Obama's Deals and Friends: Cause for Concern

The Chicago Sun Times is running a two part series on Illinois' Senator-in-absentia Barack Obama and Wilmette's Antoin "Tony" Rezko, currently under home confinement. The information is real cause for concern. Part I ran yesterday, Part II today. Part of the problem involves affordable housing, including a lot of seamy information about real life problems that emerge when there's a big profit to be made from idealogy. Seems that Rezko and Obama's interests were intertwined when "affordable housing initiatives" turned into another word for "Slum Lord." The Sun-Times article is likely no suprise to Senator Obama, who earlier provided answers to questions posed by the Sun Times. Whether or not you support Obama's candidacy for President of the United States, you owe yourself a good look at both the articles.

Fellow Wilmette blogger, The Backyard Conservative, has more coverage on Part I and Part II of the series.
