The following information may come as a complete shock to you, especially if you don’t normally pay attention to blogs and rely solely on the mainstream media for your daily dose of politics. Then again, if you relied solely on the MSM, you wouldn’t be reading this right now, would you?
Four months ago, Tony Rezko, a political fundraiser, restauranteur, and real estate developer in Chicago, was convicted on several counts of fraud and bribery. Tony Rezko is heavily involved in Chicago politics and was instrumental in the campaigns of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and U.S. Senator Barack Obama. If you have followed political news at all, I am sure you have heard Rezko’s name mentioned in the same sentence with Barack Obama’s more than a time or two.
Rezko has had numerous troubles with the law, and it seems now that he has been convicted he has decided to start singing to the federal authorities in hopes of a lighter sentence. It’s obvious that Rezko knows a lot of secrets within Chicago politics and apparently the information he has is pretty good. If the information he had didn’t contain red meat, I don’t think the feds would be wasting their time sitting down with him. He’s already been convicted, why should they cut him a deal now?
PUMA Pundit has a complete rundown of the information on Rezko’s ties to Broadway Bank and how Barack Obama’s name is connected to Rezko in more ways than one.
