Breaking Story: Prosecutor Fitzgerald Could Send Obama To Jail
StopTheACLU.com (re: a Chicago Sun times story) ^ | October 12, 2008 | na

Posted on 10/12/2008 1:47:35 PM PDT by forYourChildrenVote4Bush

The Sun Times today gave a major clue that Barack Obama will indeed go down with Tony Rezko, sooner rather than later. It looks as though Rezko is about to turn on Alexi Giannoulias, the 30-year old State Treasurer of Illinois (who was elected only because Obama backed him).

This has repeatedly been posted but I see nothing about Obama and even if it does involve him it ain’t gonna happen in 3 weeks.

I would love to be wrong about this.

As much as I wish it were true I don’t think Rezco is going to turn on his buddy. He looks more than likely going to turn on the State Treasurer and Governor of Illinois.

Rezco needs Obama to win....if Obama wins he may get a pardon....if not??

Exactly!

Why is this at “stop.aclu” and not the “chicago tribune”?

Prank or not?

Somebody’s theories are no good if they lie to get you to read them.

It uses as it’s source a Chicago newspaper, which makes me think it’s disinformation.

The only thing that we know is the following, all the rest is pure speculation.

Michael Sneed in her Sun Times column 10/10/08 had the following tidbit:

"Sneed hears rumbles political fund-raiser/fixer Tony 
Rezko, who is now singing sweetly to the feds from his 
cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, has been 
talking about his “dealings” with a Chicago bank, which 
has political connections."

Maybe we can have some enterprising journalist ask 0bama if he plans on pardoning Rezko if elected President.President Bush was asked this same question 100 times regarding Scooter Libby.

Exactly. Rezko’s counting on an 0bama win so he gets sprung. He isn’t about to sell out his pass out of prison.

Right. This has been boo bait here for day’s. Fitz will never hand down an indictment unless there is a Republican involved. Maybe he can tie this to Rove. Then and only then will you see action. Our money is not secure and our votes don’t count. Nice huh ?

Hillbuzz has been hot on this. Here are some links:

“If you haven’t been a regular here at HillBuzz, you might not know about Gigi Gaston’s documentary “We Will Not Be Silenced” on the caucus fraud deliberately orchestrated by
the Obama campaign during the primaries. Voter intimidation, registration fraud, vandalism, threats of violence, you name it, Obama’s supporters did it.” [snip]

“Alexi Giannoulias, the Illinois state treasurer that Obama endorsed when he ran for office despite no previous political experience, who has been personally mixed up with

political fund-raiser/fixer Tony Rezko, who is now singing sweetly to the feds from his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, has been talking about his “dealings” with a Chicago bank, which has political connections.”

Imagine what Rezcos time in prison OR out would be like if he turned on Bambi.

He’d just as well Vince Foster himself, as opposed to the old plier and blowtorch treatment he’d experience.

How could BO not afford that house with his wife making 300k and BO’s Senator salary and book royalties? Why would he need a special favor?

Also, does endorsing an inexperienced person qualify as a crime?

Just seems to me this might be hard to prove...but who knows...

Obama can't be sent to jail after 1/20/09. It's VERY unlikely that a Grand Jury would indict, or the government prosecute, a president-elect. I would almost take the position that the government should not do so (just as I think opposite-party ex-presidents should not be indicted or prosecuted, and for the same reason).

So, as they say, time is of the essence.

The MSM wouldn't care if Obama robbed a bank and shot a child. Or bombed a building and killed a cop - or if he was friends with people who did. Or used cocaine or took bribes or anything. The MSM is BIASED.

A BIG STORY would be if the MSM could catch Sarah jay walking.

Rezko's deal said that he had to reveal all. If Obama is defeated, Obama may get nailed by Rezko. If Obama wins, Rezko gets pardoned by Obama on Jan 21 and the investigations will be ordered terminated by the new AG.
