Obama: Sleeping with Dogs (many)

Soros, malevolent puppetmaster, will back his new toy and  clean up Obama’s mess here.  For the black hand of Soros  this is childs play but still this is ugly. Soros will use his varous nefarious network of orgs to cover the dirty money givebacks. But this tie to organized crime and political  money fixes would sink any candidate (it would certainly destroy a repub).

While Obama is trying  distance himself  from 
Antoin ”Tony” Rezko, real estate developer and fast-food
magnate facing federal corruption charges, saying he had no indication of any
problems when he accepted thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from him, a new revelation has emerged from the court docs of Rezko criminal trial that implicates Obama in a new dirty deal. Apparently Obama hired the son of Joseph Aramanda, a Rezko business associate who was named
as an unindicted co-conspirator in a federal corruption case against
Rezko. Aramanda has contributed $11,500 to Obama since 2000
….

First off, Rezko is no ordinary gansta. According to the The New York Crimes who tried to put it in the best light possible under the headline" Obama Seeks Distance from Indicted Donor" (sorry I will not provide a link to that enemy of America. No way will I increase their circ so they can sell advertising);

”In terms of appearances, and I’ve already said this, that I should not have
entered into any kind of agreement with him,” Obama told ABC’s ”Good Morning
America.”

Obama has also given to charity about $37,000 in contributions to his Senate
campaign and political action committee that were linked to Rezko.
Rezko also
raised tens of thousands of dollars for Obama’s state legislative and Senate
races.

During the weekend, Obama gave to charity more than $40,000 in past political
contributions linked to Rezko.

Rezko faces a Feb. 25 trial, almost three weeks after the Super Tuesday
primaries that could go a long way in settling the Democratic nomination. He is
charged with fraud, attempted extortion and money laundering for allegedly
plotting to get campaign money and payoffs from firms seeking to do business

two state boards.

Once that trial is behind him, the 53-year-old Rezko faces a separate federal
charge of swindling the General Electric Capital Corp. out of $10 million in
connection with the sale of pizza restaurants.

But it wasn’t merely taking vast sums of dirty dough, it was personal transactions as well (covered at Atlas previously here);

…..Obama acknowledged a
mistake in buying property from Rezko in January 2006 — a deal that
enlarged the senator’s yard in the Kenwood neighborhood on the South
Side. The transaction occurred at a time when it was widely known Rezko
was under investigation by the U.S. attorney’s office.

“It was a mistake to have been engaged with him at all in this
or any other personal business dealing that would allow him, or anyone
else, to believe that he had done me a favor,” [said Obama]

Rezko was indicted in October for allegedly trying to collect
nearly $6 million in kickbacks from government deals and trying to
shake down a Hollywood producer for $1.5 million in campaign
contributions to Gov. Blagojevich.

Obama and Rezko have been friends since 1990, and the Wilmette
businessman has raised as much as $60,000 in campaign contributions for
him.
(more here).

Here’s the latest:

In addition to a land deal, Sen. Barack Obama’s ties to indicted
dealmaker Antoin “Tony” Rezko include an internship the senator
provided the son of a contributor at the request of Rezko
, an Obama
spokesman confirmed today.

Gibbs said he did not know whether Obama was considering
returning any contributions from Aramanda given his alleged role in the
federal corruption cases against Rezko
and former Teachers Retirement
System board member Stuart Levine.

Aramanda is identified as “Individual D” in Rezko’s
indictment. And when Levine pleaded guilty in October, Aramanda again
was listed as “Individual D.”

Aramanda was identified by the Sun-Times as “Individual D,” who
allegedly received a $250,000 kickback tied to a scheme to steer
lucrative state pension deals to firms and consultants that donated to
Blagojevich. Aramanda is not specifically named or charged with
criminal wrongdoing in the court papers. He could not be reached for
comment Saturday.

Aramanda has contributed $11,500 to Obama’s campaigns since
2000, Gibbs said. He gave $1,000 toward Obama’s run for Congress
against Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Chicago) in 2000; $500 to Obama’s Senate
campaign in 2003 and $10,000 to his Senate campaign in 2004, Gibbs
said.

Gibbs said John Aramanda served in Obama’s Capitol Hill office
from July 20 to Aug. 26, 2005, during which he received an $804
cost-of-living stipend.

This may in fact be the work of Hellary’s smear machine but it doesn’t change the fact that this is bad. Very bad.

The only thing worse than this story is the alternative to Obama. Man, we are in some deep fecal matter here folks.
