The Colombos can breathe a little easier with the reassignment of a hard-charging FBI agent who has left the crime family in ruins after more than a decade of mob-busting.
Special Agent Scott Curtis was a scourge of the Colombo crime family, participating in the arrests of more than 100 gangsters, but more importantly, convincing at least a dozen wiseguys to reject their Mafia oath and become government informants.

Jailed Colombo boss Thomas "Tommy Shots" Gioeli (center) used his prison blog to rant against Curtis, claiming that the FBI special agent had an affair with the wife of a mobster.
“Special Agent Curtis played a pivotal role in the fight against organized crime, in particular the Colombo family, and the reach and influence of that criminal enterprise has been significantly diminished based on his tireless work,” said former Deputy U.S. Attorney General Greg Andres.
Curtis is transferring to an FBI office in Pennsylvania, sources said. Mobsters feared Curtis showing up at the doorstep with a subpoena and trying to convince them to renounce the mob life — a Colombo capo who received a visit on Easter morning later agreed to join the government’s team.

Jailed Colombo boss Thomas "Tommy Shots" Gioeli used his prison blog to rant against Curtis, even making the ridiculous accusation that the agent was cozying up to a mob rat’s wife.
