Same old thing: Chicago Way, pay to play. Gutierrez has been a big mouth on liberal immigration policies.
.. Another Chicago politician on the take - Rezko/Pay to Play list .. Ping!
Wondering if this Rezko stuff is building to a ‘coming
scandal,’ ala the WH Insider.
Also remember the Auchi connection and the ‘Broadway Barry’ comment:
A new headache for Giannoulias? Another Rezko loan
His family bank lent $22.75 million, in newly uncovered deal
August 2, 2010
News reports had linked Rezko, a key adviser and campaign fund-raiser for then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich, to shady deals involving state pension funds — among the crimes that ultimately would send him to prison.
This was the Tony Rezko who, looking for millions of dollars for a massive South Loop development, turned to Broadway Bank, owned by the family of Alexi Giannoulias. Giannoulias, the Democrat now running for U.S. Senate, had left his post as a senior loan officer at the Chicago bank in late 2005 to mount a successful campaign for Illinois state treasurer, though he still held an ownership stake in the bank.
Rezko’s company asked. And Broadway Bank came through.
On Feb. 14, 2006, newly obtained records show, the bank made a $22.75 million loan to a company called Riverside District Development LLC, whose owners, it turns out, included Rezko.
You won’t find Rezko’s name on any documents filed in the public record in connection with the loan.
But Rezko acknowledged his ownership stake in Riverside District Development to a federal judge about a year after the loan was made, according to a transcript of the court hearing.
Following Rezko’s indictment in October 2006, he and his lawyers met in January 2007 with U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve to discuss his assets.
During that closed-door hearing, Rezko disclosed his ownership stake in Riverside District Development, the company that got the $22.75 million loan from Broadway Bank. Rezko’s lawyers said his main partner in Riverside was General Mediterranean Holding, a Luxembourg company controlled by Iraq-born billionaire Nadhmi Auchi.
Jeez...you’d think every politician in Illinois got a sweetheart deal from this guy....oops
Why does the info get out only AFTER the elections?
Every crook in Chicago got a deal from Rezko.
Including of course Obama, a fact long hidden by the democrat party controllede media.
Rahm Emanuel is running for mayor.
Expect a lot of dirt to come out on a lot of Chicagoans - provided they’re not in Emanuel’s pocket.
Jesse Jagmo Junior took his hit a couple of months back when Emanuel first floated his candidacy, and the machine is busy behind the scenes promoting a number of half-baked black candidates (Carol Moseley Braun, anyone?) so as to split the black vote.
Now they’ve got to knock down any Hispanic problems - sorry Luis, you could be in the way.
Oh, and Rahm’s ties to Blago and Tony? They’ll look into that *after* the mayoral election.
