Carmine DiBiase aka Sonny Pinto. Notorious Colombo associate involved in the Joe Gallo slaying and other hits
In spite of “Crazy” Joe Gallo’s nearly 10-year absence from the streets of Red Hook, he and Armando “Mando” Illiano (right) make a show of camaraderie at a gang-sponsored birthday celebration for Lisa Essary, Gallo’s new daughter by marriage.

The slogan “Jive Ass,” incidentally, was Gallo’s playful nickname for the birthday girl.
In 1958 Gallo brothers were summoned to Washington to testify before the McClellan Committee of the U.S. Senate on organized crime. Upon walking on the Kennedy's office, "Crazy Joe" Gallo snapped: "Nice carpet you got here... Good for a crap game."
