1. From Noelle Jezek:

I'm pretty sure that Giannoulias is a sociopath. He's all weepy for the demise of his father's legacy, Broadway Bank, but then he makes every effort to distance himself from the poor business practices that led to the Feds taking it over. His investments screwed the Bright Start folks but then proudly touts the fact that they only lost 50% of their investment. He's a danger to the people of Illinois. Too bad the suit company he championed doesn't have more employees to vote for him in November.
