Rezko trial: Revisiting the Standard Club

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Joseph Duffy picks away at Stuart Levine's memory.
Levine claims he met with Tony Rezko at the Standard Club in April of 2004 to talk about splitting up kickbacks. There's evidence that the two had dinner that night. But jurors must rely only on Levine's word
(and what he told Rezko on tape) to believe the two talked about kickbacks.


Now, Levine is talking about his allegations that he often met with Rezko at his office because Rezko allegedly told him he didn't like to do business on the phone.
Levine said he didn't have appointments to meet Rezko, so he just dropped in.
"Mr. Rezko never said to me : “I’m very busy and I don’t have time for you,” Levine said.
So Levine told Duffy he would drive from his offices in Deerfield and drive to Chicago to Rezko's office on Elston Avenue, without an appointment on the chance that Rezko would have time to talk to him.
