Levine: I was drunk with power

| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (0)

Ending the day, Tony Rezko lawyer Joseph Duffy asked if Levine ever said that he felt "drunk with power"
when he was scheming behind the scenes to direct multi-million dollar decisions on two state boards he sat on.

Levine said he doesn't know if he had said that but: “I certainly felt that way.”

For the first time in 11 days on the stand, one could hear impatience in Levine's voice as he answered question after question from Duffy.

Anyone who has a long term relationship with Rezko is going to be suspect. He has tried to incorporate himself with it seems all the local politicians, donating to everyone. I can understand someone meeting him and not knowing what kind of man he is but to carry on a long term friendship, a good person would recogonize Rezko for he is and distance him or herself from this man. Levine is no such person, he stuck to Rezko like glue, making a good witness for the prosecution. What other kind of person could get close to Rezko?
