Bid rigging: NYC sanitation honcho wiretapped with mobster father-in-law
WHO: Frederick Grimaldi, deputy chief for equipment and facilities at New York Sanitation Department
WHAT: Grimaldi was caught on tape allegedly providing precise bidding instructions to his wife’s dad, Michael Murdocco, a reputed Gambino crime-family soldier. The suspected insider information was for crony Vincent Alessi, owner of Duramix Corp., to bid successfully on tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of concrete barriers for NYC.
WHY IT WAS A BAD IDEA: Authorities were eavesdropping on Murdocco in connection with another case when son-in-law Grimaldi called to allegedly rig the bidding and use his payoff for a new home air conditioning unit. The wiretap recordings were leaked this week to the New York Post.
WHAT’S BEING DONE: Grimaldi, 44, Murdocco, 64, and Alessi, 42, were indicted by New York state’s Organized Crime Task Force last month, along with 18 other members of the Gambino and Luchese crime families and their associates on a range of charges, including bookmaking and bribery.
