Despite his past you can tell he is a man of integrity and honor. There is a right way and a wrong way of doing things. If those in power choose the wrong way, then that makes them the lowest of the low. I have have so much respect for this man. Say what will but in my opinion he far more honorable than most of those running our country today. There is no accountability anymore. People are out for themselves and will turn on anyone if it suits their wants or needs. Im glad he was able to turn his life around and is now turning what once was a mess into a message.

Can you post a version without it. Reply Shattered says: August 13, 2019 at 4:01 pm Michael Francheze is a rat! He testified against his father’s associates. One guy that Michael testified against is named Norby Walters. Proof: “Marovich said one of the most disturbing aspects of the case concerned the the agents' connection with organized crime as evidenced by the testimony of Franzese. 'Michael Franzese's presence weighs heavily on the scales of justice,' the judge said. Franzese testified for the prosecution, saying for years he used veiled threats of violence to help Walters keep his entertainers under contract. He also testified he provided Walters and Bloom with $50,000 to open their business, World Sports and Entertainment. Walters repeatedly called Franzese a 'liar.'” https://www.upi.com/Archives/1989/06/19/Walters-Bloom-sentenced-to-jail-fined-395000/3770614232000/ And https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1454&dat=19890315&id=aFFIAAAAIBAJ&sjid=RRQEAAAAIBAJ&pg=6653,4775056 And https://www.vanityfair.com/news/1991/02/john-gotti-joe-columbo-fbi-investigation-witness Picture of Michael Francheze taking the stand. https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-1tnl9DhYPNE/WDuIOClczrI/AAAAAAAANPo/8Ymtd4-l2dQGAy4ij89mAoVEQEyMFYuiQCLcB/s1600/images.jpg “Franzese made a deal with the Fed's and pleaded guilty to "two of the federal charges and all 65 of the state counts, even though that meant a prison sentence. “Later, he agreed to testify against Norby Walters, a sports agent who was charged with illegally signing college athletes," the Times noted. "Within weeks of testifying against Walters, Franzese was freed from prison, having served less than four years of his 10-year sentence. He was sent back in 1991 after admitting to a pair of probation violations–failing to file income tax returns for two years that he was in prison and improperly endorsing a check." https://www.cosanostranews.com/2011/03/nothing-personal-debuts-with-story-of.html A rat is a 🐀 rat! Michael Francheze can lie all day but the facts are out there! He’s a official informant, snitch, stool pigeon, rat/ratto! That is why he was THROWN out of the mob! The ONLY reason he wasn’t whacked was out of respect for his father, Sonny Francheze! Sonny had no problem with Michael being whacked. Michael Francheze admits this^ in almost every interview he does! He was a punk and he never invented nor did he run the gas tax scam! That was Marat Balagula’s invention. Mike Francheze tried to muscle in and Christy is he Tic Funari of the Lucchese family shut Francheze down! That’s a fact! They split the money between 4 of the 5 families. About the gas tax scam: “ Anthony Casso developed a close alliance with a Ukrainian mob boss named Marat Balagula. This guy had multi-billion dollar gasoline tax avoidance scam going on in and around Brighton Beach. The Russians formed small companies and purchased gasoline as wholesalers. At that time the wholesalers were supposed to collect the tax and pay it to the government. These small gasoline wholesale companies collected the taxes from the retailers and failed to pay the government entities as required. When an investigation followed, the companies folded and they created new companies.The Russian Mafia learned Casso’s friend, Balagula, was paying off Casso. The Russian mobsters started a campaign to discredit him among other Russians and they said because Barat was a punk and had no balls. They were wrong about Balagua, he was a ruthless killer and a smart dude. He knew that the combined force of the Italian crime families would end any threat from the other Russians. In 1986, a Russian boss named Vladimir Reznikov, entered the Rasputin nightclub in Brighton Beach and confronted Balagula. He pushed a 9mm Beretta into Balagula’s face and demanded $600,000 immediately and a future percentage of the gasoline profits. Balagula promised to get the money to which Reznikov replied, “Fuck with me and you’re dead, you and your whole fucking family; I swear I’ll fucking and kill your wife as you watch, you understand?” Anthony Casso heard about this and told Balagula, “Send word to Vladimir that you have his money, that he should come to the club tomorrow. We’ll take care of the rest.” Casso also requested a photograph of Reznikov and a description of his car. When Reznikov arrived at Balagula’s nightclub to pick up his money, a Gambino associate named Joseph Testa killed. Gaspipe Casso would later claim, “After that, Marat didn’t have any problems with other Russians.” https://ganglandwire.com/anthony-gaspipe-casso-part-2/ Marat Balagula – the real person who invented the gas tax scam. Michael 🐀 Francheze had absolutely nothing to do with it! He tried shaking Balagula down and got checked by Funari and the Lucchese family! Nothing more! “After the Colombo crime family began shaking down his gasoline business, Balagula asked for a sitdown with Lucchese crime family consigliere Christopher Furnari at Brooklyn's 19th Hole social club. According to Anthony "Gaspipe" Casso, who was a Lucchese family soldier present at the meeting, Furnari declared, "Here there's enough for everybody to be happy… to leave the table satisfied. What we must avoid is trouble between us and the other families. I propose to make a deal with the others so there's no bad blood…. Meanwhile, we will send word out that from now on you and your people are with the Lucchese family. No one will bother you. If anyone does bother you, come to us and Anthony will take care of it." Casso was soon partners with Balagula in a diamond mine located in Sierra Leone, Africa. They opened a business office in Freetown. Casso also arranged for an Orthodox Jewish friend of his named Simon Stein, a diamond expert and member of the DeBeers Club, to travel from the Forty-seventh Street diamond district to Africa to smuggle diamonds back into the country in the linings and collars of overcoats and in secret compartments of very expensive leather luggage.” https://mafia.wikia.org/wiki/Marat_Balagula Michael Francheze was not a gangster! He’s a punk who never would’ve been straighten out if his father wasn’t so respected in all mob circles! Mike was not respected on the street. FFS, the media nicknamed him “the yuppie”. 🤒 Michael’s younger brother was the one who testified against his own father. He wore a wire and got his father, Sonny Francheze sent to prison for 10 years at the age of 80-85+ years old. Respect to Sonny Francheze! He is a real OG and stand up guy! Michael and his brother are a disgrace! Two rats…. The rat brothers. Reply Jonas Grumby says: August 13, 2019 at 4:21 pm Cracks me up how this greaseball criminal scumbag talks about god.
