Obama's Connections With 'Corrupt' Blagojevich

UPDATE: Obama's senior adviser David Axelrod said on Fox News: "I know he's talked to the governor and there are a whole range of names many of which have surfaced, and I think he has a fondness for a lot of them." source

Illinois Governor Blagojevich worked two years in State's Attorney Richard M. Daley's office and Daley was the Chairman of Blagojevich's campaign for governor. Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, no stranger to corruption himself, recently dug up Mieg's Field in Chicago without any authorization and left hundreds of private aircraft stranded. Four of his top aides were convicted in the city’s largest patronage scandal. source source

Being from Chicago, it is of course likely that Obama will have ties with Daley. His brother Bill Daley served as Secretary of Commerce for Clinton and ran Al Gore’s 2000 campaign. Bill went on to serve in Obama's campaign. Richard Daley himself strongly endorsed Obama in the early primaries. The two had hour-long meetings for months. In return, Obama endorsed Mayor Daley’s re-election bid.

Obama also endorsed Chicago thug Dorothy Tillman, who is known for pulling a pistol from her purse and brandishing it around at a city council meeting. Lakefront Outlook exposed flagrant cronyism and possible tax-law violations that centered on Tillman. source source

Chicago appointee for Obama's White House staff, Michael Strautmanis, will serve as Jarrett's chief of staff and assistant to the president. Strautmanis served as Legislative Director and Counsel to then Rep. Rod Blagojevich, aiding Governor Blagojevich in his successful 2002 Illinois gubernatorial campaign. source

Becky Carroll was on Obama's Exploratory Committee serving is 'Director of Women for Obama'. She was also deputy chief of staff to Gov. Blagojevich; started working for Blagojevich in early 2003, and Assistant communications director of the Mayor Daley's 1995 re-election campaign. source

Obama's Deputy Policy Director Danielle Gray worked at the same legal firm, "Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom", as Tina Chen, whom the aformentioned Michael Strautmanis served as Senate counsel for. source
