I’m a firm believer in preventing negative waves during a campaign. You just never know what the press is going to do with the information no matter how well you handle it. Barack Obama supporter Tony Rezko has been named in a corruption and fraud case. Obama is not accused of doing anything wrong. As a matter of fact he is not named in the indictment. More information about the federal indictment here.
I don’t think that this will be a big deal for Obama but like everything he will need to manage this very carefully.
