Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) released on Sunday a list, which had been previously requested by the Chicago Sun-Times, of charities receiving campaign money linked to Tony Rezko, on trial in a Chicago courtroom on federal corruption charges.

Everything Rezko is the red herring. Now that Wright has come out, Obama is increasingly more transparent. "Something shiny over here! Look!" We have to stick on Wright. Rezko is completely controlled by Obama's camp, it's a slow release of info and used as a polical cover.


Also read Obama's essay from 1988 on his beliefs about what sort of influence the church has on social justice and in politics.
