Although his major campaign contributions have been made from car dealerships owned by a renowned Colombo mob soldier, as well as the Colombo family’s first son, Michael Persico, and the fact that his father was a mob hitman Republican assembly candidate Frank Sparaco, just wants you to fuggedaboutit.
NY Daily News: Republican Frank Sparaco says he has nothing to do with “the life,” yet he makes much of his livelihood from those mob-connected dealerships, where he services candy and soda vending machines through his company, Pop’s Vending.
Sparaco’s father Frankie (Blue Eyes) Sparaco is a cold-blooded mob killer who was part of the Colombo mob family. He pleaded guilty to several murders, became a police informant, and then jointed the witness protection program.
“He has put me in a precarious position,” Sparaco said, referring to his father, Frankie (Blue Eyes) Sparaco. “I wasn’t a part of that life.”
Although, ironically conveniently enough, when asked, Sparaco answers like a true politician, saying, “I don’t know John Staluppi, I never heard of the man.”
In today’s political climate, if the biggest controversy facing a politician is a couple thousand dollars in mob-connected money, hell, we say fuggedaboutit too.
