Message to Tony Rezko has Obama's name all over it (Obama's letter to Rezko)
Chicago Tribune ^ | June 27, 2010 | John Kass

Letter addressed to convicted influence peddler has president's name on envelope

President Barack Obama

The White House

1600 Chicago Way

Dear President Obama: Get the Chicago Tribune delivered to your home for only $1 a week >>

It's been such a long time since we talked, and I know you're extremely busy taking command at work, but I hope this letter finds you well.

Chicago hasn't changed much. More Americans are shot in Chicago than in Iraq. The politicians keep getting rich. And you know about Rod Blagojevich's corruption trial.

What's up with that subpoena thing anyway? What was Rod thinking?

The mayor still runs things, but with all you folks in Washington, he gets lonely. He doesn't have anybody to talk to. Maybe you and Michelle should visit and give him some laughs, take him to Spiaggia for the gnocchi with the wild boar ragu.

But I'm not writing about boar ragu. It's something else.

It's a letter with your name on it in big capital letters, PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA.

It's postmarked June 16, 2010, and was mailed from Richmond, Va., with a 44-cent stamp. And, it's printed in soy ink on recycled paper, so it's eco-friendly.

But the fascinating part is whom the letter from PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA is addressed to:

Tony Rezko.

Yes, that Tony Rezko.

I'm not joking. This is a real letter.

Remember Tony? The "That's not the Tony Rezko I knew" Tony? Your personal real estate fairy who helped you buy that dream house in Kenwood? The Tony of your "boneheaded" move? Yeah, that guy.

Your letter was sent to one of Rezko's old business addresses in Chicago, and I got to take a look at it. I promised not to reveal the address if we could take a picture of it.

Then he got indicted, and you donated all of Tony's campaign contributions to charity. ... I noticed you didn't donate your house to charity.

Many of the comments at the article say it’s a form letter from the dnc. I have no clue, but zero sending a letter to rezko’s old address sounds unlikely to me.

From the November 7, 2008 transcript:

Blago: “Now, you know I’m under, you know, what I believe is disgusting federal investigations, with them out to get me and I, I’ve been nothin’ but fuckin’ tryin’ to be very honest in my administration. You know made some misjudgements, but compared to even Obama, you know, I believe I’m more pristine on Rezko than him.”

Obama better have sent a message to his man, Tony, else he may go straight from the White House to the Big House.

it probably is a form letter but why a stamp?
wouldn’t they use bulk mail?

Of course even 0dumbo isn’t stupid enough to send a letter , is he?

Several of the comments mentioned receiving the same letter. Heck,,, for some reason, I got one from Willy Clinton last week. I figure one of my lib musician buddies signed me up as a joke. Tweaking my nose, as it were,,,,,

The idea he sends letters is absurd.
