With the jury still out deliberating corruption charges in Chicago, Tony Rezko is facing arrest in Las Vegas for allegedly failing to pay old gambling debts.
Las Vegas authorities made federal law enforcement in Chicago aware of an impending warrant tied to gambling debts, earlier this week, sources told the Sun-Times.
The Las Vegas Sun reports that Rezko owes $472,275 in gambling debts to Caesars Palace and Bally’s and related processing fees to the Clark County district attorney’s office. Rezko owed a total of more than $800,000, but Bellagio LLC obtained a judgment of default against Rezko in 2007 for not repaying $331,000 in gambling markers, court records show.
It appeared that Rezko's lawyer was in the courthouse this morning, but left without comment.
U.S. Attorney spokesman Randall Samborn would not comment.

Just one more reason for Rezko to make a deal as it get's down to the wire. Passing bad checks is a Federal deal.

Justice will be served. Watch closely Illinois, all of these corrupt individuals will fall like a house of cards. You know who you are!!
