After the Sun-Times reported in today's paper and in yesterday's blog that Barack Obama's campaign sent a court watcher to Tony Rezko's trial...
...she disappeared. The young female Obama campaign staffer who was paying close attention to every potential juror during questioning yesterday -- is not in court today. Last night, Obama spokesman Bill Burton told the Sun-Times the campaign sent someone to monitor Rezko's corruption trial "because there have been so many press inquiries."
Today, several news outlets sent reporters to the trial in search of that Obama representative. None was found.
A campaign spokesman today noted that the staffer wasn't committed to attend the trial every day.
He didn't respond to an email asking if that meant we could expect her to return.
