Alexi Giannoulias heckled for holding a fund raiser on 9/11

He's got a video camera and a mission to make big conservative noise.

William J. Kelly - an independent conservative TV producer that produced a show for FOX on WFLD-TV in Chicago and an on-camera host on Comcast - is not beyond lunging at political candidates, bristling with "gotcha" questions. Mr. Kelly's latest target is Illinois state Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias, now a Democratic hopeful for the U.S. Senate seat now occupied by Sen. Roland W. Burris. The candidate was racing to make a $500-a-plate fund-raiser at the Union League Club in Chicago at 8:45 a.m. Friday when Mr. Kelly stepped forward.

"Why are you having a fund-raiser at the exact moment the first plane struck the Twin Towers on September 11, eight years ago?" he asked Mr. Giannoulias as the camera rolled.
