Obama Giving Tainted Money to Charity

Sen Barack Obama (D-IL) will give up campaign donations he recieved through a shady donor. From the Associated Press:
"The donations came from two Chicago businessmen who worked with indicted entrepreneur Antoin 'Tony' Rezko, the one-time Obama friend. Rezko has pleaded not guilty to charges that he shook down investment firms that wanted to do business with the state of Illinois. Obama last year gave charities $11,500 to clear his campaign fund of donations that had come directly from Rezko."

The Democratic Presidential hopeful will give the $16,500 to charity. (AP)
