Sun-Times: Obama Referenced in Ill. Developer Corruption Case

Source tells Chicago paper that the unnamed “political candidate” in the federal case against developer and longtime political fundraiser Tony Rezko refers to Obama.


Court documents say $10,000 allegedly obtained through a scam by Rezko and business associate was donated to Obama’s 2004 Ill. Senate bid.


Obama isn’t accused of wrongdoing, no evidence he knew contributions came from schemes.


Obama camp: Says there’s no evidence it’s him, not worried it’s going to affect his campaign.
