It’s October, Time to Unleash Some Surprises

September 29, 2008

Could this be the first? From the Chicago Tribune

Antoin “Tony” Rezko, a convicted influence peddler who was once one of Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s most trusted confidants, has met with federal prosecutors and is considering cooperating in the corruption probe of the governor’s administration, sources told the Tribune.

Rezko’s possible change of heart—after years of steadfast refusal—has sent ripples through a tight circle of prominent defense attorneys who represent dozens of potential witnesses and targets in the wide-ranging probe.

His cooperation would give prosecutors investigating the governor and his wife access to someone they have described as an ultimate political insider at the center of a pervasive pay-to-play scheme.

Getting Rezko in the picture again could swing some public opinion against Obama.  Seven houses that were paid for honestly is less questionable than one paid for with bribe money.
