Rezko bomb ticking even louder
This is bad news for two of Illinois' most prominent Democrats.
For Barack Obama, it just draws more attention to the worst stain on his public career.
For Governor Rod Blagojevich, it locks Tony down in jail until his Feb. 25 trial date. A few days in the notorious Metropolitan Correction Center in downtown Chicago and he might be more willing to testify against Rod. In the government's filing today, it alleges that Rezko was clandestinely funneling assets to family and friends, including Rod's other top indicted fundraiser, Chris Kelly.
