Lucky Gambler is Unlucky at the Wrong Kind of Pot
November 15, 2012If Lee Fama plays his cards right; he might keep winning at poker. However, if Fama istruly involved in the wrong kind of pot, his next poker-playing days might be in the slammer.Fama, 44, won thousands of dollars in casino poker tournaments; both in Atlantic Cityand in Las Vegas. He hit for $22,000 in Atlantic City, but only a measly $666 (t
he Devil’s sign
 and not a good sign) in Las Vegas.However, according to an article in the
 New York Daily News
, Fama, allegedly took aboyfriend of "Mob Wives" star, Carla Facciolo, along on a drug deal in Staten Island.Unfortunately, the person Fama allegedly bought the pot (marijuana) from was an informantwired for sound.According to a high level Drug Enforcement Administration agent, Fama met with his
dealer
in Staten Island to buy two pounds of pot; hardly an amount of drugs a sane personcould claim was for his personal use.When the wired-up stoolie asked who the stranger was that Fama had brought along forthe ride
, Fama said, "That's the mystery boyfriend, Carla's boyfriend.‖
 
The pot dealer looked puzzled. ―Who’s C
arla?
‖ he said.
 
Fama scoffed, ―
From
 Mob Wives
,
adding that Facciolo's co-star Renee Graziano wasalways
talking about ―Carla’s
 
 boyfriend.‖
 (Truthfully, Renee Graziano is always talking
 – 
period.)The puzzled pot dealer
said, ―I don’t watch much TV.‖
 (Thank God for that.
 Mob Wives
is truly an abominable television program. I wrote abook -
 Mob Wives Fuhgeddaboudit!
- criticizing the show and its participants and the less saidabout
 Mob Wives
 – 
the better.)A day after the alleged Staten Island pot buy, Fama got pinched by the Feds, and whenthe
 New York Daily News
contacted the representative of 
 Mob Wives
’ 
Carla Facciolo, this personsaid, "Carla's trying to find a boyfriend. She hasn't had a boyfriend in years."Yeah, right.In addition to the drug dealing charges, the Feds claim Fama is a wiseguy in the Gambinocrime family, as if the name of the alleged boyfriend of a
 Mob Wives
star involved in a drug deal
wouldn’t get the Feds enough publicity.
 
Fama’s lawyer 
, Fred Sosinsky, denied that Fama is an inducted member of the Gambinocrime family, but quite frankly, who gives a bleep.Fama was arrested for allegedly buying a large amount of pot with the intention of sellingsaid pot to make a nice profit for himself. The fact that Fama may or may not be a made-guy inthe Gambino crime family is beside the point. However, the Feds get their rocks off and garnermuch publicity when they throw in terms like
―Mafia,‖ and ―Italian crime
families
‖ when
yakking to the press.I wish the government would try the Fama case on its merits, and with the tape of thedrug deal in their hands, there seems to be enough evidence to convict Fama without the
―Gambino crime family‖
smokescreen being heaved in our faces.
