Mobster Comes Out of the Closet During Court Appearance

Gambino family hit man Robert Mormando had something to share in court yesterday. He's gay and he wanted everyone who was at his sentencing for involvement in a 2003 shooting to know it.

Mormando's lawyer Nancy Ennis told the judge that her client "has been openly gay since he left the mob." The ex-gangster became a government informant shortly after the shooting and was released based on time served. Mormando says he lives "a peaceful working life" with his partner who doesn't want to join the witness protection program.
