Excerpt: Giovanni Ignazio Dioguardi, also known as "John Dioguardi" and "Johnny Dio" (April 29, 1914 - January 12, 1979), was an Italian-American organized crime figure and a labor racketeer. He is known for being involved in the acid attack which led to the blinding of newspaper columnist Victor Riesel, and for his role in creating fake labor union locals to help Jimmy Hoffa become General President of the Teamsters. Dio was born on April 29, 1914, on the Lower East Side of New York City and brought up on Forsyth Street in Little Italy. He had two brothers, Thomas and Frankie. His father, Giovani B. Dioguardi, was murdered in August 1930 in what police called a mob-related execution.

By the age of 20, he was an acknowledged caporegime in Luciano's gang, and an underboss by the age of 24. With Plumeri and another gangster, Dominick Didato, he established and ran a protection racket in New York City's garment district. He was arrested several times between 1926 and 1937, but never brought to trial. For a time in 1934, he was executive secretary of the Allied Truckmen's Mutual Association, an employer association, and represented the employers during a strike by 1,150 Teamsters in September 1934. In March 1937, he was arrested on charges of extortion, conspiracy, and racketeering, pled guilty, and received a three year prison term in Sing Sing. After his release from prison, Dio moved to Al
