Obama, who has worked as a lawyer and a legislator to improve living conditions for the poor, took campaign donations from Rezko even as Rezko's low-income housing empire was collapsing, leaving many African-American families in buildings riddled with problems -- including squalid living conditions, vacant apartments, lack of heat, squatters and drug dealers.
Did funds from Nadhmi Auchi, one of Britain’s wealthiest men, helped Mr Obama buy his mock Georgian mansion in Chicago?
A company related to Mr Auchi, who has a conviction for corruption in France, registered the loan to Mr Obama's bagman Antoin "Tony" Rezko on May 23 2005. Mr Auchi says the loan, through the Panamanian company Fintrade Services SA, was for $3.5 million.
Three weeks later, Mr Obama bought a house on the city's South Side.
Mr Obama now admits his involvement in this land deal was a “boneheaded mistake”.
The house-and-garden deal raised questions about whether Mr Rezko, a property developer and fast-food restauranteur, made it possible for the Obamas to purchase a mansion they could otherwise not afford.
A prosecution document filed last month alleged that a "political candidate" - identified by the Chicago Sun-Times as Mr Obama - received a $10,000 campaign contribution from what is said to be a $250,000 kickback in the corruption case.
Mr Obama has publicly sought to atone for his closeness to Mr Rezko, paying $150,000 to charity to distance himself from a man accused of political corruption.
Barack Obama is one of the most racist politicians in America today. (He has) locked his granny away and refused to allow her to be seen.
No one could get away with pretending his white grandmother didn't exist except a media witch doctor such as Obama.
Obama's sister had said she was his "adviser" but refused to be photographed. Did she plan to enter the White house with a paper sack over her head?
Madelyn Dunham raised Barry Obama, (used her money to place him in a prestigious Hawaiian school, and) is being hidden away.
All because she is white and Barry Obama is a "black" candidate for president.
Obama's father was Kenyan. How could Mr. Obama not be African-American, how could his ethnic composition be so Arabic?"
The definitive clue to that answer is to look at his name, his father's name, and the names of all his ancestors on his father's side. They are all Arabic.
Researching his roots reveal that on his father's side, he is descended from Arab slave traders.
How does Mr. Obama tell America's black community that while their ancestors were breaking the shackles of slavery, his ancestors were placing those shackles upon their wrists?
