Kennedy versus Marcello

Guest Author - Vance Rowe

Carlos Marcello was a mob boss in New Orleans after “Silver Dollar” Sam Corolla was deported from the United States. Marcello was a mobster in New Orleans and was set to make a ton of money from marijuana that was being illegally shipped into New Orleans. That is until he made the mistake of selling twenty plus pounds of marijuana to an undercover drug agent. He was convicted of the crime and was sent to jail for a year and fined 75,000 dollars. However, thanks to Sam Corolla and Governor O.K. Allen, his sentence was reduced to nine months and his fine was reduced to four hundred dollars.

When Carlos Marcello rose to power as mob boss for New Orleans and Dallas, Texas, he was a strong supporter of Richard Nixon in his quest to become president when he ran against Kennedy. He donated a lot of money to Nixon’s coffers and Jimmy Hoffa was even Marcello’s “bag man”. Carlos Marcello was so much of a Nixon supporter that Nixon himself stopped a land deal fraud investigation against Hoffa in Florida. However, in 1960, that all changed. John F. Kennedy defeated Richard Nixon for the U.S. Presidency and after that, Hoffa was finally sent to jail for his misdeeds and Carlos Marcello was deported from the U.S. to Guatemala by Bobby Kennedy shortly after the failed Bay of Pigs attack against Fidel Castro. When he came back into the country, he continued to fight extradition from the U.S. and this was aided by the fact that no other country wanted him either.

Frank Ragano, a lawyer for Hoffa and for the mob had a meeting with Carlos Marcello and Santos Trafficante in 1963 and in the book Mob Lawyer, Ragano said the meeting was about a message from Jimmy Hoffa saying that Hoffa needed a favor and wanted President Kennedy dead. It was also said that Trafficante, on his death bed, said that they, he and Marcello, paid Hoffa the favor he asked for. When Kennedy was killed, Hoffa apparently told Ragano: “I told you that they could do it. I’ll never forget what Carlos and Santo did for me.” He added: “This means Bobby is out as Attorney General”. Marcello later told Ragano: “When you see Jimmy Hoffa, you tell him he owes me and he owes me big.” This was in the book as well. Marcello was investigated for the assassination but the investigation went nowhere.

Carlos Marcello died in 1993, apparently from complications from Alzheimer’s disease and so did the truth of whether or not Marcello was involved with the Kennedy assassination.
