Tony Rezko arrested on bond violation

Antoin “Tony” Rezko, a key fundraiser for Gov. Blagojevich and other Illinois politicians, was arrested early today by federal agents after prosecutors alleged he had violated terms of the bond in his fraud case.

“Tony Rezko was arrested without incident at his home in Wilmette,” FBI spokesman Tom Simon said. “It was pursuant to a warrant issued following a government motion to revoke his bond.”

Rezko appeared briefly this morning before U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve, who is to preside over his fraud trial next month. Another hearing will be held at 12:30 p.m. today; Rezko remains in federal custody.

Rezko has pleaded not guilty to charges that he joined with another major political fundraiser, businessman-attorney Stuart Levine, to shake down money management companies wanting to invest state pension funds.

Rezko is charged in a separate case with defrauding the General Electric Capital Corp. out of $10 million.

He was released on bond last year after $1.5 million in properties were posted.

Rezko has recently become an issue in the presidental campaign, with Sen. Barack Obama under fire over his long relationship with Rezko.
This is the "slumlord" Clinton reffered to in the last debate...

This just might be Obama's Abramoff...
