Bonanno Soldier Stevie Blue tells judge his lawyer suffers blackouts like Senator Mitch McConnell

 The Bonanno crime family soldier convicted of killing a witness in a murder case says that his lawyer suffers from the same blackouts as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Stephen “Stevie Blue” LoCurto, 62, wants a Brooklyn federal judge to appoint assistant counsel to help with his attempt to get his sentence lowered from life in prison for his role in the murder to 20 years.

“My attorney Bernard Freamon is having trouble focusing for long periods of time,” LoCurto wrote in a letter to Magistrate Sanket Bulsara on Sept. 6. “It’s gotten so bad, they took his driver’s license. What he has is similar to what Mitch McConnell, the Senate Minority Leader has when he freezes up.”

LoCurto has asked the judge to have lawyer David Schoen question him on the stand for his case.

The mobster filed a civil case to shave eternity off his prison time, arguing that his lawyer told him not to take a plea because he misunderstood a change to federal racketeering law.

Freamon did not immediately respond to an email sent Thursday night
