Chicago, IL—Federal prosecutors have asked for an indefinite postponement of the sentencing of Syrian born, convicted political moneyman Tony Rezko. Rezko is famous for his fundraising for Governor Rod Blagojevich, Barack Obama and others.
Rezko knows where then bones are buried and has been drawing maps for federal prosecutors and investigators that are planning to use the information to help some important Chicago politicians get extended stays at Club Fed.
Blagojevich will join Kerner, Walker, and Ryan as Illinois governors gone wrong.
My Chicago friends inside the Dirkson federal building are telling me the political landscape will be changing. They say that Blagojevich, Barack and Michelle Obama are at the top of the list. They’re gunning for Michelle Obama too. I’ve been told there is more to that sweet deal on a Hyde Park Obama palace then we could ever imagine.
Is this wishful thinking or the real deal? I’ve been told the justice department has brought in extra folks from the FBI, and IRS to handle forensic accounting along with a small army of forensic computer experts. There is even some connection to at least one violent Chicago street gang.
Why should Rezko spill his guts since the conventional wisdom is Obama would issue a pardon to Rezko for his silence if he became President? I guess that old proverb about a bird in the hand is true.
For whatever reason they are moving in a hurry, perhaps for one of those October surprises.
