Obama Wants Mob Banker To Fill His Old Senate Seat | Judicial Watch

The president who promised change wants a shady pal whose bank folded after giving Russian mobsters and a jailed Democratic fundraiser millions of dollars to fill the U.S. Senate seat he once occupied.

The unwavering endorsement of Alexi Giannoulias for Illinois Senator certainly indicates that President Obama wants to maintain the status quo—rather than change it—in the famously corrupt Chicago political monster that’s been empowered by his presidency.

Currently Illinois State Treasurer, Giannoulias has enough skeletons in his closet to question the support of a commander-in-chief. The family bank (Broadway Bank) he operated in Chicago was shut down earlier this year by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. For years Broadway Bank did business with convicted felons and mobsters by providing them with tens of millions of dollars in “loans” that inevitably fortified their criminal enterprises.
