Book: Mafia Hit-Man & Teamster Boss Helped Joe Biden Become U.S. Senator

Home - by - September 8, 2012 - 10:00 America/New_York - 12 Comments


The book I Heard You Paint Houses came out in 2003, so it’s been gathering some dust on a number of bookshelves around the country for quite some time.

The book’s title, according to Amazon, comes from the first words infamous Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa ever spoke to Frank “the Irishman” Sheeran. To paint a house is to kill a man. The paint is the blood that splatters on the walls and floors.

The book is essentially the deathbed biography of one-time Delaware Teamster boss and mob hit-man Frank Sheeran and truly is a fascinating read.

[Spoiler alert: Before he died, Sheeran claimed to be the one who killed his friend and mentor, Jimmy Hoffa–whose body was apparently later cremated.]


Despite the book purportedly being made into a movie called The Irishman, starring Robert De Niro , Al Pacino , Joe Pesci, as well as directed by Martin Scorcese, it has not been released yet.

    Well,perfect reason Ubama picked this turd for a running mate. They have the corruption, commie and grievance constituency in the bag.

    His career is built upon a foundation of corruption. That’s got to be what stood out in his resume to 0bama.

    This is no stretch of the imagination. Look at Joe Kennedy’s ties to organized crime. He had Chicago Mayor Daley Sr. tag the mob-controlled Unions to vote for his son John.

    Perfect illustration why getting rid of unions would get rid of a lot of problems.

    As for Slow Joe, he’s SO slow that he couldn’t figure out how to capitalize ($$) on his senate seat the way the rest of the grifters do! I guess the mob can only do so much!

    Doltin’ Joe is obviously too STOOPID to be a county dogcatcher, much less U.S. Senator. :roll: That he’s made it THIS far in life, is apparently clear now – ONLY the mafia could keep a STOOGE like this in power!

    I suspect Biden has no clue about this guy’s mob involvement. Joe probably thought he was one the of the boys and had no clue he was bought and sold by organized crime.

    Biden, mob? He is too stupid for them.

    He will never be killed because he knew too much, that much is certain.

    The only problem I have with the story is that it came out in 2003 after Biden won the lottery and became VP and the fact that all mob assholes lie. They lie to the cops, they lie to their wives, they lie to their priests, their victims, their children, everyone they work with. Hell, they probably lie to their pets. It wouldn’t be the first time that some mob douchebag decided to brighten up some sad and pathetic bio by throwing in a few whoppers here and there to sell some books. This is not a defense of Biden the Mediocre but rather a caution against believing what these “men of honor” write when they’re checking out.
