Obama Golfed in Hawaii with Former Rezko Crony

While on vacation in Hawaii this month, President Obama played golf with Allison Davis, a former business partner of Tony Rezko who also helped give Obama his start in the legal profession.

Rezko is the former Obama associate and fundraiser who was convicted of corruption and fraud and currently sits in prison.

Davis, who is male, partnered with Rezko on a series of government-funded low and mixed income housing development projects in Chicago. While Davis himself has never been charged with wrongdoing, a number of the projects were high-priced failures that resulted in poor living conditions for residents.

According to a June 2008 exposé in the Boston Globe, one of the most egregious projects Davis helped create was Grove Parc Plaza, an assembly of “squat brick buildings” located in Obama’s former state senate district. According to the Globe:

About 99 of the units are vacant, many rendered uninhabitable by unfixed problems, such as collapsed roofs and fire damage. Mice scamper through the halls. Battered mailboxes hang open. Sewage backs up into kitchen sinks. In 2006, federal inspectors graded the condition of the complex an 11 on a 100-point scale – a score so bad the buildings now face demolition.

Valerie Jarrett, the Kenyan’s chief of staff and Shadow POTUS, is herself a wealthy Chicago slumlord. His Highness prefers the company of such people.

Remember they tried like hell to tie him with Enron and Ken (Kenny Boy) Lay. And of course, Dick Cheney and Haliburton were demonized everyday in the MSM because um - just because.....
