Salvatore “Sam” Giancana, also known as “Momo” and “Sammy the Cigar,” grew up in The Patch on Chicago's rough-and-tumble West Side, and after becoming a major player in the 42 Gang,
an army of young thugs, graduated to the Chicago Outfit, which is said to have controlled illegal gambling and liquor distribution in Louisiana. He also had strong political connections.
In 1960, JFK, then a Massachusetts senator and presidential candidate,
was introduced to Campbell by Frank Sinatra in Las Vegas, and she and the future leader of the United States quickly fell into an affair. But JFK wasn’t the only person involved with Campbell. A few months later, Sinatra introduced her to Giancana and
more sparks flew. And with Kennedy winning the presidency that November, suddenly the mob was rumored to have a foot in the White House.
Now, in “Momo: The Sam Giancana Story,” we bring you the incredible evidence of how Giancana delivered three states for JFK’s election, and is suspected of possibly
having a role in Marilyn Monroe’s controversial death. This program will also examine Giancana’s involvement with the CIA to kill Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, and possible ties to the JFK assassination.
“Momo: The Sam Giancana
Story,” adds to the diverse programming featured on Newsmax TV, America's fast-growing news and information channel, carried in more than 40 million U.S. satellite and cable homes.

Monroe to have been determined dead by drug overdose, "The Godfather" actor Gianni Russo, 75, claimed to the N.Y. Post the
sexual icon of the 1950s was killed by a doctor paid by Bobby Kennedy.
guy known as The Doctor — a killer for hire and an actual MD; he had done major hits for the mob — injected air into the vein near Marilyn's pubic region," Russo told the Post. "She died of an embolism, but it looked like drugs to the coroner."
Russo insists it was not the mob who organized the hit on Monroe, but instead it was the former U.S. attorney general who was the younger brother of President John F. Kennedy. There had been rumors tying the Kennedys to affairs with Monroe
and Bobby feared the story getting out.
"It had to
be Bobby," Russo claimed to the Post. "No one else would kill her. The mob would not have done it. They liked her. She was that party girl. Give her a couple pills, a couple drinks and she'll f–k everyone."
Russo, in the wide-ranging interview with the
Post, himself claimed to have been with Monroe, when he was 16 and she was 33 and continuing for four years.
"Marilyn was the best lover," he told the Post. "She just wanted to please you."
Before Monroe's death, according to
Russo, the mob tried to set up JFK and RFK to blackmail the president and attorney general "into invading Cuba and returning the island's casinos to organized criminals," per the Post.
"They wanted to film the Kennedys in a threesome with Marilyn," Russo told the paper.
The plan failed when JFK did not show.
Both JFK and RFK were killed later by assassination.
