Culture of Corruption - Obama Style

This isn't getting the attention it deserves, probably because Obama's primary opponent has her own problems that she'd rather were not brought up in retaliaion.

Barack Obama's association with gangster Tony Rezko was troublesome before Obama was caught lying about it.

During his 12 years in politics, Sen. Barack Obama has received nearly three times more campaign cash from indicted businessman Tony Rezko and his associates than he has publicly acknowledged, the Chicago Sun-Times has found.

Obama has collected at least $168,308 from Rezko and his circle. Obama also has taken in an unknown amount of money from people who attended fund-raising events hosted by Rezko since the mid-1990s.

And Obama still hasn't adequately explained how he came to be so cozily aqcuainted with such a sleazebag.
