The leadership of the Gambino crime family has reportedly been passed from a Sicilian old fella to a Sicilian younger fella.
Frank Cali, 49, of Staten Island, who has served on the family’s ruling panel for several years, has been elevated to acting boss, replacing 68-year-old Domenico Cefalu, the website Ganglandnews.com reported Thursday.
Cali, who was born in Sicily, has deep mob ties. He is related by marriage to members of organized crime in Sicily; his wife is the niece of Gambino capo John Gambino, and his brother Joseph and brother-in-law Peter Inzerillo are reputed Gambino soldiers.

Federal prosecutors have marveled at Cali’s meteoric rise to power in the crime family’s post-Gotti era.
He became a powerful capo before the age of 40, less than a decade after he became an inducted member, according to court papers. Cali has just one criminal conviction: a federal extortion charge for which he was sentenced to 16 months in prison.
A wiseguy in Italy was secretly taped several years ago gushing about Cali’s stature in New York City, “He is everything over there.”



  1. Old photo. He has a hell of alot of white hair now. Another joker waiting to die violently or do rot in prison. For now he lives wonderfully.

  2. Think he's opening up a club in Vegas and California. Saw him out with some of the former Crazy Horse crew and known mobsters, William Genovesee, Eddie Pettengill, Frankie boy Cefalu, Rick Rizzolo and others i didn't get to talk to.

  3. Yes Rick Rizzolo and the elite of the crazy horse crew. Still out every night blowing large amounts of cash and probably doing large amounts of you know what. Haven't seen the new guy out of California, Eddie Pettengill in awhile but that's probably intentional. No smart wiseguy wants the heat Rick and his crew will give you.

    G Man....
