Ruggiero fraud

Rachelhope Nov 11, 1998 06:45 PM

Did anyone catch the article in the NYT about
Ruggiero's extreme habit of credit card fraud? How did
he think he could get away with routinely adding 5,000
or more to tips? Did I miss something? Coming right
on the heels of Reichl's awful review, things look dim
for him.

    We just learned, last night, that Mr. Ruggiero's
    uncle is/was Paul Castellano, a high-ranking
    Mafia don. No one in the media either reported on
    it or knew about it (this is from a reporter who
    hadn't the chance to cover the dude). Now we know
    where he learned his business ethics.

      Third article about it appears today on the front page
      of the Metro section. How dumb.
