Wonder what you would find if you frisked the National Republican Senatorial Committee right after they received word that Alexi Giannoulias won the Democratic Primary for the U.S. Senate?
Answer: They immediately released the advertisement posted above.
Yikes! The NRSC definitely did not hold any punches back on this one. The moment they heard the bell, they darted out with lightning speed to attack. The objective of this advertisement is to connect Alexi Giannoulias to former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, Tony Rezko, and some thugs within the Chicago Mob. Absolutely brilliant. After all, it was the other Democrats during the primary election that opened this can of worms to begin with.
In regards to the better side of politics, Mark Kirk won the GOP Primary for the U.S. Senate. Congratulations! Although Kirk has been known to be a pretty moderate Republican, we hope he will stick to his guns and do what’s best for our country.

The NRSC has just released this statement:
The Democrats selected Alexi Giannoulias, yet another ethically-challenged candidate who was raised in the tradition of the Chicago political machine. Giannoulias’ failed record of achievement has not qualified Illinois’ first term Treasurer to serve in the U.S. Senate, but his tainted resume hasn’t stopped the ambitious 33-year-old from seeking a promotion in November.
Giannoulias’ record as the state’s first term Treasurer has not been much brighter. His crowning achievements include hiring a Wall Street bank to manage the state college investment fund, Bright Start, which proceeded to make bad bets and lose money for thousands of Illinois families. After the losses were discovered, the State of Illinois had to settle for the bank’s repaying only half of the total losses.
But that didn’t stop Alexi Giannoulias from buying himself a brand new SUV, courtesy of the state’s beleaguered college investment fund and paid for by taxpayers in Illinois.
And if you think that’s the only poor decision Giannoulias has made, think again. I will bring you more details on this corrupt politician later on this year as the 2010 elections draw nearer.
Just know this: The selection of Giannoulias as the Democratic candidate, just proves that corrupt Chicago-style politics still exists. Voters beware!
Side-Note: Love the ending of the adveritsement… “He would make Tony Soprano Proud.”
