How Tony Rezko is a 'bipartisan' problem...

Here's a nice, detailed article (from The Chicago Tribune's John Kass) concerning how slumlord and now convicted felon Tony Rezko is pretty tied up to the GOP, perhaps more so than with Obama. We'll see if this gets any play, but the article has useful talking points for political debates amongst friends and family.

My favorite bit - "While campaigning in Illinois, (Mitt) Romney made it clear that he'd get rid of U.S. Atty. Patrick Fitzgerald, who authorized the prosecution of Rezko." Another earlier column on just that can be found here. Fitzgerald was of course also the 'left-wing hatchet man' who prosecuted Scooter Libby for obstruction of justice and perjury in relation to the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame. Obama isn't super-duper innocent in regards to Rezko (nothing illegal, just somewhat mediocre judgment), but it looks like the GOP is swimming in much deeper waters.
