Why hasnt Rezko been sentenced yet? Its been almost two years since the Chicago real estate developer was convicted on bribery, fraud and money laundering charges.
After months of unexplained delays, Rezkos January 6th sentencing date was canceled again this time indefinitely by U.S. District Court Judge Amy St. Eve, a former Whitewater prosecutor. Reporters were initially told that Rezko was cooperating with prosecutors, but he apparently stopped talking and demanded to be sentenced as soon as possible. That request was obviously denied.
Well, it would seem that the focus of this article is the reason.
And besides, Rezko has no doubt already made his deal with Hussein.
Apparently Mr. Rezko is familiar with the name “McDougal”.
Watch for Rezko to get a presidential pardon when Obama is voted out in 2012.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Rezko was moved from Chicagos downtown Metropolitan Correctional Center on December 16th, even though its right across the street from the federal courthouse where Blago will be tried. Rezkos not listed on the federal Bureau of Prisons inmate locator, either.
Nobody knows where he is, a source in Chicago told The Examiner.
—spelling==December to a secure area that no one knows about.
