Former Mob Boss Turned Born Again Christian to Share Testimony at California Prayer BreakfastA former New York mob boss whose life was changed by the power of Jesus Christ is set to be the keynote speaker at this year’s Santa Clarita Valley Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast in California. Michael Franzese is the son of the underboss of the infamous and violent Columbo crime family, and is considered “one of the biggest money earners the mob had seen since Al Capone,” formerly raking in millions a week from illegal activity.
