|Obama mansion in 2008|
This is a subject that the mainstream media for the most part wouldn't report four years ago.
From the Chicago Tribune:
The combative and blunt-speaking John Sununu woke up Illinois' GOP delegation on the final day of the Republican National Convention by tossing some major broadsides at President Barack Obama, even suggesting convicted influence-peddler Antoin "Tony" Rezko could help the Democrat purchase a new home after a Nov. 6 defeat.Technorati tags: Illinois Democrats Obama politics Barack Obama Chicago Tony Rezko corruption legalcronyism Rezkograft gop Mitt Romney Republican sununu elections rnc
A former New Hampshire governor and White House chief of staff to President George H.W. Bush, Sununu spent a lengthy 20 minutes Thursday speaking as a surrogate for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Sununu used the time to blast Obama as "inept" and "incompetent."
"Are there folks here from Chicago?" Sununu asked the delegation. "You ought to go into the real estate business because there's a guy who's got a lot of friends who are coming, that's coming back to look for a house next January. Maybe Tony Rezko can help him again."
