    EXCERPT

    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.

    If Obama was aware of this, he is not worthy of the office of POTUS. If Obama wasn't aware of this, he is not worthy of the office of POTUS.

    Obama has been dealing with the backlash of Rezko for awhile now. If you read the article it even says that he has been dumping donations from anyone connected with Rezko as well as Rezko himself. For those donations that have not been dumped, (given to charity), the people involved, (Abboud and Carriglio), have not been indicted in any crime or wrongdoing. What you wnat him to dump all the momey from everyone who ever made contact with Rezko? It appears Obama is being pretty forthcoming about his campaign contriutions. He cannot help who donates to his campaign, but he can help what is done with the money, and giving it to charity is a good as anything else. Wouldn't we all cringe to know who has donated to the majority of candidates out there. Politics is a dirty game. By now we shouldn't be surprised when shady types throw money into the game.

    And we shouldn't be surprised when politicians catch the money and run with it...

    until caught.

    Then it's time to scramble.
