Former Bank Of Broadway Exec Member Of The Mob?

Seems like people in Chicago are a tad on edge lately, (no, not Kenny G's fault) as the fight for Illinois' Senate seat went up a notch today. Republicans greeted the Democratic primary winner, Alexi Giannoulias, for the Senate seat once held by Obama in Illinois with a video: "He'd make Tony Soprano Proud."
Yes, Giannoulis once worked as VP at his family-owned bank, Bank of Broadway, which is under scrutiny. As of last week, it's operating under FDIC's consent order, meaning they have to raise a lot of capital ($19 million) for losses from mounting delinquent loans in order to stay in business. But does that a mobster make? You tell us.
