Where is Tony Rezko?, Obama and Blagojevich crony, Rezko knows where all the bodies are

“Why did the Illinois Senate Health & Human Services Committee, with Obama as chairman, create and push Bill 1332, “Illinois Health Facilities Planning Act,” early in 2003, which reduced the number of members on the Board from 15 to 9, just prior to rigging by Tony Rezko and Rod Blagojevich?”…Citizen Wells

“I believe I’m more pristine on Rezko than him.”…Rod Blagojevich

“Why were Stuart Levine and Tony Rezko not called as witnesses in the Blagojevich trials? FBI agent Daniel Cain testified in the Rezko trial. Why was agent Cain not questioned more in the Blagojevich trial?…Citizen Wells

“If the prosecution insists on going forward, I have two words for them: Rezko and Levine,” Cavise said. “They know where all the bodies are buried.””…Leonard Cavise,  DePaul University professor

Where is Tony Rezko, who is still awaiting sentencing after over 3 years?

Is anyone surprised by the lies and doubletalk coming from Blagojevich? Chicago is the capital of Orwellian speak, weasel words.

From the Chicago Tribune June 5, 2011.

“I can say with certitude that the emergence of the expressions “I can’t say with certitude” and “misdirection play” has made last week the greatest week for weasel words — at least since “not intended to be a factual statement” became a catchphrase earlier this year.”

“Blagojevich acknowledged once asking (his former chief of staff John) Harris to look into installing Patti (Blagojevich, the governor’s wife) on the Illinois Pollution Control Board, but the former governor said he did so only to test his preconceived “instinct” that it would not be proper. And Blagojevich said he had Harris arrange an interview for Patti with a Citigroup official, not to land a job, but so she could learn how not to stumble into a position with a “firm that was getting investments from my administration.”

So. Is “it was just a test” a better excuse than “that wasn’t a lie, it was simply a misdirection play,” “I was simply gathering material for a novel” or, my favorite, “don’t you know satire when you see it?”

That all depends on what the meaning of “is” is.”

Obama, Tony Rezko, Stuart Levine

From the Chicago SunTimes.

February 10, 2008.

“In the media, Obama always made it sound like he rarely saw Rezko, saying they met for breakfast or lunch once or twice a year. However, the FBI mole John Thomas helped investigators “build a record of repeat visits to the old offices of Rezko and former business partner Daniel Mahru’s Rezmar Corp., at 853 N. Elston, by Blagojevich and Obama during 2004 and 2005,“

During his March 14, 2008 interview, the Times told Obama, Thomas is an FBI mole and he “recently told us that he saw you coming and going from Rezko’s office a lot.”

“And three other sources told us that you and Rezko spoke on the phone daily.””

From the Tony Rezko Trial April 14, 2008.

“Stuart Levine, the prosecution’s star witness, said he and Obama were at a party Rezko threw at his Wilmette mansion on April 3, 2004, for Nadhmi Auchi, a controversial Iraqi-born billionaire who Rezko was trying to get to invest in a South Loop real-estate development.

Auchi, now a citizen of the United Kingdom, has faced criminal charges in Europe. He also figured in the revocation of Rezko’s bond early this year after attempting to wire him more than $3 million. Upon learning of that attempt, U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve declared Rezko a flight risk and ordered him held in a federal jail in the Loop.

The Rezko party in 2004 was designed to induce Auchi to pour money into the South Loop investment. Obama’s presence at the party was not previously known. At the time, Obama was fresh off a surprise win in the Illinois Democratic primary for U.S. Senate and was riding a crest of national publicity.”
