Tony Rezko sentencing delayed, Judge St. Eve delays again, December 16, 2008, Rezko Blagojevich and Obama linked, Rezko contributions to Obama, Obama indictment next?
Why Barack Obama should be indicted
One or more of the following events should happen:
- Obama steps down.
- Obama is forced to prove eligibility.
- Obama is indicted and/or arrested.
If one of the above does not occur within a few months,
perhaps we should look to the Declaration of Independence
or Thomas Jefferson, for our next strategy.
The Chicago Tribune, in an article dated December 16, 2008,
has revealed that the sentencing of Tony rezko has been
delayed again. Apparently Rezko has been talking and revealing
corruption links to Blagovich and other lawmakers. Obama’s name
was mentioned during the Rezko trial and Patrick Fitzgerald has
recently been investigating a real estate deal between Rezko
and Obama. Here is an exerpt from the Tribune article:
“Fundraiser Rezko’s sentencing delayed _ could add to Illinois Gov. Blagojevich’s problems

CHICAGO (AP) — Jailed political fundraiser Tony Rezko’s sentencing for corruption was delayed indefinitely Tuesday, most likely adding to the legal problems of embattled Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
The sentencing date of Jan. 6 was erased by U.S. District Judge Amy J. St. Eve. The action appeared to signal that Rezko’s on-again, off-again relationship with the federal prosecutors investigating Illinois government was on again.
Both federal spokesman Randall Samborn and Rezko’s chief defense counsel, Joseph Duffy, declined to comment after the hearing. Duffy responded to a blizzard of questions by saying, “Merry Christmas, everybody.”
Rezko was a major adviser to Blagojevich and raised more than $1 million for his campaign fund. He started talking to federal prosecutors last summer, a few weeks after he was convicted of fraud, money laundering and bribery-related counts in June.
Then he stopped talking and demanded to be sentenced as soon as possible. Now that January date is canceled.”
“News stories about Rezko’s trial had put a spotlight on then-candidate Obama, who tried to distance himself from Rezko and sent $150,000 in Rezko-related contributions to charity. All of those contributions were to Obama’s state legislative and U.S. House and Senate campaigns — not his presidential race. Obama also had to answer questions about an unrelated 2006 real estate deal with Rezko that Obama now calls a mistake.”
