State Sen. Serphin Maltese unwittingly honored a Mafia soldier at the reopening of the reputed gangster's Queens bakery, the Daily News has learned. Maltese issued a proclamation and posed for pictures with Vito Grimaldi last week outside Grimaldi's House of Bread on Menahan St. in Ridgewood in the senator's district.

Maltese was unapologetic yesterday about publicizing the Bonanno baker.
