As a state senator, he went to bat for now-indicted developer's deal"APPEAR TO CONTRADICT"!!?!?
As a state senator, Barack Obama wrote letters to city and state officials supporting his political patron Tony Rezko's successful bid to get more than $14 million from taxpayers to build apartments for senior citizens. The deal included $855,000 in development fees for Rezko and his partner, Allison S. Davis, Obama's former boss, according to records from the project, which was four blocks outside Obama's state Senate district.
Obama's letters, written nearly nine years ago, for the first time show the Democratic presidential hopeful did a political favor for Rezko -- a longtime friend, campaign fund-raiser and client of the law firm where Obama worked -- who was indicted last fall on federal charges that accuse him of demanding kickbacks from companies seeking state business under Gov. Blagojevich.The letters appear to contradict a statement last December from Obama, who told the Chicago Tribune that, in all the years he's known Rezko, "I've never done any favors for him.''
SHIT. THEY PROVE HE EFFIN LIED.
- THIS CORRUPT PIECE OF CRAP REZKO WAS OBAMA'S MOST IMPORTANT, BIGGEST AND OLDEST POLITICAL SUPPORTER.
- OBAMA'S INTERVENTION DIRECTLY HELPED REZKO.
- END OF STORY.
