Mob Ties For Potential US Senator

Alexi Giannoulias, the Democrat nominee for President Barack Obama's former U.S. Senate seat, attended a Hollywood fundraiser last week hosted by Paramount Pictures executive Pamela Abdy who allegedly once dated a reputed mobster as reported by Jake Gibson for FOX News:
According to the New York Post, in 2007 Abdy was captured on wiretaps talking with her former boyfriend, reputed Lucchese family mobster Joseph "Little Joe" Perna, who complained to her about trying to collect a $105,738 gambling debt but only coming up with $25,000. The conversations were part of an arrest affidavit that preceded the roundup of Perna and more than two dozen other reputed Lucchese associates and members. Abdy's uncle, former Lucchese New Jersey boss Martin Taccetta, was also arrested.
Giannoulias formerly was the chief lender at his family's Broadway Bank which loaned tens of millions to reputed organized crime figures including Michael "Jaws" Giorango who previously was convicted for his role in a nation-wide prostitution ring.
