wanna sell this stuff?” Boss got a suitcase full of money, and we set off for Cape Cod to install it all. Turned out to be a gay club. Sheesh! What a lousy job that was!
So,,,, not just Chicago!

After Malihi pissed on Americans yesterday, maybe the MOB is the only entity that could save the country from this fraud...
...ironic as that would be.
After all, doesn’t seem the country has the rule of law to fear—it doesn’t exist.
How could the Mafia possibly benefit from a post-Stonewall situation where its former clients have risen high in politics and society?
