Kill Dennis Kucinich? They might as well have had a plot to kill Pee Wee Hermann.

I wouldn’t want anything to happen to the great Gazoo. He may be wrong about pretty much everything but I suspect that he’s an honest man relative to most politicians.

Keep in mind that this the Cleveland Free Times—it has about as much credibility as the Weekly World News.

They need a volunteer?

I may not be a hit man, but I did sleep at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

Never plot to kill leftists in power. Their own actions will get them run out on a rail fairly quick as no rational human accepts that kind of nonsense.

Kookcinach was bounced from Cleveland after a whole bunch of BS...I’d be interested in him as a president...the reason is purely entertainment...we’d get an impeachment proceeding after 8-12 months, possibly a hanging in 18 months.

The timing of this article is suspicious. Is it to make him seem a victim? Or to expose corruption that ran through the city while he was mayor?

Have to wonder if there is any mob connect to the contracts this corrupt Democrat negotiated. This should have been a national story but instead each city took it to be a local problem and most ignored the pattern of behavior and Federal investigation:

Corruption probe here broadens to 3 states (FIVE STATES now!!!) Oliver Spellman case (Cleveland Plain Dealer Wednesday, December 08, 2004)

Oliver Spellman, the Cleveland parks director under former Mayor Michael R. White, was charged Tuesday with accepting bribes from Beachwood consultant Nate Gray in exchange for political favors in Houston, where Spellman was the mayor's chief of staff...

Cigarette Smoking Man, IMHO, represented everything about the crooked Clintons. The series was popular during the 90s, during the Clinton Occupation..

Dennie Kookcinich has been in politics since 1978?

I guess after he allowed the river to catch on fire, what else could he do?

An Irish union racketeer named Danny Greene tried to wrestle control of organized crime in Cleveland from Licavoli, with the help of mob henchman John Nardi. Licavoli, however, was in no hurry to leave. A car bomb killed Nardi outside the Teamster Hall on May 17, 1977. Another one snuffed out Greene in October that year; his left arm was found 100 feet from the rest of his body.

All These years I remembered Danny going boom the morning I left for indocrtination into the navy, but that was feb 79. Must have been a different racketeer that went boom! Its hard to keep em all straight back there.

"My husband who lived one street over from where the car bomb went off, heard it."

That would mean he lived a block from Brainard Place, where Green had visited his dentist, while Luis Aratari and his buddy were cruising in the backup car with their rifle, while Ronnie Carabia used the remote control to detonate that Nova (load car).

Unless you're talking about the hit on Nardi, over on W. 25th Street......

It sure was. Interesting.
All the more so since it isn't fiction. Would make a heck of an entertaining movie.

Well, some of the names stand out in Cleveland history. I remember names like Dimora, Danny Green, Palladino, and Kovacic. I am a bit surprised that the Mafia was the only party interested in the death of Kucinich. He really screwed up Cleveland during his tenure as mayor. Lots of major companies moved their headquarters out of the city as a result.

I would not have shed a tear if they'd have succeeded.

I went to high school with Nardi's nephew. Apparently, he's now head of the Teamsters in Cleveland. Nice kid though, if a bit misguided politically.

I still believe guys like the CSM exist to this day. Secret agencies with executive power given to them by Clinton or God knows who...running around doing what they please for the “greater good”.

The hit was on Shonder Birns, not Nardi. My error...

Ther was a period then of so many bombings going on, Cleveland was known as "Bomb City" or something like that.....

Danny Greene often was in the drugstore that I worked as a teenager. Very polite man but his all green wardrobe made him easy to pick out in a crowd.

Anyway when Danny would come in and use our payphones we almost always had a visit from an Ohio Bell repairman. Turns out the repairmen were FBI.

Last time I saw him was when he limped in to the drugstore after a bomb had leveled his two story IrishAmerican club and he crawled out with his high school girlfriend with nary a scratch.
