Obama Pal Rezko Gets 10 1/2 Years in Prison

What a shame. You know, Tony, sometimes you can shave off some time by ratting out your friends. Just saying.

The Sun-Times hilariously calls Rezko and “onetime friend” of Obama. Yeah, just like some of  his other buddies now doing federal time.

A federal judge sentenced Tony Rezko to 10 1/2 years in prison Tuesday, describing his actions under Rod Blagojevich’s tenure as “selfish and corrupt.”

Rezko, 56, has already served about 44 months. His daughter burst into tears at hearing the sentence.

U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve said she found it offensive that Rezko put at risk the Teachers’ Retirement System by scheming for kickbacks with a board member in 2004.

“You put their retirements at risk for your own greed and your own thirst for power,” St. Eve said.

Don’t expect anyone in the media to even mention Rezko at any Obama press conferences. On the upside, at least they mentioned Obama this time.
