Obama and Rezko: Follow the Money

A little complicated and tortuous, but then again, the NYT bent itself over backwards to make McCain have the appearance of impropriety, infidelity or both. What's good for the goose...

And here, a UK Times investigation is uncovering the substance of what could be a real potential scandal; there is nothing but dollars, cents, denials to speak with the press and political influence sprinkled with multi-million dollar loans from foreign entities, shady real estate deals, and an indicted slumlord. Follow the $$$! Who does it benefit? You guessed it: The Lord Your Obama.

James Bone and Dominic Kennedy reported February 25, 2008, in the The Times (UK) that on May 23, 2005—just three weeks before Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and Rita Rezko, the wife of indicted political fixer Antoin "Tony" Rezko, closed on their same-day real estate deals on June 15, 2005—Fintrade Services SA, a Panamanian company related to Iraqi billionaire businessman Nadhmi Auchi, "lent" $3.5 million to Tony Rezko.

Bone and Kennedy wrote that their investigation "raises the question of whether funds from Nadhmi Auchi, one of Britain’s wealthiest men, helped Mr Obama buy his mock Georgian mansion in Chicago."

Much, much more here at Rezko Watch. Yes, it's a random Hillary-supporting blog, but they're flinging the dirt like there's no tomorrow, and the GOP would be wise to at the very least take a peak here (they won't, because the GOP has a permanent aversion to sound political advice in recent years).
