Now, it turns out that one of Hillary’s national Co-chairmen of her Presidential campaign has also accepted political contributions from him.
The donations could prove to be a political embarrassment for Clinton, who accused Obama in a South Carolina debate of representing Rezko “in his slum landlord business” when Obama was a young Chicago lawyer.
Rezko has been a patron of Illinois politicians for years and Obama’s connections to Rezko go back more than 15 years. Rezko has contributed thousands of dollars to the campaigns of both Obama and Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Neither has been accused of any wrongdoing.
Hillary might be embarassed.
Flap wonders if Obama will mention Norman Hsu who is serving time in a California prison for fraud while he is being investigated and indicted by the Feds for illegal Democrat campaign contributions.
Oh yeah, Obama took money from Hsu too.
So, never mind.
