The Washington Post dips its beak into the Rezko trial.
“Entering its second month, the Rezko trial is an Illinois politics junkie’s dream, full of inside looks at patronage in a state infamous for the conveniently placed ally and the greased palm,” the paper says.
But when it states that Barack Obama is not part of the case, that’s not exactly right. This is a glimpse of Obama’s “political godfather,” and given what we already knew and what we’ve learned so far, it’s no wonder he’s been so dodgy about his relationship with one of the biggest villains in recent Illinois political history.
