There is a book that I found called "The Milwaukee Mafia" what`s interesting about the book is the Alioto connection. I didn`t know that one of the bosses was an Alioto. I had this theory about The Aliotos legitimizing themsleves but wasn`t sure.

Did Frank Balistere operate an holding company?

I`ve finally finished this. It`s a small Arcadia book but very interesting because I never knew that Balistrieri actually ran such a complete operation but his "open house" operation led to his undoing. I wasn`t aware that John Alioto was Mayor Joe Alioto`s cousin.

It`s fascinating that John Alioto was also a greengrocer as well. I`m curious who the main upperworld contacts were for this group, besides the mayor.
