Obama hasn't shed Rezko yet

Despite efforts by left wing blogs to characterize Barack Obama's Tony Rezko problems as settled, that is far from the case. At the rabid Firedoglake blog, the lefties tried to pull an expressio uno (if you didn't mention it, it must not be significant) legal argument on me.

How pathetic is this? So much so that when Chicago-area Republican blogger Dan Curry was using the Rezko proffer in December as a club with which to beat up every local Democrat he could think of (most especially the proffer's actual main target, Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich), he didn't even bother with bashing Obama, even though Rezko's Obama connections had hit the news months earlier. However, Curry did later spread around the Rezko guilt by association with a mention of Hillary Clinton's ties to John Burgess of IPA, whose lawyer is named in the Rezko indictment.

Sorry, there's so much corruption and so many players mentioned in the Rezko saga that it is impossible to chronicle it all in the short-term. Expressio overwhelmingo.

This story in the Chicago Sun-Times today ought to be of concern to Barack. And Blagojevich.

Sources said Thomas helped investigators build a record of repeat visits to the old offices of Rezko and former business partner Daniel Mahru's Rezmar Corp., at 853 N. Elston, by Blagojevich and Obama during 2004 and 2005.

In one case, sources said, Thomas told authorities he saw a Rezmar employee pass an envelope with a visible wad of bills to an unidentified Blagojevich aide.

How many visits and when?
