Obama's Ties to Tony Rezko and Alexi Giannoulias

Closing the Obama-Rezko gap.

Who is Alexi Giannoulias? Could there really be yet another shady connection that will finally grow legs in the media.

Obama helped Alexi Giannoulias (D) win a run for Illinois State Treasurer. Giannoulias has helped fund Barack Obama. They met on a basketball court, and it appears the two scratch each others' backs. Giannoulias spoke at the DNC: "Barack Obama has been my basketball buddy, my friend, my mentor and my inspiration."

From Giannoulias' website: "Prior to taking office, Giannoulias served as vice president and senior loan officer at Broadway Bank in Chicago’s Edgewater community. Crain’s Chicago Business rated Broadway the No. 1 Bank in Illinois for five years based on return on assets. Giannoulias grew up in Chicago, graduated cum laude from Boston University and earned a law degree from Tulane University’s School of Law in New Orleans." Obama says about Giannoulias, "... he's one of the most outstanding young men that I could ever hope to meet ..."

But of course this beautiful marriage of money and politics is more than meets the eye. Giannoulias is rumored to have financed Chicago figures with ties to the mob. It is also rumored that Broadway Bank is about to come out as being politically connect with Tony Rezko. The Chicago Sun-Times reported on Oct. 11 that Tony Rezko has been "spilling the beans." And some are speculating that Obama could be looking at jail. (No Quarter has a different take on this story.)

This post won't go into detail, but suffice it to say, maybe America will pay close attention to this one, hitting a nerve overexposed by the economic crisis—shady bank dealings are not going to play out as well for Obama as, say, relationships with '60s bombers, radical reverends and Islamic financers (wait, why is it again that America doesn't care about those things?). It certainly sounds like a Hollywood plot, and the slick-as-oil Obama gets a starring role. Hopefully the next twist is which President in American history pardons Obama for his crimes—or doesn't.

If this criminal mess doesn't catch up with Obama, maybe this one will: "Clintons File RICO Suit Against Obama - ACORN Stole the Nomination Too!"—watch for developments.
