Is Rezko Talking About Obama,Alderman Burke,and Congressman Gutierrez? Prosecutors talking to Rezko, seek to delay sentencing
The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
.But, one has to wonder what Rezko is talking about because Rod Blagojevich(Public Official ‘A’ Rezko Trial) and his wife were on the Feds radar? Is Rezko talking to the Feds about Obama,Cook County Board President Todd Stroger,or how Alderman Burke did “legal” work.Or Democratic Congressman Luis Gutierrez’s excellent real estate deal:
Rep. Luis Gutierrez got a deal on a riverfront town house built by Antoin “Tony” Rezko, a developer and prominent political fund-raiser now under indictment for an alleged kickback scheme involving state pension funds.
Giannoulias is so tainted by reputed mob links that several top Illinois Dems, including the states speaker of the House and party chairman, refused to endorse him even after he won the Democratic nomination with Obamas help.

The Citizen Wells blog began researching Obamas ties to Alexi Giannoulias and other Chicago and Illinois corruption figures months ago. This blog posted an article about Alexi Giannoulias, Dan Shomon and corruption on May 14, 2008. Here is an exerpt from the article:
Like the ill-advised connection to Obama in Aurora, thanks to Dan Shomon, Obama is mentioned in the same discusion with all these problems with Giannoulias.
Shomons main activities are political campaigns and helping Obama and his friends like Alexi Giannoulias who is now the Treasurer for the State of Illinois.
