Rezko Watch has "everything"

An Anon commenter put me on to Rezko Watch, a blog which promises it "will follow the adventures -- and misadventures -- of indicted Chicago political friendster-fundraiser Antoin "Tony" Rezko and his relationship with Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.)."

I took a look around Rezko Watch.

Here's just a little of what I just saw at 7 pm Eastern on Apr. 2 - -

Courtroom Reports

• Complete Rezko Index, Chicago Tribune; "Gavel-to-Gavel Trial Coverage: Week 2 and Week 1.

• Complete Rezko Index, Chicago Sun-Times and Natasha Korecki's Eye on Rezko Blog.


• Rob Olmstead, Rezko trial witness tells of pressure for $750,000 payoff, Daily Herald, April 1, 2008.

• Bob Secter and Jeff Coen, Levine details attempts to get kickbacks. Witness says he tried, failed to get kickback, Chicago Tribune, April 1, 2008.

• Gavel-to-Gavel: Schemer feared getting caught, witness says, Chicago Tribune, April 2, 2008.

• Natasha Korecki, On tape: No way around clout. Levine says he met to divvy spoils, Chicago Sun-Times, April 2, 2008.

• Natasha Korecki, Secret tape reveals extortion attempt on 'Million Dollar Baby' producer, Chicago Sun-Times, April 2, 2008.

• Real estate fund owner quoted as suspecting Rezko, April 2, 2008.

Folks, there’s so much at Rezko Watch - and it all seems to be well organized and linked - that I thought of a six year old boy’s reaction a few years back when I asked him at Christmas dinner what Santa had brought him that morning.

He threw his arms out and said: “Everything!”

Rezko Watch looks like it has “everything” for all of us who want to know more about Sen. Obama’s close friend Tony Rezko and the political organization and culture that’s nurtured the CHANGE candidate.

Thank you, Anon Commenter.

I hope those of you who go to Rezko Watch will let me know what you think.
