The $81 Million Whisper

“A millionaire attorney and admitted fixer publicly whispered in the ear of a state planning board member who then changed a vote and approved an $81 million hospital construction project, a political fundraiser’s fraud trial was told Tuesday,” NBC5’s Phil Rogers reports.

The board member was Dr. Imad Almanaseer, described recently by the Tribune as “a real estate and fast-food impresario and former member of LARC Realty, a [Tony] Rezko business.”

Almanaseer is among those whose campaign donations Barack Obama has returned; he had contributed $3,000.
