DID OBAMA DODGE TAXES ON A $400,000 GIFT FROM TONY REZKO?

Last February, a website focused on Chicago corruption reported that a former business partner of Tony Rezko gave Rezko $400K that Rezko gave to then Senator Barack Obama.
The accusation relied on information provided by the star witness in a Chicago corruption case dating back to the early 1990′s:


Daniel T. Frawley, a former business partner of Antoin “Tony” Rezko, claims he gave Rezko $400,000 that Rezko gave to then U.S. Senator Barack Obama. About April 2011, Frawley, along with Daniel Mahru, a former business associate of Rezko dating back to 1989, and a former business partner of current White House Advisor Valerie Jarrett, began conversations with Cooley concerning collaboration on a book about Chicago corruption.
Frawley's claim that the money he gave Rezko went to Obama is alluded to in a December 1, 2010 deposition executed in the context of a legal malpractice complaint filed by Frawley, on July 9, 2010, against his former attorney and long-time friend, George Weaver.
Frawley alleges that Weaver was not representing his best interests when Weaver interrupted a March 2006 phone conversation, supervised by the U.S. Attorney's Office, between Frawley and Rezko who were scheduling a face-to-face meeting.
According to the source, Cooley added that Frawley told him in several emails, during multiple phone conversations, and in a face-to-face meeting in Chicago, that he gave more than $1 million to Rezko "who said that he wanted it for Obama."
Cooley speculated to the source that the indictment of Frawley ten years after the commission of bank fraud was intended "to keep him quiet, to keep him from talking."
Despite his long association with Rezko, Frawley was not called as a prosecution witness in Rezko's 2008 trial.
This article posted on www.illinoispaytoplay.com on February 27, 2012, and was cited in an American Thinker piece on February 29, 2012. But at that time, no mention was made of the possible Obama tax avoidance issue.
After multiple postponements, Frawley is now scheduled to report to serve a one-year and one-day sentence (making him eligible for early release after serving not-more-than 85% of his sentence - in a minimum security camp near where Blago is incarcerated) after the November election.
Frawley's pro bono attorney, Thomas Durkin, has been nominated by President Obama, and championed by the two Illinois US Senators, to become a Federal Judge.
Now that the presidential candidates' tax histories are on the table, isn't it time that a White House correspondent ask a question about Frawley's accusation?

    Daniel Frawley is mentally unstable. He has had demonstrable psychological and behavorial problems since he was a small child.

    ZERO credibility there.

    Millionaires wisely use every loophole available. Why would anyone expect 0bama to be different from his fellow wealthy class?

    We cannot get the guy's college records or birth certificate. You think they can unearth proof of felony tax evasion? Me either, but stranger things have happened.

    It no longer matters what laws Barack 0bama breaks. There is no one willing to hold him accountable.

    We had better be very careful in the future who we allow to be put in the White House, since liberal presidents are now considered above the law.
