Former mobster tells courtroom he’s gay


Maybe those Sopranos writers weren’t so inventive after all. A former Mafia hit man shocked a Brooklyn court yesterday, when he publicly renounced the mob and came out of the closet. Robert Mormando helped slay a Queens bagel store owner in 2003 (mob boss Vincent Gotti suspected the baker of having an affair with his wife.) But he was so disgusted by his bosses that he left La Cosa Nostra and now lives an openly gay life with his partner. And as the NY Daily News notes, Mormando is hardly the first homosexual mobster.
