This needs to be bookmarked. It is THAT interesting. Info relating to Obama has been scrubbed, as usual with Obama.
This is juicy!
The donation is significant, for some believe Barack Obama may be one of the unnamed Illinois government officials mentioned in the following ABC News report on the FBI affidavit filed in US Attorney Fitzgeralds case against Rezko before Obamas political godfather was arrested on Monday:
According to an FBI affidavit filed in the case, Rezko sought to get a visa for Auchi to visit the United States by contacting certain Illinois government officials.
Rezko sought the visa on behalf of his friend in 2004, and Rezko helped Obama finance the real estate transaction involving his Kenwood mansion in 2005.
We also learn today that Auchis company has deleted information on two websites regarding Auchis visit to Illinois in 2004 upon hearing that rumors of a meeting between Auchi and Obama are circulating in the US.
An Iraq power plant is even involved. The Feds are definitely investigating this.
People here on FR who keep calling Obama "naive" are truly underinformed. There is dirt here that people like this Thomas guy have told the Feds that has yet to come out. Lucky the SunTimes has gotten word of some it and kept the story out there in recent weeks.
More recently, according to the FBI, Rezko had contacted "certain Illinois government officials" to help Auchi get a visa to the United States. Although the senator has stated that he did not work in any way to help Auchi receive a visa, news accounts raised questions of whether Rezko may at one time have introduced Obama to Auchi.
"[W]hen he was running for the Senate, Mr. Obama stopped by to shake hands while Mr. Rezko, an immigrant from Syria, was entertaining Middle Eastern bankers considering an investment in one of his projects," the New York Times reported in June 2007.
But Obama's campaign says that the senator never met with Auchi.
"He has no recollection of ever meeting him," wrote campaign spokesman Bill Burton in an e-mail to RAW STORY.

Thanks, the more they keep trying to scrub away Obamas dirty past, the more appears.
I’m going to enjoy seeing him trying to resolve some of these awkward questions if the dems are foolish enough to run with him. ;o)
