Mob Wanted Johnny Carson Dead For Flirting With Mafia Guy's Girlfriend
According to a new book, a mob boss wanted Johnny Carson dead for flirting with a mobster's girlfriend.
It was 1970, Carson was inside a Manhattan bar when he went up to the woman and tried to get her to leave with him-- but she was dating a man who was high up in the mob. When the mobster and his crew arrived, they went over to Carson, grabbed him and threw him down a flight of stairs. He then put a hit out on Carson.
Carson hid in his home for three days.
The hit was called off after NBC made a deal with crime boss Joseph Colombo to carry coverage of a Columbus Day rally that was formed by the Italian-American Civil Rights League.
