No, this is not from The Onion

Dana Mathewson

Longtime Chicago Democratic fundraiser Tony Rezko has been sentenced to 10 1/2 years in the poky. Oh, darn!

"Antonin “Tony” Rezko, a long-time Political fundraiser for Illinois Democrats, has been sentenced to 10 1/2 years in prison for extorting millions from companies seeking state business or hoping to have favorable regulations written for them by government. The money was sought as donations to politicians such as disgraced former Governor Rod Blagojevich — Rezko was his top fundraiser — and President Barack Obama."

This has also been reported in the Chicago Tribune. "On a side note, John Ruberry notes that it is curious that the Chicago Tribune somehow forgot to mention that Rezko was also a fundraiser for Obama."

Oh, I'm sure it was just an editorial oversight. Newspapers have so much to report these days, you know.
