Obama Fund-Raiser Tony Rezko Convicted on Fraud, Bribery, Money-Laundering, Etc.

Another of Barack Obama’s slime-ball associates is in the news this week.

Antoin Rezko was convicted yesterday on 16 counts, including fraud, bribery, and money-laundering in an influence-peddling scheme.

According to Sen. Obama’s campaign, Mr. Rezko may have raised up to $250,000 for him during the years they have spent together in the Chicago political machine. The Obama campaign claims that it has donated $159,085 traceable to Mr. Rezko, his family, and his associates to charity.

Sen. Obama has also been linked to Mr. Rezko in a shady real-estate deal. Three years ago, when the rookie Senator was buying a house, Rita Rezko, Mr. Rezko’s wife, purchased an adjacent lot and then sold it to Sen. and Mrs. Obama, reportedly at a below-market price. Sen. Obama later called the move “boneheaded”.

Yesterday, echoing his 20-years-too-late distancing from Jeremiah Wright, Sen. Obama said, “This isn’t the Tony Rezko I knew.”

  1. Obama’s poor judge of character (Rezco, Wright, Pfleger, Ayers) should be STRONGLY taken into account by voters this fall, especially in light of the president’s responsibility to nominate cabinet heads and SCOTUS justices.

    Bush’s cronyism has been bad enough and Clinton’s was even worse, but given the anti-American nature of many Obama associates, it could prove disastrous for the country.

  2. The Obama campaign claims that it has donated $159,085 traceable to Mr. Rezko, his family, and his associates to charity.

    Why do I so strongly suspect that the charity was a certain church?
