Via The Real Barack Obama, Antoin “Tony” Rezko has apparently expressed interest in talking to prosecutors again:
On Thursday morning, U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve canceled deadlines by which lawyers were to submit filings on the sentencing of the Wilmette businessman.
Rezko was to be sentenced Jan. 6 — a rushed date he recently requested as he seeks to be freed from solitary confinement.
The possibility of another change comes two days after Gov. Blagojevich was charged in shakedown schemes and the feds revealed they had secret recordings of the governor.
Now that he knows other members of the “combine” have been spilling their guts, Rezko might be feeling a little more talkative himself. Awhile back he was having “intense” conversations with investigators, but then he clammed up after his protege, Barack Obama, became the “president elect.”
From the LA Times:
Now, why would a judge extend the period before sentencing when the convicted prisoner expressed a desire to get on with prison? Without a new briefs deadline, the expedited Jan. 6 sentencing could now be pushed back further.
Because Rezko, in the hopes of reducing his sentence, is singing in his cell about Blagojevich and maybe others. He’s not done with his song repertoire and the feds haven’t fully checked out his information to determine how grateful to be in sentence-seeking.
A footnote at the bottom of one page in the 76-page …
… Blagojevich complaint confirms Rezko is cooperating with the FBI, news that could cause an increase in the pre-holiday consumption of Mylanta by other Chicago pols.
This could get interesting…stay tuned.
