Yes, when you left Chicago to diversify your portfolio, just like any other community banker on Main St. did you, as a good relationship banker, exchange business cards at your meeting? Did yours say, Alexi Giannoulias, just carrying out the garbage.
Did Jaws' say: Michael "Jaws" Giorango, prostitution promoter, bookie specializing in floating crap games and threats of bombings, beatings and robbery to collect unpaid debts? Did you ask Jaws about his business relationship with another Chicagoan:
In 1991, while Giorango was in federal prison for the bookmaking case, he was convicted of additional gambling and tax violations stemming from his role in a separate bookmaking operation overseen by Chicago Heights gambling boss Dominic Barbaro. At Barbaro's several wire rooms, Giorango accepted wagers totaling more than $40,000 a week and settled up with customers, prosecutors said.Maybe there was a video camera at Jaws' place so you can recognize your sober-suited, earnest, conscientious self doing some due diligence before you made a few more cool millions in loans.
So what did you and Jaws do in Miami, Alexi. Watch the clip again, you can see Alexi smirk before he schooled his face when Gregory asked him did you know.
Alexi Giannoulias, he wants to be your U.S. Senator from Illinois.New Kirk web video: More. TAS: Giannoulias: Spelled With a "G" As In "Gangster"
