Ralph Ninfo, 29-year-old son of City Councilman Salvatore Ninfo of the Bronx, was denounced by his father today as a “fanatic” and “Coughlinite” who should be put “in jail for the rest of his life” after he had been tried in West Side Court on a disorderly conduct charge for making a soapbox speech attacking Jews on Sunday night. The son was charged with having “used expressions calculated to create a disturbance.” Ninfo represents the American Labor Party in the Council.
