Report: Gambino Crime Family Picks Domenico Cefalu As New Boss

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – The Gambino crime family, knocked down again and again by federal indictments, has a new boss and he’s no Dapper Don.

WCBS 880’s Irene Cornell On The Story

As first reported by Jerry Capeci in his Gang Land column, the Gambinos have chosen a new boss who will keep it low key.

According to the report, 64-year-old Sicilian-born Domenico Cefalu is the man. He reportedly lives with his mother in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn and actually works for a local bakery supply company.

Cornell reports Cefalu’s style is radically different from John Gotti’s: no fancy suits, no busy social club gatherings to attract the FBI and he’ll never flip. He has a reputation as a “stand up” wiseguy.

Cefalu is out of prison on supervised release after doing time for heroin trafficking. Federal judge Jack Weinstein warned Cefalu that if he associates with known mobsters, he’ll be back in the slammer.

    He looks like a Democratic Senator or Represenetive or Governor from New York. Both wise guys and politicians from NYC are crooks.
    I hope I’m not insulting the guy comparing him to a Dem politician.
