Hoffa vowed to go for it anyway, and Zerilli says that Tocco was not at all pleased.
Hoffa was sprung early by President Richard Nixon on the condition he not reclaim his position.
Hoffa vanished from a restaurant parking lot on July 10, 1975, when Zerilli was still in prison.
“Hoffa did not deserve the die the way he did, and I just want him to rest in peace,” Zerilli writes.
“Jack figured that if Hoffa got back in as president, Hoffa and I would still have our arrangement,” Zerilli writes.
