Meanwhile he appeals and appeals, gets a new trial, and is pardoned in Jan 2013 or more likely Nov 7, 2012.

Just another guy from the neighborhood.

Odumbo won’t pardon him. The Mob turned their back on Rezko, and so he’s free to stiff him, especially as that keeps his name out of it. Odumbo may be a tool, but all signs point to him being still on the side of the Chicago Machine. Getting on the wrong side of that machine didn’t work out so good for the last donk president that tried it.

I’d say that Rezko’s life expectancy is short, indeed. They may have him silent, but he’s still a loose end that could talk. However, if he’s smart, he has some form of life insurance that gets mailed to someone honest if he wakes up dead in prison.

Interesting points. No tears here if Rezko gets whacked. Speak of being thrown under the bus…..

I just hope he talks at some point. I suppose a relative or two accidentally hitting themselves in the head 96 times with a claw hammer in what’s clearly a suicide attempt may make him reluctant, though.

dang perl, you bring up images of the godfather et al with most every post you make. I really like that, since you bring that darkened “black hand” into the light of modern day policy. You sir, are relevant and i applaud you!

I hope he sings like a bird, spilling all the dirty Chicago Land secrets he knows. No one should be surprised if he winds up taking a dirt nap, though.

I hope Toney Boy chirps like a canary. Before he does he’ll probably be demoated to a dirt nap by his best friends. Chicago charity never quits giving.
