The Stroger/Levine/Rezko connection


Rezko's former business partner, godson of John Stroger found shot to death
Besides the Las Vegas matter, Jones had been interviewed by federal authorities about a separate, government-related deal highlighted in a Chicago Sun-Times story in Wednesday's editions.
That deal - which involved an annual fee paid to Jones by an investment firm that does business with a state-government pension fund - allowed Jones to be paid hundreds of thousands of dollars annually for a job he did in 2004.
Stephenson said authorities wanted to know if indicted Highland Park businessman Stuart Levine played any role in helping Jones land the deal.
Levine has been indicted along with Wilmette businessman Tony Rezko in a kickback scheme to defraud Illinois taxpayers using fees such as those Jones received.
Jones told the feds Levine played no role in Jones landing the fee, Stephenson said. He added that Jones was not asked about Rezko.
Like Jones, Rezko is close to the Stroger family, and Rezko and Jones have been business partners, records show.

    Well, well, well.. Look what we have here: Rezko/Stroller/Baloneybitch connection.

    Maybe some of the nimrod can lay off of Obama and his connection to Rezko. Urkel and his family certainly need to be investigated. Something smells rotten in Denmark.

    Daddy Stoller has been in politics a long long time, and I am sure this is not only shady connection.

    I couldn't believe Orlando Jones shot himself. Whatever he took to his grave was HUGE.

    ORLANDO JONES WAS MY UNCLE...MY MOTHERS BROTHER. MY AUNT CERELLDA AND MY COUSINS, HIS SONS GARY AND JEPAUL LOVED MY UNCLE DEARLY. I DID TOO. I WAS HIS FAVORITE NEICE OUT OF ALL OF HIS NEICE'S. HE WAS A VERY STRONG MAN. AND WHAT HE DID WITH REZCO HE DID WITH REZCO. IT MAY HAVE BEEN A MISTAKE, MAY HAVE NOT, BUT TONY REZCO WAS AT MY UNCLES FUNERAL. HE SAT THERE WITH A MEAN AGENDA THAT YOU WOULD ONLY SEE ON THE DEVILS FACE.HIM AND HIS WIFE WAS THERE. MY UNCLE ORLANDO JONES WAS A STRONG MAN, AND HE DID KILL HIMSELF SO PUT ALL THE RUMORS TO REST, MY UNCLE COMMITED SUICIDE. YES HE DID. I LOVED HIM WITH A PASSION AND HE WILL ALWAYS COUNTINUE IN AFTER LIFE TO BE AND INTELLEGENT MAN.

    RIP ORLANDO GARY JONES
