Rezko is the smoking gun that McCain can’t wait to exploit. I’m not sure of course, but I think it’s likely the reason republicans have been working so hard to get Obama to be the Dem nominee, as evidenced by the fact that they have spent millions in several primaries advertising against Clinton, and none on Obama, and have also voted for him in huge numbers in a number of primaries that weren’t so close on the Republican side.
Obama would like you to believe it’s much ado about nothing. That, however, is disingenuous. Obama has a long, and some might say, and will say, sordid relationship with Rezko. He has given vast amounts to Obama over the years, and Obama in turn has ignored conditions of the slumlord’s properties in his own district, and pushed business Rezko’s way on numerous occasions to the detriment of his constituents.
It also appears that Rezko helped pay for Obama’s new digs, and though the way they worked the system may not be technically illegal, unless some communications later turn up, it was definitely unethical, especially considering the fact that Rezko was under federal investigation at the time.
