Businessman Sheldon Pekin to take stand next
Pekin will take the stand next this morning in Tony Rezko's trial. He will testify about splitting a "finder's fee" with Stuart Levine and Rezko.
Prosecutors say that money was routed to Rezko through others. Some of that money ended up in Barack Obama's campaign fund though Obama isn't accused of knowing about it.
Whether Obama's name will surface is not known. This moves us into the Teacher's Retirement Systems board portion of the trial.
