Italian Parliament's Postman Revealed To Be A Coke-Dealing Mobster

Tyler Durden's picture

It's perhaps not the most shocking headline given the circumstances but as Bloomberg reports via DPA, the man in charge of handling the correspondence at Italy's upper house of parliament was arrested Tuesday by police on drug charges. While there is no suggestion he peddled his drugs inside the senate, it seems mild-mannered Orlando Ranaldi who managed the Senate's post office by day, was a Tony Montoya-like 'Italo-Albanian' gang-member cocaine-dealer by night. We are sure Monti will just let this 'blow' over, but from now on - any unusual white powder found in envelopes may not be sniffed at like it was in the past.

 

Via Bloomberg:

Rome (DPA) -- The man in charge of handling the correspondence at Italy's upper house of parliament was arrested Tuesday by police on drug charges.

 

Orlando Ranaldi, 53, is the manager of the Senate's post office. But outside of normal office hours he doubled up as a cocaine dealer in the suburbs south of Rome, investigators said.

 

There is no suggestion that he also peddled drugs inside the Senate.

 

Ranaldi is accused of being part of an Italo-Albanian gang. Nine other people - three from Albania and seven from Italy - were arrested in the same police operation, including a traffic police officer and a bus driver.

 

"We are amazed, even if he is not an employee of the Senate: he was sent by the post company to work here," said Paolo Franco of the Northern League, one of three senators who are responsible for administrative affairs within the institution.

No suggestion that he peddled coke in the parliment.  JUST THE FUCKING OBVIOUS CONCLUSION.

Why am I not surprised...?  Italy is corrupt frpm top to bottom (see my quote from a recent thread for more details)

A Swiss cop told me (years ago) that the Albanian Mafia was the worst in his country.

Dude....it's just a little Bunga Bunga blow!

If that is the dude, he really looks like Gary Busey or Nick Nolte. And if not, then we've probably just fingered one of the bigger recipients of the coke.

Are you going to stick with Busey.....or bet it all on Nolte?

Looks like Gary Busey the actor.  Actually Busey looks like this all the time especially  when he doesn't go to his AA meetings.

There is no difference between the mob and the political system and the central banking system. Once we get that in our heads, we can make some real progress.

In Naples, the Camorra is far more efficient than the political system. Don't insult them nilly-willy!

Gosh, and he looks so...alert!

It's the espresso they serve in the lobby - helps keep all those busy legislators alert while doing the people's business.

I thought coke dealers made enough to not need a second job!?!?!?

caimen garou's picture

most likely a user that had a little bit on him and the police calculated a street value of 10,000 euro therefore he is a coke dealing mobster

It's not blow......it's iocane powder.

 

The battle of wits has begun. It ends when you decide and we both drink, and find out who is right... and who is dead.

Silvio got him the gig - loves showing Gary Busey flicks at his Bunga Bunga parties

This is news? Maybe outside Italy, but certainly not inside. This is a country that has elected porn stars ("Chicciolina") to serve in its Parliament. BTW, she was known for giving speeches with one of her breasts exposed. Italian politics is not like our politics.

If I had to choose between a coke dealing mobster or a nation destroying bankster....it's kind of a no brainer.
