Notably, Rezko's company claimed that it lacked the funds to heat one of its 11 buildings in Obama's state Senate district from December 1996 to February 1997. But Rezko still managed to write a $1,000 check to Obama's campaign fund on Jan. 14. That month, his tenants shivered as 19 inches of snow fell on northern Illinois.So Obama enjoyed a thousand dollar contribution from slumlord Tony Rezko, while tenants in Rezko's slums shivered in the cold.
I guess in light of the recent news that Obama's own "lost" half-brother lives in a shack in Nairobi on less than a buck a month, the above "let them eat cake" elitist mentality displayed by Obama is hardly surprising. If the multimillionaire Barack Hussein Obama (pbuh) is too cheap to pony up for his own brother, do you really expect him to lend a hand to perfect strangers?
