Tribune blasts Alexi
Wednesday, Apr 12, 2006
I agree with every single word in this Tribune editorial about Democratic treasurer nominee Alexi Giannoulias.
Giannoulias has been nothing but puzzling when he has been questioned about his ties to Michael Giorango, a convicted bookmaker and prostitution ring promoter. […]
And the Tribune comes up with some good questions.
Has the 30-year-old candidate for treasurer ever really been more than a junior officer at the family bank? If he had the authority his title implies, how can he claim he didn’t know about this bank business?
Giannoulias has touted his banking experience as qualifying him for the treasurer’s job. He even said after the election that his experience is what got him the nomination, not the support from Barack Obama.
Well, it’s time for some answers.
