the documents included the finance committee for his 2004 U.S. Senate bid. That list included Antoin "Tony" Rezko, a longtime friend and fundraiser now standing trial in Chicago on federal corruption charges, as well as Rezko's wife, Rita.
In a real estate transaction that has dogged Obama, he and his wife bought a South Side mansion on the same June 2005 day that Rita Rezko and her husband purchased an adjacent landscaped lot.
It is amazing how these politicians think they can associate with people and not be tainted by it.
The real estate transaction is especially troubling because the sellers’ offer included the adjacent landscaped lot and was to be sold with the house. Hussein evidently couldn’t purchase the home and the lot. By Mrs. Rezko stepping in and buying the lot Hussein was able to buy the house.
Folks, that’s a huge favor. I mean HUGE. The kind that are not forgotten. The kind that require no explanation.
And don’t you just love it when they release such information on a Sunday holiday PM? Makes me wonder what they are trying to hide.
