One board member told another to stay the course

Hospital planning board member Annamarie York took the stand this morning. She's among the four board members who voted against a controversial $81 million hospital project at issue in Tony Rezko's trial.
York said she remembers talking with Dr. Imad Almanaseer about opposing that project submitted by Mercy systems because they both disliked the merits of the project. Almanaseer voted "pass" which would have killed the deal. But then Stuart Levine whispered in his ear. York testified today she told him: "Don't change your vote."

But Almanaseer did change his vote and Mercy passed.
