I've been screaming into the abyss for some time about Alexi Giannoulias, the Illinois state treasurer that Obama endorsed when he ran for office despite no previous political experience, who has been personally mixed up with organized crime via business dealings with his family's bank. Well, guess what this little nugget turned up in a column in the Chicago Sun-Times:
Sneed hears rumbles political fund-raiser/fixer Tony Rezko, who is now singing sweetly to the feds from his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, has been talking about his "dealings" with a Chicago bank, which has political connections.Now that's throw away item in a political gossip column, so I would suggest taking it with a grain of salt. But if there's any truth to it the odds that Rezko is singing about Giannoulias' Broadway Bank are exceedingly high. If Giannoulias turns out to be in legal trouble again, there's no way Obama can disatance himself like he has with Ayers. Giannoulias has been out raising lots of money for his campaign, and was even given a speaking slot at the Democratic convention in August.
So Obama chose to have him associated with his campaign. This was well after it became public that Giannoulias had loaned $11.8 million to Michael Giorango, a convicted bookmaker and prostitution promoter. Giannoulias first denied he personally approved the loan, then Chicago Tribune reported that Giannoulias personally oversaw $11.8 million in mortgage loans to Giorango in 2005. Then Giannoulias said the money had not gone to finance Casinos for organized crime. He appears to have lied again: But newly obtained records show that $3.6 million of the recent loans were used by Giorango and another convicted felon to acquire a casino boat marina in Myrtle Beach, S.C., reported the Tribune.

Sounds rather HOPE......less
Who knows...maybe Hillary’s goon squad is working in reverse to protect Rezko and help him sing rather than squash him.
[Bigger than Ayers? We’ll see. Might as well tack Alexi Giannoulias to the wall as well.]
Here are two other names:
Important key word, Odinga [the thug of Kenya who coordinates with Obama]
Important key word, almansour [al-Mansour, the ‘stealth’ jihadist who got Obama into Harvard]
I wouldn't be so proud of that. Ted Danson isn't.
Don’t forget to ad this guy (Kwame)
Frank Davis Marshall
Khalid Abdullah Tariq al Mansour
ACORN/Project Vote/Mid West Academy
Danny K. Davis
Father Michael Pfleger
Long list already. And it doesn't include the list of O's financial friends I'm compiling.
