    is here. We don't need Democrats who play fast and loose with the facts like Republicans.

    What the ad says:

    "(Giannoulias) was chief loan officer when his family's bank gave a million dollars to Blagojevich crony and convicted felon Tony Rezko, then let Rezko bounce a half million in checks."

    What else you should know:

    The loan was taken out by Rezko before any of his legal troubles. Giannoulias has said Rezko was never a campaign donor or fundraiser for him.

    The details of the check bouncing came to light from a lawsuit filed by Las Vegas casinos against Rezko during his corruption trial. The complaint alleged the checks were drawn on Rezko's account at the Giannoulias bank, but there was no allegation the treasurer "let" Rezko bounce the checks.

    Giannoulias no longer holds a position at his family's Chicago bank.
