The Colombo family is falling apart.
Anthony "Big Anthony" Russo, a reputed Colombo family capo arrested last month with over a hundred other suspected mobsters, has wised up and now is playing for Team America as reported by John Marzulli for the Daily News: "'It's another nail in the Colombo family's coffin,' said a knowledgeable source. 'Their entire leadership is gone.'"
Russo "is believed to have personal knowledge about a vast array of its illegal activities" including "the 1993 murder of Colombo member Joseph Scopo" and "an extortion scheme to shake down the Gambino crime family" as reported by Mitchel Maddux for the New York Post.
Big Anthony joins a growing roster of reputed Colombo mobsters who reportedly are dishing dirt including Sebastiano "Sebby" Saracino, Frankie "Blue Eyes" Sparaco, Paul "Paulie Guns" Bevacqua, Dino "Big Dino" Calabro, Tommy McLaughlin and Peter Tagliavia.
Talk about family dysfunction.
