Apparently those degenerate mobsters are still behind the drug trade.
Reputed Philly mob underboss Joseph "Mousie" Massimino is under investigation by the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office on suspicion that he may have financed drug buys for convicted dealer William "Billy" Andrews, and "charges are expected to be filed later this year in the case" as reported by George Anastasia for the Inquirer.
The 61-year-old Masimino was picked up last May with twelve other suspected mobsters, including reputed boss Joseph "Uncle Joe" Ligambi, pursuant to a federal racketeering indictment involving gambling and loansharking, and he remains in jail pending trial.
The results from the state drug investigation may be passed off to the feds for prosecution.
Although mob apologists like to pretend that drug dealing is verboten for wise guys the stubborn truth is that the Italian Mafia is all about the dirty junk. For example, during the 1940s Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel, Charlie "Lucky" Luciano and Meyer Lansky smuggled narcotics from Mexico, Vito Genovese was put away in 1959 for trafficking heroin through his gay bars, and in the mid-1980s the feds busted the so-called Pizza Connection ring in which the Mafia distributed $1.6 billion of heroin through pizzerias between 1975 and 1984.
At the end of the day it's always about the drugs for the Mafia: always has been, always will be.
