Joseph (Joey "The Clown") Lombardo is ANYTHING but a clown in real life - Part 1

Joseph (Joey "The Clown") Lombardo is ANYTHING but a clown in real life - Part 1 Lombardo's illicit career was rooted in the 1950's when he found work as a thug for West Side gangsters. At that time, the Chicago Outfit was thriving and a large cast of characters dominated the organized crime world focusing on prostitution, gambling, loansharking, jewel heists, labor racketeering and the various violent methods of controlling those who executed orders for street crews. Lombardo's ascension to the top rank of the Chicago mob was confirmed by a 1978 photograph that has become know as "The Last Supper" picture. It shows Lombardo dining with the highest ranking hoodlums in the city, including the late godfather Tony Accardo. In organized crime circles, Lombardo was more apt to be called "Lumpy" for his administration of beatings that would result in epidermis lumps on the recipient. He also used the aliases Joe Padula and Joe Cuneo during criminal escapades that spanned more than seven decades.
