HAVE YOU SEEN ME
Convicted felon, friend, neighbor and official fundraiser, Obama 2004 US Senate campaign
AG Eric Holder can’t exactly be trusted on this matter since he neglected to mention his connections with blago (Illinois Gaming Board, Rosemont casino, State Sen barry, Rezko, Christopher Harris), in his 47-page response to the Senate Judiciary Committee questionnaire, which he happened to sign 5 days after blago was arrested.
Birds of a feather…
March 24, 2004 news conference. Blago announced Holder’s role as “special investigator to the Illinois Gaming Board”. Perhaps Holder didn’t think it would count since he didn’t get the job.
Funny how folks know the story of the ever evil impeached Illinois governor’s PERFECTLY LEGAL appointment of Mr Burris to barry’s senate seat (as investigated by Illinois authorities and the Senate Ethics Committee) – but do not question the “judgment” of the attorney general of the Unites States who accepted an appointment from the same evil man.
Nor does anyone question the judgment of the man who campaigned for Blago and appointed fellow campaigner for blago – Rahm Emanuel – as WH Chief of Staff.
Or find it curious that throughout the alleged time period Blago was allegedly doing all these nefarious things – barry was in a political position to call Blago out and yet said nothing.
barry said nothing about blago even as chief of staff elect was trying to wrangle a job for Valerie Jarrett.
And barry say anything aeven s his official presidential campaign chair – Jesse Jackson Jr, aka Senate Candidate #5 – was trying to make his own deal.
There is no better defense for blago than the fact that the president elect of the United States had no qualms in allowing his people to talk with blago. If barry really had such superior judgment and blago really were different than any other Chicago politician – the future president would have made sure none of his people (including him) spoke with blago – especially after blago’s arrest.
For those of you who believed barry’s words back then take another peek. Here he pretends he knew nothing about what was going on with Tony Rezko – the man whose money and money-raising skill got barry to Washington.
When will barry’s ‘I didn’t know’ going to be taken as evidence of incompetence rather than alleged innocence?
And if Tony Rezko wasn’t needed on the stand, then why was/is he really stashed away?
To keep him safe?
Or keep what he knows about barry safe?
