Now that I've finally seen season three of The Wire, it's simple!
Tony Rezko is Clay Davis's shadow. He and an accomplice used their position on Illinois regulatory boards to shake down other businessmen and embezzle from the teachers' pension.
Obama's role in all this dastardly racketeering doesn't exist yet, though his judgement might be called into question for accepting tens of thousands in campaign contributions over the years from a top George W. Bush fundraiser, presumably a fellow Bush ranger. But then the turnover of Republican political funding into Democratic pockets seems to be about the only point of these little contests.
