Joseph Cammarano

Gang Land’s  Jerry Capeci writes,

Back in March, when a federal jury acquitted acting Bonanno family boss Joseph (Joe C) Cammarano of racketeering charges, Joe C figured he was golden. The clean win in court, courtesy of a jury of his peers, made him the only mob boss other than John Gotti to beat a racketeering rap.

But not everyone in the Bonanno family was cheering. In fact, his own boss was downright furious, Gang Land has learned.

Sources on both sides of the law say Bonanno boss Michael (Mikey Nose) Mancuso, who completed a 15 year prison term for murder conspiracy just one day before the Manhattan jury acquitted Cammarano, was so angry about the trial strategy adopted by Cammarano’s winning legal team that he did more than just take him down from his post. Mancuso also put Joe C on the “shelf” — a humiliating move that suspended all his wiseguy rights and responsibilities.      Gangland News
