The Kirk campaign is continuing its assault on Giannoulias following yesterday's arrest of the owners of Boston Blackies for check-kiting allegations, which involved Broadway Bank. The owner, Nick Giannis, has also contributed around $115,000 to Giannoulias over the years. Turns out, however, as the Kirk campaign is circulating, that Giannis already had a felony conviction back in 1996 for firearm possession.

The Giannoulias campaign has said that it will donate the Giannis money to charity, which the Kirk campaign had called for yesterday. Smelling blood, the Kirk campaign isn't giving up, and released a list of questions this morning for Giannoulias:

Questions for Alexi Giannoulias:

1)      Did you and your family know about Nick Giannis' felony conviction when Broadway Bank approved $6 million in loans for him?

2)      When was the last time you spoke to Nick or Chris Giannis before their arrests?

3)      Were you ever made aware by the Giannis family or others that a federal investigation was underway?

4)      Will you agree to donate the Giannis family campaign contributions to Bright Start families who lost their college savings under your risky investment strategy?

local media seem to be reporting Kirk's comments but still protecting Giannoulias, so to stoke their fires, Kirk should stoke Rahm takeover rumors...Rahm's now known well enuf among IL voters to be weaker than Giannoulias, so the media protection might mean less... or is this too complicated, naive, whatever?
