Rezko trial: Who's on the phone with Tony?

| | Comments (3) | TrackBacks (0)

Tony Rezko had frequent -- but brief -- conversations with a number of top Illinois players and political insiders between 2003 and 2004.


FBI Agent Charles Willenborg said he examined Tony Rezko's phone records and compared them with various individuals mentioned previously in the trial.

It is an attempt by the government to establish relationships and support previous timeline evidence. Many of the calls were less than one minute and even more took fewer than five minutes, Willenborg said.
Charts detailing the number and length of calls will be released later.

Willenborg traced calls between Rezko and the following individuals:
Chris Kelly (fellow governor fund-raiser)
Stuart Levine (sat on two boards)
William Cellini (GOP power broker who did deals with Teachers' Retirement System
Thomas Beck (Chairman of the health planning board)
Edmund Kelly (Beck's cousin who wanted state deal)
Alonzo Monk (Gov. Blagojevich aide)

I know this is old news- but I found it looking for the definition of the term "wild deed"
-according to this site- which is the only definition I could find

http://www.bankapedia.com/mortgage-encyclopedia/residential-mortgage-terms/465-wild-deed

my question is who owned the property if it belonged to neither obama or rezco?

Mark, do you have any information on this besides your accusation? Scanned documents? Link to a legitmate source versus just a comment on an article?

PROOF POSITIVE THAT REZKO AND OBAMA ARE PARTNERS

Examine the Cook County land records:

The deed for the house that the Obama’s purchased for $300k less than the asking price is from Frederic Wondisford and his wife, Sally Radovic, to the Obama’s Northern Trust Company Land Trust #10209 (established as such for “confidentiality”) is dated 15 June 2005 and is recorded 21 June 2005 as Document #0517233010. Declared value is $1,650,000.00.

The deed for the vacant lot is from Wondisford/Radovic to Rita M. Rezko. This deed is dated 15 June 2005 and recorded a day earlier, on 20 June 2005 as Document #0517133004. Declared value is $625,000.00.

Examination of the Cook County records very clearly indicates that Rita M. Rezko conveyed the entire lot to Obama’s Northern Trust Company Land Trust #10209 on 11 January 2006 and recorded 16 February 2006 as Document #0604733162. Declared value is $104,500.00.

VERY IMPORTANTLY, thorough and careful examination of all Cook County land records fails to locate a deed back to Rita M. Rezko from the Obama’s Northern Trust Company Land Trust #10209.

There is a “wild’ deed indicated from Rita M. Rezko to “5050 S. Greenwood LLC”. This is an Illinois limited liability corporation with the same address as Rezmar Corporation that is registered to the indicted Tony Rezko. (This deed is considered “wild” because it is not supported by any ownership deed from the Obama’s Land Trust.)

Furthermore, Tony Rezko’s registered corporation, 5050 S. Greenwood LLC, then pledges the entire vacant lot in favor of a mortgage THAT IS STILL OPEN with Fifth Third Bank for the amount of $375,000.00. This is Document #0703357023 recorded 2 February 2007.

THUS, THE ENTIRE VACANT LOT IS TITLED TO SEN. BARACK AND MICHELLE OBAMA (IN THEIR LAND TRUST FOR CONFIDENTIALITY) AND ALLOWED BY SENATOR BARACK AND MICHELLE OBAMA TO BE PLEDGED BY A TONY REZKO CORPORATION TO SECURE A LOAN.

This is contrary to what has been stated by Senator Obama; contrary to what has been stated by Senator Obama’s campaign staff: and contrary to what has been reported.

It must be noted that a seemingly intelligent Harvard educated attorney does not make such unknowing errors as stated above. The above is obvious intent not “oversight”.
