A major source told me that Rudy Fratto’s latest legal battle involving the shakedown of numerous businesses (despite him only being charged with tax evasion) has enraged his boss Johnny DiFronzo. Rudy Fratto is fortunate that DiFronzo is being overly cautious right now, with my pending lawsuit against him charging that DiFronzo approved of the conspiracy to murder me. If things were different today, Rudy Fratto would have already been ‘knocked down’ for the heartache that he has recently created for DiFronzo.
When Johnny DiFronzo came home from prison in the 1990s, he ordered his underlings to refrain from engaging in various Outfit schemes, unless they had his expressed approval. At that time, DiFronzo was already scaling back his street interests in hopes of appearing as clean as a whistle. With the multi-million dollar per year gambling operations abroad, DiFronzo refused to allow common street business in Chicago to destroy his opportunity of remaining a major player in the international gambling rackets now controlled by his lackey, Joey DeVita.
According to my source, it further infuriates DiFronzo that Fratto used his connection to him to intimidate the business owners that he extorted for many years. Fratto used DiFronzo’s intimidating reputation as the driving force to coerce and extort the business owners that paid him blood money.
