Many of the allegedly bounced checks came from people or entities with ties to Giovanna Blatterman, a Little Italy figure and former city official. One came from her son, Eric, who donated purportedly as "Eric Blaise." One came from her mother, Rose DiFatta Aquia, whose name was mangled in the filing to "Rose Difett." Two $6,000 checks came from a rowhouse across the street from Blatterman's daughter's restaurant. (The $6,000 check from Blatterman's daughter, who is also named Gia, apparently cleared).
