Friends of Obama: Tony Rezko

Claim: $400K from Tony Rezko to then Senator Barack Obama.  Is that legal Patrick Fitzgerald?
Daniel T. Frawley, a former business partner of Antoin “Tony” Rezko, claims he gave Rezko $400,000 that Rezko gave to then U.S. Senator Barack Obama.
This claim comes through Frawley’s emails to, and conversations with, Robert “Bob” Cooley, former Chicago mob lawyer turned government informer and author of the book on Chicago corruption entitled “When Corruption Was King.”
 For those that don't recall, Tony Rezko is a former Chicago politcal fundraiser and, more importantly, one of Obama's most important early fudraisers.  He was a member of Obama's U.S. Senate campaign finance committee.  He also allegedly helped Obama purchase a Chicago home.  On November 23, 2011, Rezko was sentenced to 10 1/2 years in prison for fraud and bribery.
