Tribune: Tony Rezko arrested

Not the greatest timing for Obama, but this is a blip compared with today's endorsements from the Kennedys.

Via The Page:

Rezko, who is scheduled to stand trial on corruption charges in less than a month, was in the courtroom of U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve, his trial judge, at 8:35 a.m. He could be seen at a defense table going over papers with his lawyer, Joseph Duffy. A jury is to be selected at the Dirksen U.S. Courthouse to hear his case beginning Feb. 25. ...

Rezko also has become an issue in the presidential campaign because of his long association with Democratic candidate U.S. Sen. Barack Obama. More than $80,000 in campaign contributions linked to Rezko and given to Obama have now been donated to charity.

Last week an undated photo appeared of Rezko standing between Obama's leading opponent for the Democratic nomination, U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, and former President Bill Clinton. Hillary Clinton denied knowing Rezko and said she did not recall the photo being taken.
