Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert F. Kennedy, claims that degenerate thugs threatened to blind their "young children in an acid attack to deter" the mob buster's "investigation into labor racketeering" as reported by Lou Lumenick for the New York Post:
Speaking out in a documentary by her daughter Rory premiering today at the Sundance Film Festival, feisty matriarch Ethel Kennedy recalls a scary threat when her husband was counsel to a Senate subcommittee probing organized crime's control of labor unions.
"There was a journalist for the New York Post they had thrown acid in the face of," Mrs. Kennedy, 83, says, referring to crusading columnist Victor Riesel, blinded by a hood linked to the Mafia in a shocking 1956 attack. "We were told they were going to do the same with our children."
There's no level to which the Mafia will not stoop.
