Chicago Outfit Boss John “No Nose” DiFronzo Ordered Rudy Fratto And Others To Murder Teamster Official Senese
When I was a little kid, my dad used to tell me about a friend of his that smoked one carton of cigarettes a day. This person was a fellow by the name of Dominic Senese. Like my father, Dominic was the secretary-treasurer of a Chicago based local for the Teamsters. In fact, the interests of Dominic’s local (#703) and my father’s local (#738) were intertwined at several major food companies located in Chicago. Dominic’s local represented produce employees and my father’s local represented warehousemen.
Sadly, my father’s local (#738) no longer exists because of the absentmindedness of its former mastermind, Albert Massey, who allegedly caused the misappropriation of funds approximately five years ago. Unbelievably, the misappropriation of said funds is not the entire reason for the demise of Local 738. My foolish brother, Armando, Jr., was offered the position of secretary-treasurer in order to save the local from going in to receivership. However, my brother was persuaded by Massey to pass on accepting the offer. Instead my brother joined him in a federal lawsuit attempting to win back the local. The lawsuit failed and both Massey and my brother lost their union positions.
But I would like to get back to Dominic Senese.
