I just saw something interesting on another board. Michael DiLeonardo, the former Gambino Family Captain, who flipped and gave evidence against the family, recently did a Q&A on the Black Hand forum, and he talked a bit about his dealings with Pete Milano in the early to mid 1990s.
He said the first time he met Milano was in California, and they were not formerly introduced, Cosa Nostra style. The next time was in New York and the two were formally introduced by Joe G. from the Bronx. They discussed doing business together. The next meeting was a beef over Joe Isgro. He wasn't yet made, but was under the Gambino family. Milano told Isgro he had to pay to operate. DiLeonardo and Jack Damico went to California to meet with Milano about this. " I went out to Cali with Jack Damico, we had lunch with Pete, a captain with him and this made guy. Pete felt Cali was his and he wanted tribute, he had about 40k of Joe’s money through a business deal, I told Pete those days are over, he does not control the state, Pete paid 10k towards the money, I told Pete, Joe was proposed for membership and we were not going to be shaken down, we agreed Joe operates on his own and if they have deals they can do, fine. Joe was made, he is a great guy I was very close to Joe, later on Pete did not pay the balance, saying he was broke."
DiLeonardo also mentioned Frank Valenti who was put under Pete by the Commission.
I thought it was interesting that Milano was dealing with New York as late as 1996.
