Top Obama fundraiser Tony Rezko sentenced to 10-1/2 years

Future Obama PardonChicago Corruption raises it’s ugly head.  Had you not read it here or at Michele Malkin, you might have missed it.  Seems that the Mainstream media is not interested with an Obama connection and jail.

But the onetime top fund-raiser to Rod Blagojevich and former friend of Barack Obama remained steady even as St. Eve handed down a 10 ½ year sentence for corruption, describing Rezko’s actions during the former governor’s tenure as “selfish and corrupt.”

“You defrauded the people of Illinois. You engaged in extensive corruption throughout the state of Illinois,” St. Eve said. “This sentence must send a message that enough is enough.”
