Look for our report this weekend detailing who's behind bailing out Tony Rezko from jail last week.
It includes three properties posted by former Iraqi Electricity Minister Aiham Alsammarae, who in 2006 fled from Iraqi prison. Alsammarae's $1.9 million equity in his Oak Brook home and two other properties made up more than one-third of the $8 million in properties postes to ensure Rezko's bond.
Rezko was released from a downtown lockup April 18 after dozens of friends and family members posted nearly 30
properties to secure his release. He was arrested Jan. 28 after failing to disclose an overseas wire transfer.
