To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

Unless otherwise specified, proof of death consists of a birth date >100 years old or being included in the copy of the RIDS Dead List located here (https://ia803107.us.archive.org/6/items/FBIRIDsDeadList2018/RIDSDeadList-2019.pdf).

1. John Joseph Coughlin a.k.a. "Bathhouse John"; "the Bath" (August 15, 1860 – November 11, 1938), a former Chicago alderman from the 1st ward. He, along with Michael Kenna, led the Grey Wolves and was known as one of the Lords of the Levee.

2. Michael Kenna a.k.a. "Hinky Dink" (August 20, 1857 – October 9, 1946), a former Chicago alderman from the 1st ward. He, along with John Joseph Coughlin, led the Grey Wolves and was known as one of the Lords of the Levee.

3. John Budinger (1865 or 1866 - September 20, 1951), a former Chicago alderman from the 4th ward (1910-1912) and 1st ward (1943-1951). He was known for being an associate of John Joseph Coughlin and Michael Kenna, and a part of their machine.

4. John D'Arco Sr. (March 27, 1912 – October 27, 1994), a former Chicago alderman from the 1st ward and member of the Illinois House. Among other things, he was investigated during Operation GAMBAT.

5. Michael L. Fiorito (August 1, 1911 - January 5, 1995), a former Chicago alderman from the 1st ward. He was an alderman between February 16, 1963 and May 6, 1963. He resigned on May 6 because he was a Wilmette resident, not a Chicago resident. Additionally, he was under investigation for the circumstances of his election, where he received won receiving over 9000 write-in votes, even though he entered the race less than 72 hours before the election.

6. Donald W. Parrillo (December 13, 1930 – March 4, 2020), a former Chicago alderman from the 1st ward (1963-1968). Proof of death is satisfied by a death notice in the Chicago Tribune that is available at the following link: https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/chicagotribune/obituary.aspx?pid=195618257. A PDF of this death notice is also attached to this request.

7. Fred Bruno Roti (December 18, 1920 – September 20, 1999), a former member of the Illinois Senate and Chicago alderman from the 1st ward (1968-1993). As a member of the Illinois Senate, he was part of The West Side Bloc, which was known for their links to organized crime. Roti was also widely believed to be a part of the Mafia. He was federally indicted in 1990 on corrupt charges and convicted in 1993.

I am aware that there are preprocessed records available for most, if not all, of these subjects. Please reprocess these records as previously claimed exemptions may no longer be applicable. Additionally, please perform an additional search for records for each of those subjects, beyond existing preprocessed records

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Shreyas Gandlur

Our office uses the *FOIAonline* portal for FOIA and Privacy Act requests

Dear Shreyas Gandlur,

I am writing in response to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request
of October 23, 2020 for records in the custody of the National Archives and
Records Administration. Your request was received in this office on October
26, 2020 and assigned FOIA tracking number 64757, interim tracking number
RF-369.

You requested FBI case files related to John Joseph Coughlin; Michael
Kenna; John Budinger; John D'Arco Sr.; Michael Fiorito; Donald Parrillo and
Fred Roti. We conducted a search of all available indexes transferred to
the National Archives and were unable to identify any FBI case files
responsive to your request in our holdings.

Because we were unable to identify any case files pertinent to your subject
of interest, we are closing your request administratively. This concludes
the processing of your request.

If you have not done so already, you may wish to submit a FOIA request to
the FBI for a search of their indexes for files relating to your subject.
Information about how to submit a FOIA request with the FBI is available on
their website at:
https://www.fbi.gov/services/records-management/foipa/requesting-fbi-records
.

If you are not satisfied with our action on this request, you have the
right to file an administrative appeal within ninety (90) calendar days
from the date of this letter. Appeals must be in writing and may be
delivered by regular U.S. mail or by email. By filing an appeal, you
preserve your rights under the Freedom of Information Act and present the
deciding agency with an opportunity to review your request and reconsider
its decision. If you submit your appeal by regular mail, it should be
addressed to the Deputy Archivist of the United States (ND), National
Archives and Records Administration, 8601 Adelphi Road, Room 4200, College
Park, Maryland 20740-6001. Both the letter and envelope should be clearly
marked “FOIA Appeal.” If you submit your appeal by email, please send it to
foia@nara.gov, addressed to the Deputy Archivist, with the words “FOIA
Appeal” in the subject line. Please be certain to explain why you believe
this response does not meet the requirements of the Freedom of Information
Act. All communications concerning this request should reference your FOIA
tracking number.

If you would like the opportunity to discuss our response and attempt to
resolve your dispute without initiating the appeals process, you may
