FBI Questioning Rezko-Obama Property Deal

This story is being put out today as if it were fresh, but … it’s not quite. Kenneth J. Conner is stating that the FBI questioned him regarding appraisals of the Obama – Rezko properties, there’s a new story in the Washington Times. There are a¬†few things to consider here before you go over the top with this breaking story:

So this could be opportunistic timing that turns out to be nada, or maybe we will see some arrests or new indictments. Was there something fishy about the Obama land deal? My nose leads me to believe that something smells in the state of Illinois, but time will tell this tale.

Obama Friend’s Office Raided by FBI

A lobbyist friend of Senator Barack Obama’s office was raided by the FBI, they raided Larry Walsh’s office, and that of his Chief of Staff, Matt Ryan. Story at Washington Times:

Mr. Walsh, who served in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2005, was endorsed by Mr. Obama in his county executive election bid. With the support of some of Mr. Obama’s U.S. Senate volunteers, he easily defeated incumbent Republican Joseph Mikan.

Will County auditor Steve Weber confirmed that his office had been asked by the FBI to assist in an investigation, but he did not elaborate on the specifics.

Apparently Walsh is not just an Obama supporter, but also a poker buddy.
