Excerpt: DAVID N. KELLEY, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, PASQUALE D?AMURO, the Assistant Director in Charge of the New York Office of the FBI, ELIOT SPITZER, the New York State Attorney General, RAYMOND W. KELLY, the New York City Police Commissioner, MICHAEL J. THOMAS, the Special Agent in Charge of the New York Field Office IRS Criminal Investigation, GORDON S. HEDDELL, the Inspector General of the United States Department of Labor, and ROSE GILL HEARN, the Commissioner of the New York City Department of Investigation, announced today the unsealing of an 83-count, 225-page Indictment charging 22 defendants, including various members and associates of the Genovese Organized Crime Family of La Cosa Nostra, with racketeering, extortion, fraud, tax evasion, and other offenses arising from the Genovese Family?s alleged control over the drywall industry in the New York City area. According to the Indictment, which was unsealed in Manhattan federal court, the Genovese Family controlled two construction unions for decades through either outright extortion of union officials or the corrupt infiltration of the unions? leadership. Using this alleged control, the Genovese Family allowed contractors associated with the Family to defraud the union welfare funds, deprived union members of jobs on significant construction projects, extorted and intimidated other contractors and generated millions of dollars for the Genovese Family and its associates.
