Finally! Mafioso Vincent "Chin" Gigante Appears In A Vicious Political Attack Video
That vicious/racist new web video attacking a Democratic congressional candidate in California marks the long-awaited debut in political attack ads of Vincent “Chin” Gigante, Carlo Gambino, Lucky Luciano, and a variety of other Mafia figures and notorious criminals.
The video targeting Janice Hahn (who is running to succeed Representative Jane Harman) was produced by Ladd Ehlinger Jr. for the Turn Right USA PAC. Titled “Give Us Your Cash, Bitch,” it features two rappers, booty shaking, a photo of George Soros as Dr. Evil from the Austin Powers movies, and images of assorted Latino gang members.
Repeated viewings of Ehlinger’s 1:29 epic also reveal that he has included photos (usually mug shots) of an assortment of hoodlums to apparently emphasize the gangster/gangsta tendencies of Hahn, a 59-year-old grandmother. Gigante, the late boss of the Genovese crime family, is seen above (bottom right) in a screen grab from the video.
In addition to Gigante, Gambino, and Luciano, other wiseguys in the clip are Al Capone; Meyer Lansky; Bugsy Siegel; Abe Reles; ex-Bonanno boss Joseph Massino; and Liborio “Barney” Bellomo, the Genovese gang’s reputed street boss. John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, and Bonnie & Clyde also get screen time.
Others making Ladd’s cut include “American Taliban” John Walker Lindh; Charles Manson; Obama ghostwriter Bill Ayers; “Tokyo Rose”; author/killer Jack Henry Abbott; Fidel Castro; and former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson. Ladd also made sure to include a booking photo of Anthony “Chopper” Garcia, the California gang member who tattooed on his chest a depiction of a murder he had committed.
