Battling for the Democratic Nomination, Barak Obama is facing questions about his affiliation with political fundraiser Rezko, who remains on trial in Chicago (see here). Gavel to gavel coverage of the trial can be seen at the Chicago Tribune here. The SunTimes talks about an amount of $250,000 (see here) with respect to fundraising for Obama, an amount that is a far cry from amounts initially mentioned (see here). For background on Rezko's trial, see here. Instapundit (here) has a link to a fascinating ABC clip by Obama speaking about his "former pastor" and Rezko. It is interesting to see what happens when the political scene and the judicial system meet.
