Hailed by prosecutors as a "wake-up call," Antoin Rezko was sentenced to 10½ years in prison today for extorting millions of dollars from firms seeking state business or regulatory approval while he was a top fundraiser and adviser to then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

Just a guy in the neighborhood with whom Obama had a few unremarkable real estate dealings. Nothing to see there, move along.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

Anything like the Mexican drug lords receiving Obama guns?

It's the thought that counts, the compassion, they all meant well...

Meant well for themselves alone, but they meant it!
