The Land Deal Explained

The land deal between Tony Rezko and B. Obama for his house in Hyde Park is explained by GOP Mom. It is rather complicated but the bottom line is that Rezko subsidized Obama's purchase of the house and land giving Obama what amounted to at least a $130,000 discount.

There are maps and pictures and lots of details. Read the whole thing if it interests you.

The question is: what did Rezko (or who ever he was fronting for) get in return?

And for amusement you can also read this 4 Nov 2008 piece claiming the FBI was asking questions about the land deal. I sure hope Barry knows some good lawyers. I am so looking forward to his "I am not a crook" speech.

GOP Mom also has a nice bit on where Rezko got the money to buy the lot next to Obama's house.

Yes, every day it becomes clearer why Obama is sticking his neck out with the Eric Holder pick for Att Gen -- nothing like a pitt bull lap dog when the cops are at the door.
