Two For One

Rezko gets to serve his sentences concurrently, meaning he'll be out long before Blago and even though he might be able to shed a lot more light on influence peddling that Blago ever could:
  • Convicted political fundraiser and businessman Antoin “Tony” Rezko will not spend any extra time in federal prison for a business fraud scheme after agreeing not to appeal his conviction in the case — or his conviction in a wider-ranging political corruption case.

    U.S. District Judge James P. Zagel sentenced Rezko Thursday to 7½ years on charges he schemed to get a fraudulent loan to prop up his Papa John’s Pizza franchises in Illinois and Michigan.

    But Zagel agreed to make the sentence concurrent with a 10½-year prison term Rezko received last month for corrupting state boards and state government under former Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
We're guessing he'll do 8 years barring a pardon.

Oh, and he gets to do his sentence outside of Peoria in Pekin, IL. How convenient.

Blago,Rezko, Cellini get pardoned. Republican Ray LaHood was selected by Obama for for Secretary of Transportation. He was close to Cellini. Nobody in the media will touch this. The whole government is corrupt.

If you don't think this was a deal to keep his mouth shut you are retarded. This whole place is corrupt. How can a judge see both cases. What a crock. Put them in the county not in a country club.

He will never talk. This POS goes all the way up to Obama and all the way back down the corruption ladder. All of these greedy bastards should get life. No less.
