From Talking Points Memo:
Don't quote me please but.... has anyone noticed that while NY-1's Michael Scotto seems like a nice young man his Uncle is Anthony Scotto, feared Gambino boss and the King of the NY waterfront for many years.
Whilst Michael is (according to my sis at NY-1) a very nice and shy type I wonder if the other side of the family is going to be as easy going towards thug vermin, Grimm...
The New York Post's Page Six has more:
The journalist is related to Anthony Scotto, former head of the Brooklyn longshoremen’s union and a former boss in the Gambino crime family.
“Michael is a tough reporter, and in true Scotto fashion, he’s not easily intimidated!” “Good Day New York” host Rosanna Scotto, Michael’s cousin and Anthony’s daughter, told me.
LoLoLoL. Michael Scotto was quite likeable throughout the uncomfortable exchange. I particularly enjoyed hearing him say, off camera, to Grimm, "Why? It's a valid question."
As if impending corruption charges weren't enough, Rep. Grimm now has another reason to be frequently looking over his shoulder.
