Gambino Crime Family has a new Boss

August 16th 2011 | Posted by UnderBoss



The Gambino crime family has a new boss in Sicilian born mobster Domenico Cefalu. Sources say that Cefalu has stepped up and taken the reins of the mob clan. A Sicilian taking over the family marks a stunning end to the infamous John Gotti era in the crime families history. A law enforcement source said he thinks they picked a Sicilian to run the family because they are tired of the old, lazy. fat American Italians who turn into rats far too often.

This move comes at what many think is a crucial time for the crime family as two mobsters of the previous family ruling panel Daniel Marino and Bartolemeo Vernace are in jail leaving Cefalu as the last made man standing as the dust settles. Cefalu is known as a very low key old school gangster and is the exact opposite of the families former boss John Gotti. Cefalu lives with his mother in Bensonhurst and claims to work for a baking supply company as a salesman. Cefalu has had previous run ins with the law serving time for a heroin conviction and again for refusing to answer questions about his mob captain at the time Pasquale Conte before the Grand Jury. He also remains on supervised release from a 2008 extortion conviction.

Law enforcement sources say that the Gott family era of having influence over the Gambino Family has now officially come to an end , they say former boss John Gotti disliked Sicilian mobsters in general and was not a fan of Cefalu. But Lewis Kasman the so called “adopted son” of the late John Gotti disputes the opinion that Gotti hated Sicilians he said Gotti always said Sicilians did the best work. Kasman also said he thinks Gotti disliked Cefalu because of his involvement with narcotics.

With new boss in place the Gambino crime family moves forward and will be interesting to see of Cefalu can lead the family back after the latest round of devastating convictions to some of its leadership. The Gambino family like all of the five New York Mafia families continues its struggle against pressure from the Feds and mobsters turning rat. The Gambino’s may not be as bad a shape a couple of the other New York families but there is still much work for Cefalu to do to move the family forward.
