Hey Patrick Fitzgerald, It’s a $400K Bribe Paid to the President…Can You Explain?

American Thinker 29 February 2012 4 Comments

On February 27, a Chicagoland website, Illinois PayToPlay, cited the star witness in the Operation Gambit trials of the early ’90s, Robert Cooley, as a primary source for the information from Daniel Frawley claiming he gave $400,000 in cash to Tony Rezko, who then passed it on to Barack Obama.

In case you missed Cooley’s story, James Peterson, writing for Andrew Breitbart’s Big Journalism, noted that “[i]n the mid-1980’s, Chicago Outfit Lawyer Robert Cooley voluntarily went undercover for the FBI as part of an investigation called Operation Gambat. Cooley wore a wire on, among others, [Alderman Ed] Burke’s good friend and made-man, Alderman Fred Roti. The Chief Judge of Cook County’s Chancery Court and an Assistant Senate Majority Leader of the Illinois State Senate were also targeted. Cooley’s work eventually led to the only judge in U.S. history being convicted of fixing a murder trial.”

    Should we all have eye examinations? Is it just me or does Tony Rezko really look more and more like Susan McDougal every day?

  • Bessie said:

    Beavers neglected to pay taxes on income, which would have been better off negotiated with the IRS than played out in federal court..

  • CA said:

    Have you considered that Frawley has a history of saying and doing anything to have his sentence reduced or get money and is actively seeking national media attention? He is obviously desperate.

    Frawley hired a hitman to assassinate his cousin’s husband (who testified against him before the Grand Jury in Frawley’s $4.5 million bank fraud case), owes over a half a million in taxes, and filed a “whistleblower” suit against his cousins AFTER they wouldn’t pay $5 million in blackmail money to Frawley and his sister? He’s revolting.

    The scumbag deserves 35+ years in jail.
