So, who’s the biggest political crook in Chicago?
I nominate Tony Rezko until the U.S. Attorney’s Office gets around to indicting one of his patrons.
The ever protective of Barack Obama Chicago print and electronic media have apparently ignored a Cook County Circuit Court suit concerning Rita Rezko and her sale of a 10-foot strip of her lot to Senator Barack and Michelle Obama.
They didn’t manage to find the court case, which was filed Thursday at 10:03 AM, and write an article in time for Sunday’s editions.
Wouldn’t want to muddy those fawning Chicago newspaper Obama endorsements, would we?
I’ll give the Chicago Tribune some credit. Google says a story was posted to the Tribune web site about 6 AM Sunday morning.

Brave New World, here we come.

My story went up just before midnight Saturday night six hours before the missing Tribune story.

“If the FBI were to ask me about such I would tell them the truth. “
