The campaign of Illinois Republican Senate candidate Mark Kirk responds to recent reports that his Democratic opponent Alexi Giannoulias has embellished his record:
First there was the dishonesty about his failed banking experience, then exaggerations about charitable work at the AG Foundation and now we learn his claim to membership on the board of the Community Bankers Association is not true. Alexi Giannoulias' already-limited resume has suddenly gotten a lot shorter. This is just another example of Alexi’s pattern of deception. He wasn’t honest about his resume, he wasn’t honest about the loans he made to organized crime figures and he wasn’t honest about the $150 million he lost in Bright Start college savings. Illinois voters cannot trust Alexi Giannoulias.
