World Net Daily is reporting that while Barack Obama is not accused of wrong-doing (yet) in connection with Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich’s attempts to sell the President-Elect’s former US Senate seat, he may have problems of his own.
“Another Chicago Case Tied to Obama” says a separate civil case in Chicago asserts the president-elect benefited from a shady land deal orchestrated by convicted felon Antonin “Tony” Rezko.
WND obtained a copy of the civil complaint filed in October with the Illinois Circuit Court in Cook County by former real estate credit analyst Kenneth J. Conner.
Conner alleges he was fired by his former employer, Mutual Bank of Harvey, Ill., because he objected to land appraisals submitted on behalf of the Rezkos and the Obamas with the complicity of the bank.
More of the Democrat Culture of Corruption! Wasn’t Nancy Pelosi supposed to get rid of all the corruption in poliitics? The article also says:
In 2005, Obama admitted to the Washington Post the property deal he made while Rezko already was under federal investigation was a “bonehead mistake.”
The transaction involved Obama purchasing a multi-million-dollar home in Chicago’s trendy Kenwood neighborhood, across the street from the Rezkos, at a discounted price. On the same day, Rezko’s wife purchased a strip of land adjacent to the Obamas for the full asking price then sold it to the Obamas for $300,000 less.
