Too Much Junk Food for Colombo Acting Boss Tommy Shots

Thomas "Tommy Shots" Gioeli, the reputed acting boss of the Colombo crime family who is "awaiting trial for five gangland murders," has been buying a lot of junk food at the prison commissary as reported by John Marzulli for the Daily News:
Brooklyn federal prosecutors revealed his shopping list after they got sick of dealing with his constant complaints about his health. Gioeli, 57, suffers from diabetes and a serious heart condition that he says are made worse by a prison diet and lousy health care. Or maybe a bad snacking habit. * * * His defense lawyer, Adam Perlmutter, told the Daily News that the food Gioeli buys at the commissary is not meant for his belly. "He purchased many items during the holidays to give to less fortunate inmates on his cell block," Perlmutter said.
Gioeli is charged with the murder of five men:  Frank "Chestnut" Marasa in 1991; John Minerva and Michael Imbergamo 1992; Richard Greaves in 1995, and former Colombo underboss William "Wild Bill" Cutolo.
