Blagojevich Arrested. Obama Not Arrested

Posted in politics by roving on January 11, 2009

Governor Blago is arrested for pay to play. Obama has done the same thing but is not arrested. The great mystery is why Obama is able to do things that get others arrested.

Obama recieved $168,000 from Rezko and friends. Before it was confirmed he recieved $168,000 Obama the liar says he only recieved between %50,00-$60,000. Does this man EVER tell the truth?

Sun-Times 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  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.”

Does this or does this not look like a pay to play deal and why is Fitz letting him get away with it?
