I think you are definitively in possesion of key pieces of the puzzle, but I don't think that any presumptive link in between the Kennedy's and mob
during the Campaign killed JFK .
I am very doubtful of any support of Mob leaders to the Kennedy- Johnson Ticket considering the well known enmity of RFK with people like Jimmy Hoffa
along the years of JFK in the Senate.
Naturally, the best candidate for the mafia interests in 1960 was Richard Nixon. He had by far ties with mobsters as big as to make anything LBJ had
look like a joke.
Don't forget that Jack Ruby started his career as bell boy of Al Capone in Chicago in 1930s, but soon after in 194Os he was working for Nixon being
one of his assistants during the communists hunting era.
John Rubistein was a key factor to uncover, or manufacture, it depends which side you decide to take, the supposed evidence Richard Nixon used in
court to incriminate the Adviser His.
Now , many claim Joseph Kennedy made his foutune during the prohibition trading illegally licours using Mobsters, but I think that is defamation.
The head of the Kennedy clan made his fortune selling Whisky and Brandy for their medicinal properties to pharmacies. Joe Kennedy didn't have any need
to go into underground activities, since FDR gave him an exclusive permit to import legally those licours to be used for medicinal purposes.
The real issue between JFK and the mafia began when the operation of invasion over Cuba on bay of pigs failed dramatically in 1961, since the
President didn't want involve USA arm forces on it.
The operation was preapproved by Dwight Eisenhower and personally planned by the Vice President Richard Nixon. If he might be elected in 1960 he
surely should send American troops to invade Cuba.
The second issue happened in 1962 when JFK made a deal with Nikita Khrushchev to remove the nuclear missiles from Cuba, in exchange for an agreement
that under his administration USA never again would try to overthrown Castro from power.
Those two decisions made JFK pretty much an extremely hated person in mafia circles, since people like Sam Giancana, Santos Trafficante and Carlos
Marcelo lost over 50000 millions of Dollars expropriated by the Cuban Revolution that they previously owned there in Hotels, Casinos and Night
In Particular that was devastating for Santos Trafficante who was imprisoned in La Havana by Fidel Castro for years, in a very humiliated
