The ObaMobocracy: The Chicago Way

Mr Blagojevich, notoriously, sought money in exchange for an appointment to a seat in the Senate. Other convictions may have been less spectacular, but the pattern of pay-offs for political favours has prevailed in these parts for 150 years

Yes, reminiscent.

This has been percolating for a while. Some news on the Obama bankroller, now convicted felon, Tony Rezko: Bombshell: Former Rezko partner says he gave Tony $400K for Obama:
About April 2011, Frawley, along with Daniel Mahru, a former business associate of Rezko dating back to 1989, and a former business partner of current White House Advisor Valerie Jarrett, began conversations with Cooley concerning collaboration on a book about Chicago corruption.

Frawley’s claim that the money he gave Rezko went to Obama is alluded to in a December 1, 2010 deposition executed in the context of a legal malpractice complaint filed by Frawley, on July 9, 2010, against his former attorney and long-time friend, George Weaver.

It's that old Yes We Can come back to haunt Barack.

And it couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Most likely, though, this story will die.

Unless Patrick Fitz picks it up--finally. Gee, what are the odds of that. Because we can't depend on the MSM.

Vote out The Chicago Way in the White House this November, folks. And we'll keep trying to drive a stake through its heart here. Somehow.
