I have discussed this before but it seems hot again with the Rezko trial about to begin. Keep in mind that Rezko and Obama have been buddies for twenty years. Then check out the Obama quote I found here. It has lots of goodies on Obama.
While McKinney considered Obama as a "pretty clean legislator" not unduly influenced by lobbyists, the campaign's handling of the Rezko matter makes him take a second glance. Identifying and returning or donating all the contributions associated with Rezko has proved a lengthy process, and when questioned by reporters in January, the campaign pointed to Obama's on-the-record statements that he didn't recall specific conversations with Rezko and was "not clear" how Rezko became involved in the purchase of the property.Let me see. He is not clear about his dealings with a guy who had been his buddy for 20 years. Sure, I believe that. It could even be true.
