RSS icon Comments on Obama, Rezko, McCain


I hear he gave a lot more money to Clinton, actually.

And, if you think this is something, how come we haven't seen Cindy McCain's trust tax returns or her personal tax returns.

Rezko could either be sending the message that his lips are sealed ... or hes going inside now to begin cooperating with the G.

So... he's talking, unless he isn't.

Still, it's interesting speculation as speculation goes.  Thanks for bringing us the local perspective.

I heard Rezko is building 100 story low cost housing apartments.

Low cost because government loans, and no need to heat them.

@1 got data? Or rumor only? Rezko was Obama's no. 1 fundraiser for years. Total donations linked to him is hundreds of thousands, very critical when you are a state senator just starting out.

Odrama is just another typical politician taking money fr. crooks. When his associates said or do some screwed up shit all his answers are "I don't know". What a freaking joke this guy is.

Rezko also contributed to G.W. Bush's campaigns, and supposedly hosted a fundraiser for W. in 2003 that raised $3.8 million for the Shrub. So if Obama goes down, this Bush guy is going down as well. Rezko rehabbed apartment buildings for the poor, and the churches and other charities that were clients of Obama's law firm were interested in housing the poor. So Rezko's meeting Obama was natural. But apparently Rezko and his partner Mahru mismanaged the business. Similarly it was natural for Obama to consult his real estate maven buddy Rezko when his book revenues made him think of buying a big-ass house.

Rezko contributed to a lot of politicians whom he liked, including fellow Arab Christian (and archconservative Republican) Spencer Abraham.
