Stuart Levine testified he met in Tony Rezko's office with Rezko and Chris Kelly to talk about how to handle Tom Rosenberg. They got William Cellini on the phone and discussed how to handle the situation, according to Levine.

Rosenberg had threatened to go to authorities when he thought he was being shaken down for a campaign contribution to Gov. Blagojevich.

Levine testified that Rezko stepped up and said "the situation should be dealt with dispassionately, the situation should be disarmed," Levine said. Levine said Rezko told them he believed "Mr. Rosenberg was a dangerous individual ... no one should talk to Mr. Rosenberg about a campaign contributions," Levine said Rezko told them.


Kelly had a different reaction, LEvine alleged.
"He was very aggravated with Mr. Rosenberg being able to get this very large allocation. If it were up to him he would handle it differently," Levine testified.
The the group decided Rosenberg should win a $220 million investment from the state Teacher's Retirement System.
"But that should be the last business Rosenberg gets with the state of Illinois," Rezko allegedly told them.

Question:

I noticed the Rezmar Map and buildings in Obama's District.

If Obama wrote a letter supporting Rezmar housing project just outside of his district...should he have checked to see how the 11 buildings IN his district were doing?

I notice that 8 out of 11 were foreclosed during his time as State Senator. How could he NOT know?
