    ...from WashPost at the end of January.  

    Obama's campaign aides said the candidate has already returned $85,000 in Rezko-related campaign contributions, dating back to his U.S. Senate bid.

    Recent reviews by ABC News and by the Los Angeles Times found additional contributions from Rezko's relatives and from consultants and lawyers who did work for him. The L.A. Times estimated Rezko affiliates provided Obama more than $200,000 in donations since 1995.

    Obama spokesman Bill Burton said he believes those reviews "cast too wide a net," capturing contributions from people who had only glancing contact with Rezko, and who were already strong supporters of Obama in their own right.

    That said, Burton said the campaign was "constantly reviewing our contributions" and anticipated that "a more fulsome look at them should be done by the time [the Clintons] release the additional library records they've said they would -- by the end of the month."

    "It's not just enough to change the players. We've gotta change the game." ~ Obama

      not sure if it was meant to be amusing or merely factual.

      Never, never brave me, nor my fury tempt:
        Downy wings, but wroth they beat;
      Tempest even in reason's seat.
