Toto Anastasia

Anthony (Todo) Anastasio    Anthony Scotto may have quit the mob, but a close relative who was convicted along with the former dockworkers’ union boss 30 years ago of extorting $350,000 in payoffs from waterfront companies — Anthony (Todo) Anastasio — is clearly still in “The Life.”    

Anastasio was only a bit player back in 1979 when he sat alongside the former Gambino capo at their labor racketeering trial, even though Todo was the vice president of a powerful International Longshoremen’s Association Local, and the namesake of a legendary gangster on the New York docks.
