Judge freezes Rezko money

| | Comments (4) | TrackBacks (0)

A federal judge has frozen about $105,000 of Tony Rezko's money, saying it will more than likely end up going to the government.
The money is a portion of the funds put up with the court to secure the political fund-raiser's bond earlier this year.
Rather than return it now that Rezko is in jail awaiting sentencing, U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve froze it, agreeing with prosecutors that the money is traceable to proceeds from the sale of Rezko-controlled property.
Rezko is to be sentenced Oct. 28.
Rezko, who served as a top adviser to Gov. Blagojevich and fund-raiser to Blagojevich and Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama, has broken his silence and began talking with prosecutors in recent weeks.

Tony,
Tell them everything dude, because all of your old " friends " have sold you out and written you off long ago.
Do it for your family.

Obama has known Rezko since 1990. Rezko was not *just* a fundraiser for Barack Obama, but who really wants facts anymore. C'mon Sun-Times, do your job!

How is Rita able to keep up with all the bills on their Wilmette mansion???The gas, electric,phone, land-scaping, maintenance and maid service not to mention property taxes and morgage, $105,000 would have probably gotten her a months worth of bills.
