Laurel J. Sweet reports in the Boston Herald:
Not A Real Cheesehead
Boston’s once legendary La Cosa Nostra - which for years struck fear in Hub hearts as its hit men painted the town red with blood - sank to a sorry new low yesterday with the Mob’s 400-pound reputed underboss’ pathetic plea for a jail cell with a super-sized toilet.
That bizarre request came to light yesterday amid a hearing in federal court on alleged New England Mafia underboss Carmen “The Cheeseman” DiNunzio.
DiNunzio, whose Fresh Cheese shop made him the Gorgonzola guru of the North End, is awaiting trial on charges he bribed an undercover FBI agent with $10,000 in a feeble attempt to sell $6 million worth of potentially tainted dirt to the Big Dig.
Phew! Wisconsin just dodged a PR bullet!
