Various links on the net, but this is a new development in what should be a non-story. Apparently Obama worked at a law firm that did some work with Rezko, some slum lord of some importance for campaign contributions. In fact Obama worked at the firm but didn't do much if any work for this dude. Clinton is trying to make a mountain of a mole hill. Sadly for her, drudgereport.com just posted a pic of her and Bill taking a pic with this dude in the middle. If it's a real pic, this is certainly an oops by whoever in her campaign told her to take the pot shots.

Haha... you know how many people have had their picture taken with Clinton's, Bush, etc... Of course if this is the best Faux/republicans can get on Hillary then that must be why they are so worried if she gets the Dem nod.

Oh for those that don;t know this is the TOP story at faux's "news" website :laugh:

Nice, way to get ahead of the story Fox. It looks like one of those pics where a few hundred people line up to get a shot with the guvnor. Damning evidence I say. I recall a picture of Rummy with Saddam. Clearly this whole Iraq War thing is a ruse.

Rich people, who are thus more likely to be involved in corruption and fraud, will have access to the white house no matter who is in office. This has always been the case. Hillary will be no more or less corrupt than any other scumbag that passes through that office. You people bickering over which crook is less of a crook is laughable.

Let's see. She took a picture with him. Obama bought a piece of land with him and got part of it and a nice discount as kickback.
Obviously Hillary must be the evil one here.

And she had to answer for those, and she did, there was nothing there.
Now it's Obama's turn to answer for his land deal. And this time there is something there.
He bought a piece of land with his political contributor where he got all the discounts the contributor paid full price. Now that is a kickback scheme.

then why make a thread about it...
Ah, the non-story was clinton's assertion about Obama.

The idea that plenty of strangers get pics with them is correct, but it's funny to see mud thrown back at them for grasping at a nonexistent straw to begin with.

Actually, the reason Clinton's assertion about Obama was a "non-story" is because Hillary held back.
She only called Obama on working for Rezko as a lawyer, she did not bring up his involvement with Rezko on a land kickback deal at all, yet.
His working for a slum lord may be questionable, but engaging in such a brazen kickback scheme with one is outright corrupt, and downright stupid.
