David Freddoso has written a book, “The Case Against Barack Obama.”
In a chapter titled “Pinstripe Patronage: Obama takes care of his
friends”, Freddoso reveals the close ties between Obama and
convicted criminal Tony Rezko. Obama has lied about the level of
associations with Rezko and has denied doing favors for him. Here
are some exerpts from “The Case Against Barack Obama”:

“In June, Chicago Sun Times reporter Tim Novak reported that
Obama “wrote letters to city and state officials supporting his political patron Tony Rezko’s successful bid to get more than
$14 million from taxpayers to build apartments for senior citizens.”
The project, Cottage View Terrace, includes ninety-seven apartments.
It is a few blocks outside of Obama’s state Senate district.

The deal for which Obama help Rezko get this money also included
Obama’s old law firm boss, Allison davis. He is also a major Obama
fundraiser and a developer who has built or renovated 1,500
apartment units in Chicago. From the $14.6 million in state funds
that Obama requested, the two men would already be expected to
profit through their housing business. But Davis and Rezko were also
to collect $855,000 of it in “developers fees.””

“Developers need friends in government. In state senator Obama, the
developers had a friend. In Springfield, he was a reliable backer and
at times even a champion of the subsidy system that made Rezko and
other Chicago slum developers wealthy building low income housing.”
