GOP congressional hopeful running for AOC seat has serial criminal husband AND son

AOC’s GOP rival is CRIME MOLL: Aspiring US rep. railed against bail reform and woke DAs – but has serial criminal husband and son who used family’s NYC drinks firm as front for huge drug-dealing operation

  • Tina Forte, 52, has blamed increasing crime rates on bail laws approved by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
  • Her husband, Joseph Galdieri, 55, and son Joseph Jr, 28, have both previously been convicted of federal charges 
  • In 2019 the father and son pair were busted for possession of an illegal firearm, as well as posessing $150,000 worth of marijuana 
  • Galderi Snr was found guilty of second-degree assault previously, while Galderi Jr had substance charges across several states
  • Forte has also been accused of using her maiden name in an attempt to distance herself from the criminality of her family 

An aspiring Republican representative who slammed her opponent as a ‘crime surge creator’ is married to a serial criminal and her son has also spent time in jail for drugs charges.

Tina Forte, 52, has blamed increasing crime rates on bail laws that New York State liberalized four years ago, saying that she will be tougher on crime than her rival Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

But in her campaign against AOC she has failed to reveal that her husband, Joseph ‘Joey Snapple’ Galdieri, 55, has been in and out of jail several times.

She has been accused in the past of using her maiden name to distance herself from her ‘crime family’, with the hashtag ‘galdiericrimefamily’ being widely used online.

Forte has bragged about growing up in the Bronx as part of her campaign to become US rep. writing on her website that she and her husband built their own beverage distribution company.

Their son, Joseph Jr, 28, and her husband were involved in the center of a federal drug and gun bust in 2019 at the soda warehouse – which ended in both pleading guilty.

She has slammed AOC’s supported bail reform, telling Fox News: ‘I grew up here, I own a business here, I raised my family here. I see the difference.

‘We have the criminals that are being released immediately due to the AOC-supported bail reform.’

Tina Forte, 52, has declared a war on crime in her attempt to be elected for congress in the Bronx, but did not reveal that both her husband Joseph Galdieri, 55, and son Joseph Jr, 28, are both serial criminals with federal charges against them

Forte also claimed that ‘crime is out of control’ in the area, in a series of interviews slamming her Democrat incumbent.

A FBI investigation found that Galderi Jr arranged the drop off of $150,000 worth of marijuana over the phone, at the same time security cameras at their business address caught his father pacing behind him.

The investigation also claims that Galderi Sr handed a co-conspirator to the drug’s charges a plastic bag full of cash, according to the Daily Beast.

He was also caught on camera opening a drawer which contained a semiautomatic pistol with its serial number illegally abraded in a drawer.

Both father and son were already convicted felons at the time of the offence, so neither could legally possess a firearm.

Galderi Snr was found guilty of second-degree assault previously, while Galderi Jr had substance charges across several states.

His father was handed a sentence of time served, plus two years’ probation and a $20,000 forfeiture of his criminal gains.

In June of this year Galderi Jr attempted to get his prison time of 18 months reduced, claiming that the prisons were unable to address his ‘allergies’ and medical needs. The motion was denied.

A judge also noted that he ‘persisted ibn criminal conduct even while on pretrial release’ by continuing to deal marijuana.

He has since been released from prison, with Forte saying in a statement that her son’s ‘mistakes better have ended or he will have more to worry about than the police.’

She added: ‘One of my three children, Joseph, made some very poor decisions. In 2019 at 25, he committed a nonviolent marijuana offense and possessed a firearm.

‘Joseph paid the price, in fines, attorney fees, and time behind bars. As for my husband, he was unaware of our son’s crimes.

‘He was only roped into the charges because of my son utilizing our business location for a single delivery of marijuana.

‘As a result of my son’s conduct our lives were turned upside down. My son knows he has no more chances with me.

‘This experience has given me insights to the reforms we desperately need, including decriminalization of marijuana, expungement of marijuana violations, and restoring rights for nonviolent offenders.’

As part of her pledge to become a representative, Forte calls for ‘expunging the records of non-violent charges for marijuana possession’.

New York legalized recreational cannabis use in 2021, but it still does not allow unlicensed sale of the drug.

Her website does not comment on federal gun charges or violent offences like her sons 2013’ assault charge, and her son’s prior convictions involve drugs other than marijuana.
