Rezko witness: 'I'll bring the governor."

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Tony Rezko trial witness Stuart Levine jokes on tape that in an arranged meeting set up to impress an investor, he'll bring all the necessary people.
Besides himself and a connected lawyer, Levine quipped: "Why don't I bring the governor?"
We know this because the words were captured on an FBI wiretap and played in court today.
Levine was then asked to explain. Was he serious?
Appearing to try to keep a smile off his face, Levine responded: "This was strictly jokes."
Rezko looked on. He did not appear amused.
