Campaign Outsider’s Rove-ing Reporter

(First in a series of posts foreshadowing former House of Bush consigliere and current GOP gunsel Karl Rove’s shady activities.)

This New York Times report is mother’s milk to Karl Rove and his Super PAC American Crossroads (not to mention his 501(c)4 super-soaker Crossroads GPS):

Former Obama Fund-Raiser Gets Over 10 Years in Fraud and Bribery Case

CHICAGO — More than three years after his conviction on fraud and bribery charges, Antoin Rezko, a former real estate mogul and a once-powerful fund-raiser with ties to President Obama’s early political career, was sentenced on Tuesday to 10 and a half years in prison.

“Enough is enough,” Judge Amy J. St. Eve of Federal District Court said before she passed sentence. “The corruption in the Illinois state government has to stop.”

Which should jump-start a Crossroads attack ad on Obama in just about . . . tomorrow.

    I’m not sure that Crossroads would bother. Questions about Obama’s past connections in Chicago seem a little off message if you want to attack a sitting president. It would be like attacking Bush in 2004 for the Texas Rangers stadium deal.

    It’s also Obama’s association. He gets to live with it.

    I’m sure that if Brown had an association like that, Warren would be making a stink like cheap perfume.
