Buddy Cianci was the mayor of Providence, RI from 1975-1984 and then 1991-2002. Why the break between terms? Because he got busted for assault. And then he got elected again once he his sentence was over, and remained mayor/pasta sauce salesman until the Feds brought him down for rampant corruption. And people STILL love him.
This is his first campaign ad. He apparently decided that the best way to voters hearts, it make himself look like the murderer in an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents.
He is one of America’s greatest treasures.
I love this dude, and his marinara is BOMB.
