The Washington Times ran my On Crime column on Mafia Democracy, former Colombo Cosa Nostra caporegime Michael Franzese’s book. (Michael Franzese is seen in the below photo).
In “Mafia Democracy: How Our republic Became a Mob Racket,” author Michael Franzese claims that politicians are acting like organized crime members.
Rudy Giuliani, the federal prosecutor who once tried to put Mr. Franzese in prison, wrote the foreword to the book.
I reached out to Mr. Franzese and asked him why he wrote the book.
