Barack Obama & Chicago mob: next on Patrick Fitzgerald’s agenda?
Michael Sneed dropped a juicy hint in yesterday’s Chicago Sun Times. To wit:
Sneed hears rumbles political fund-raiser/fixer Tony Rezko, who is now singing sweetly to the feds from his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, has been talking about his “dealings” with a Chicago bank, which has political connections.
A Chicago bank with “political connections”? Hillbuzz makes the case that it’s Broadway Bank, formerly run by youngster Illinois State Treasurer and Obama banker Alexi Giannoulias who . . .
1. financed Chicago mobster Michael “Jaws” Giorango;
2. reportedly served as banker for Obama’s 2004 Illinois Senate campaign and made a subprime loan in 1996 to Barack Obama for the purchase of a Chicago townhouse; and
3. surprisingly, bumped Rep. Charlie Rangel out of the Dem Convention in July.
With such a cast of characters — including slumlord and key Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett — surrounding the current poll leader for the U.S. presidency, the White House, after four years, might just look like the dilapidated, federally subsidized Chicago tenements in this Boston Globe expose:
Yep, Barack Obama is just the guy to solve the nation’s mortgage crisis. And the major media are transfixed with Sarah Palin’s failure to keep her husband on a tighter leash!
