Posted on 12/10/2008 8:27:38 PM PST by tcrlaf
I'm trying to find info and links to what Bill O'reilly just said on his show, NAMELY that Patricia Blagojevich was the Real Estate Broker in the Rezko-Obama land deal!!
IF TRUE, this could explain how Obama "Paid" for Governor Blutarsky's support for his Senate run!!!
ANY AND ALL HELP IS APPRECIATED....
I am finding links and story's from the trib describing some of her crooked deals, and she was a partner of Rezko's in his Real Estate ventures.
She has a "Home-Based" Real Estate business called "RIVER REALTY".
THANX IN ADVANCE!! LET's GET TO WORK!!
Another inside deal for governor's wife Brokered condo sale for state contractor By David Kidwell, John Chase and Ray Long | Tribune staff reporters November 4, 2007 1 2 next Gov. Rod Blagojevich's wife received the real estate commission in a $650,000 condominium sale from a businessman who since has won $10 million in no-bid state contracts.
The seller was Mark T. Wight, owner of Wight & Company, an architecture firm that won three new contracts with the state's toll highway authority after the 2005 sale. The buyer was John R. Wyma, Wight's tollway lobbyist and a longtime Blagojevich insider.
It is the third time the Tribune has disclosed similar commissions earned by the first lady and her home-based real estate business, revealing a steady income to the Blagojevich household from key political supporters, fundraisers and state contractors.
The governor's chief spokeswoman declined to elaborate on the deal, but said Patricia Blagojevich earned "a standard commission for her work."
Related links State's audit of firm sought A standard commission ranges from 4 percent to 6 percent, which would put her fee between $26,000 and $39,000 since she was the only real estate agent in the deal.
From Your Link:
“Q: Who was your Realtor? Did this Realtor also represent Rita Rezko?
A: Miriam Zeltzerman, who had also represented me in the purchase of my prior property, a condominium, in Hyde Park. She did not represent Rita Rezko.”
So, can we assume that Mrs. Bluto Represented REZKO??
19:52 If you knew what goes on in the sausage factory, youd run screaming into the night. Or grab your shotgun and kill some folks and then maybe yourself. I just finished a half-hour argument/debate/tutoring session with one of the most powerful people in the mainstream media. It was about Obama/Rezko. This person, in charge of many, many others, thought he knew probably all their was to know about the Obama Rezko land deal. He thought it was about a sweetheart deal over a strip of land for a driveway. He thought this because the Chicago press did a pristine job of hiding the real story from everyone, the fact that Rezko, a known buyer of political influence, which is illegal, actually bought influence with Obama by purchasing expensive land for him, not by selling him a little strip of land at a discount. The entire MSM took the Sun-Times voucher that they had fully vetted Rezko and Obamas dealings, and that the False Prophet was clean. Nothing cold be further from the truth. They carefully avoided the real question, did Obama and Rezko violate the law through a conspiracy whereby Rezko would purchase land on Obamas behalf? The fact that this person, in his position of supervising so many reporters, was as unaware of the reality of the situation as he was, stupefied me, but went a long way toward explaining why The Dark One has gotten as far as he has. And then suddenly in the conversation/argument, it was my fault. I started getting yelled at; Why didnt you come to me this two months ago, asshole!? And he was right. But I was also right when I told him I was now doing a job with my own investigators that he should have been doing nine months ago. Were now both working to get something done, although he still carries an air of thinking that nothing Obamas done in the past matters anymore. I asked him if it mattered if it was discovered that Obama had murdered a nun. Perhaps more to the point he seemed resigned, beaten, the fight taken out of him. Too much of our leadership is suffering from this defeatist attitude, this illness, this weakness. As such, they have abdicated their responsibilities to us. Before some rays of light pierced the cloud over his head, he asked me to keep him apprised blow by blow of what my investigations yielded. He was literally handing his own job over to me, a private citizen relying on private donations, to do a job he should have been supervising so very long ago. Not one person at any major news organization has even spoken to the people that Rezko and Obama bought the land from, throughout the entire campaign. Shortly after some more back and forth screaming, he climbed aboard the bandwagon. About an hour later, stupefied, I watched Bill OReilly, clearly in some post-recent epiphany mode, basically repeat a newbies version of my end of the conversation. Like a man beginning to see the light, he spoke of the Obama/Rezko land deal as having much more to it and an explosive story. Ive been saying this for months, and with God as my witness I swear the current President-elect would never have beaten Hillary Clinton if this had been reported when it should have. There is little investigation required to prove it. Why is this different from the myriad other scandals that this Potus-elect of shit has survived? Its a crime, indictable, and it is the first one to demonstrate that Obama will lie, not technically but completely, to his own constituents, and is therefor incapable of holding their confidence. Yes everybody, the Federal Governement is no longer responsible for enforcing the Constitution by verifying the elegibility of people to be President, and the media is no longer responsible for doing the investigative reporting required for vetting Presidential candidates. Both have told us to our faces that these things are now our job. Brave new world, led by brave people, eh?http://patdollard.com/2008/12/for-sale/#comment-341516
: Who was your Realtor? Did this Realtor also represent Rita Rezko?
A: Miriam Zeltzerman, who had also represented me in the purchase of my prior property, a condominium, in Hyde Park. She did not represent Rita Rezko.
I think the article says the realtor was Miriam Zelterman, is she Mrs. Blogowitch?
OBAMA’s Realter was Zelterman...
The question is, who was REZKO’s agent on the deal.
Wikipedia article says that Patti Blagojevich “was a business partner of Rezko’s for at least a decade” — she could well have been the realtor for Rezko in the Obama transactions (so that she could receive the commissions etc.) but I haven’t seen confirmation of that.
Tony Rezko indictment and trial
On October 11, 2006, Blagojevich fundraisers and businessmen Antonin “Tony” Rezko and Stuart Levine were indicted for participation in a scheme to obtain kickbacks from investment firms seeking business from two state boards. Levine pleaded guilty two weeks later and agreed to testify against Rezko.
The governor’s wife, Patricia Blagojevich, was a business partner of Rezko’s for at least a decade. In 2004, she received over $38,000 in real estate commissions from him.
In October 2006, it was revealed that Patricia Blagojevich, a licensed real estate broker, earned $113,700 in commissions from Anita and Amrish Mahajan. These were the only commissions earned by Patricia Blagojevich that year. Anita Mahajan owns a urinalysis company that holds a no-bid contract with the state Department of Children and Family Services. Amrish Mahajan is president of a bank that has two requests pending before state regulators to acquire two out-of-state banks.
In December 2007, Blagojevich campaign boss Chris Kelly was indicted on federal charges of tax fraud. The charges against Kelly were not related to the governor or any political work. However, Kelly has been listed as a “co-schemer” in court filings related to the Rezko case. According to prosecutors, Kelly was involved in pressuring prospective state contractors for “finder’s fees” or political contributions. At the time of Rezko’s indictment, Blagojevich described his relationship with Kelly: “They’re two different people, by the way, and it’s a different relationship. Chris and I are much closer. Chris is the head of my political campaign. That’s someone I talk to a lot more frequently.”
But this is Chicago after all..........
Patty & Rezko were partners for 8 yers.
"Rezko had a spot in the front row at the last inauguration, when he was advising Rod Blagojevich on sensitive appointments to powerful state jobs. First Lady Patti Blagojevich was a Rezko business partner for about a decade, receiving more than $38,000 in real estate commissions from him in 2004."
I would say Rezko is talking.

i cant wait for blago to start talking!!!!! obama made a mistake for throwing him under the bus so soon! will come back to haunt him!
We have no leaders. We have crooks. I think Obama should resign.
biden wouldn’t be so bad since it will take about 3 days for him to resign because of the risk his head will explode (serious aneurism and plagiarism history - either condition can cause the head to explode).
Look for the Michelle Obama link to Daley also. What a web we weave..............
“it will take about 3 days for him to resign because of the risk his head will explode”
But NOT before Hillary gets sworn in as VP....
The next round of leaders are coming from places you would probably not expect. We may be the “remnant” but we will carry the seed of freedom to the next cycle.
Look for the troops returning from the “War on Terror” to change the political future of this Nation. Look for people coming out of the most oppressed segments of this Nation to find their voices. All races, all backgrounds, its going to be all different.
Pray without ceasing.
Chances are, Blago's attorney is trying to bargain with Zero for a pardon, and I'll bet Barry's got someone listening to what Blutarsky's got.
The Real Barack Obama website has covered this issue in very great detail extensively for months and months. See their archives at the link below. It’s all there.
No cigar on a link but some interesting things:
This one is pretty interesting and one of the links is scrubbed;
Not relevant to this but interesting:
why hasn’t anyone talked to the doctor that they bought the house from? Why was the link removed regarding the paper work that had to be done to acquire that home due to it’s historical status?
I totally agree, this is kinda like a movie, watch it all unfold, names will come out in this and BHO has too many unsavory associations in the Chicago Machine.
I am praying that just this once they will arrest the real crooks. Obama is a good place to start. He knows he is up to his neck in this. Then maybe they start arresting and getting rid of all of the other crooks such as Bill and Hillary. Maybe they share side by side jail cells.
Wonder what he told them?
The Speaker of the House is third in line, not the Secretary of State.
http://rezkowatch.blogspot.com/ has been following and trying to figure out the Obama house/Rita Rezko paying for their side yard since Jan or so. They are pretty good about answering emails or comments
Bump and bookmark
Biden can’t be as devious as the others—he doesn’t have the brain power.
I believe the Rezko Watch website changed their name and location to The Real Barack Obama website after anti-obama websites were being attacked on blogspot.com during the election if memory serves me correctly.
Thanks that makes sense about the name change.
I emailed her(him?) last night and she doesn’t know who Rita’s realtor was BUT will be looking into it.
This article was pretty interesting, Drudge posted it the other day, but it is from October, to bad no on reported on it then. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2008/oct/18/whistleblower-hits-obama-friends-appraisal/
I expect Biden is not too happy being mired in these “Chicago Pols’” muck!
Mentioned on O’Reilly last night also. . .
Biden? Oh right; Obama’s token Vice President. Am sure he has much to say on this; if only someone would ask!
You’re right... doesn’t seem to be too many journalists asking. I wonder if he might be “Advisor A?” (sarcasm)
Did you ever determine if “Patti Blagojevich” was the realator for “Rita Rezko”? That would be very telling.
Is this the agent you’re looking for?
The Obamas closed on their house in June 2005. On the same day, Rezko’s wife, Rita, purchased the vacant lot for $625,000. They later sold a portion of the lot to the Obamas, for $104,500, so the family could expand its yard. The Rezkos then paid $14,000 to build a fence along the property line.
The sale was brokered by real estate agent Donna Schwan, who’d known Rezko when he lived in the neighborhood. Asked who approached her about the house, Schwan told Salon, “I honestly don’t remember. Tony Rezko lived across the street, so he’d been interested in the lot.”
Last year, Rezko sold the vacant lot to his attorney, Michael Sreenan, who is now peddling it for $950,000.
Why would he think otherwise; given his and everyone elses 'success' with this program of 'Favored Advancement'?
Oh well; this story will only take on the sound, of 'crickets chirping'; and surely nothing more.
Meantime; I am wondering; 'WHERE' IS Michelle? Still going to work - earning that paycheck? Might she, instead, be sitting home with a 'body guard'insuring such; and with duck tape on her mouth; waiting for her husband to return or 'what'?
