Funny, Epifania doesn’t sound Jewish

Today the federal government handed down 62 indictments against members of New York City’s most notorious crime family, the Gambinos. Upon publishing a list of mobster aliases contained within the 169-page court filing, the ever-popular website The Smoking Gun took note of one particularly striking inclusion – that of 60 year-old Robert Epifania, also known as “Bobby the Jew.”

Somehow, I imagine his designation as “the Jew” was not intended flatteringly.
