Barack Obama tells the Sun-Times today Tony Rezko raised more for him than previously thought
Obama has returned about $150,000 in Rezko-related donations. But today he told the Sun-Times that figure might be higher than previously reported.
While Obama's campaign fund is expected to play a small role in Rezko's corruption trial, it is expected to come up nonetheless. Rezko is accused of getting straw donors to kick money into Obama's 2004 campaign fund. That's when Obama was running for U.S. Senate. The money allegedly came from a kickback scheme. Obama isn't accused of any wrongdoing. The Sun-Times first revealed Obama was the recipient of that money in January.
Here's today's Sun-Times story.
