Dan Moldea on MCA, the Mafia and the sordid career of Ronald Reagan
Reagan's first contact with the Chicago Mob took place when he was a sports announcer in the Midwest.
Then he developed a close relationship with seriously mobbed up MCA.
When he was president of the Screen Actors Guild he made sure that industry decisions always went MCA's way and MCA treated him like royalty making sure he always had plenty of money by a variety of means.
Reagan was already a master of "I don't recall" long ago.
