The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that Osama Barama Bananarama, the untalented doop who thinks he can be President after 2 years in the US Senate, was heavily involved in helping Tony Rezko, a crooked land dealer, steal $14 million from taxpayers. Obama's response? "There's nothing here." And the media, except for a few examples, tend to agree, because they would love to have a black crook in the White House as long as he has a "D" after his name.
Obama's letters for Rezko
As a state senator, Barack Obama wrote letters to city and state officials supporting his political patron Tony Rezko's successful bid to get more than $14 million from taxpayers to build apartments for senior citizens.
The deal included $855,000 in development fees for Rezko and his partner, Allison S. Davis, Obama's former boss, according to records from the project, which was four blocks outside Obama's state Senate district.
Obama's letters, written nearly nine years ago, for the first time show the Democratic presidential hopeful did a political favor for Rezko -- a longtime friend, campaign fund-raiser and client of the law firm where Obama worked -- who was indicted last fall on federal charges that accuse him of demanding kickbacks from companies seeking state business under Gov. Blagojevich.
The letters appear to contradict a statement last December from Obama, who told the Chicago Tribune that, in all the years he's known Rezko, "I've never done any favors for him."
On Tuesday, Bill Burton, press secretary for Obama's presidential campaign, said the letters Obama wrote in support of the development weren't intended as a favor to Rezko or Davis.
"This wasn't done as a favor for anyone," Burton said in a written statement. "It was done in the interests of the people in the community who have benefited from the project.
This is now a major scandal - one that Obama and the media are trying to cover up.
Write your congressman, your US Senator, your local media outlet, and ask: what is being done to investigate how a sitting US Senator, running for President, helped a buddy steal millions from the American people? Do we have to wait until this scumbag Obama is under oath and lies about it before we get something moving?
