  3. I have a feeling Cicilline might eventually be the first out-of-the-closet gay man to be elected to the Senate. Ten years from now, his being gay will be less of a liability than his family's tendency to be associated with corruption and crime.

  4. Right Rom,

    His family wasn't closely associated, it was in bed, with organized crime. But organized crime runs Rhode Island, especially since the crackdown in NJ. Plus honestly, he wasn't that good of a mayor. Buddy Cianci, who is also in bed with the mob, did a great job as mayor.
