If you remember former governors who served time, one governor, John Rowland of Ct., should come to mind. He spent ten months in jail and several under house arrest for graft. Rowland was a Republican. They are held to a different standard than Democrats when it comes to crime, or anything else.
Here is my offering. It is a sampling of a letter in the legal process by Ct. officials to reversed the contract awarded to the bid riggers after Rowland's idictment:
Attorney General, Richard Blumenthal
June 5, 2006
Honorable James T. Fleming
Commissioner Department of Public Works
165 Capitol Avenue
Hartford, CT 06106
Dear Commissioner Fleming:
The Tunxis Management Co. (“Tunxis”) and William A. Tomasso, (Read Rezko) former president of Tunxis, recently pled guilty to federal charges related to the corrupt relationship between William A. Tomasso, and Peter N. Ellef and Lawrence E. Alibozek, chief of staff and deputy chief of staff to former Governor John G. Rowland, that resulted in the selection of Tunxis for state property management contracts…
1The Plea Agreement executed by Tunxis specifically states that the “Government’s evidence would establish that the corrupt relationship between Tomasso, Ellef, and, to a lesser extent, Alibozek, compromised … the honesty and impartiality of the selection processes relating to other State of Connecticut business transactions such as the selection of a property management company [Tunxis] to perform renovations at Long Lane School.”
2 From June 1, 2006 through January 31, 2008, the end date of the contracts, Tunxis would receive $426,000.00 under the Uncas-on-the-Thames (A state hospital!) contract and $666,000.00 under the 25 Sigourney Street contract, for a total of $1,092,000.00 in state payments. (End)
Former Republican Governor of Connecticut, John Rowland was found guilty of conspiring with top aids to send work to preferred contractors Uncas-on-Thames Hospital Fund – a state hospital!
Sound familiar? A highly placed, cherished Republican politician sends a state contract bone to dirty dog pals of his pals, in this case, the Governor’s staffers picked their favorite builders. All parties were thoroughly investigated and prosecuted.
There is credible evidence to have Federal Prosecutor, and media hound Patrick Fitzgerald, investigate former Illinois State Senator Barack Hussien Obama for steering a similar project to Rezko affiliates whom have plead guilty already. I mean you have Blagojevich by the short ones. Now is the time.
How tough is that Pat? How tough is that, Main Stream Media?
Here is Count #12 of Rezko’s total of 24 counts he was recently found guilty of:
Charge: Rezko caused builder Jacob Kieferbaum to send a letter to Mercy Hospital on Nov. 25, 2003, in furtherance of an illegal scheme.
Background: Rezko and Levine agreed to split a $1 million bribe from Kieferbaum in exchange for Levine, a member of the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board, (Awarder of Illinois state hospital bids.) and Rezko arranging for the board to approve Mercy Hospital's application to build a facility in Crystal Lake.
Verdict: Guilty Mail fraud
So what is so tough about calling in some people to talk about Senator Barack Hussein Obama and his spearheading, as Illinois State Senator, the lowering of the Illinois Health Facilities Board to 9 members from 15 and packing it with people who have already plead guilty to this scam? Blago signed off on it.
Could we please have Federal Prosecutor and Media Hound Patrick Fitzgerald go after Illinois players for two years like he did with, say for instance Scooter Libby, who he knew the whole time was not a leaker of non-top secret documents and at least come up with a process crime? It really is simple. Try this:
1. Get everyone in separate rooms - get statements.
2. Lean on anyone you pick out to prosecute who’s statement is not in line anyone else’s statement – don’t let them use their notes from any meetings as a reference.
3. Get a second statement and prosecute if there is a difference.
Start with Blagojevich then work your way through the crowd in an upward path through all the parties.
Come on you’ve done it before.
