Doctor testifies in wide-ranging fraud scheme in Illinois

AP/St. Louis Post-Dispatch, March 14, 2008
Dr. Imad Almanaseer, a member of a powerful state healthcare planning board told political fundraiser Antoin "Tony" Rezko's fraud trial that he switched his vote on an $81 million hospital construction project partly because he felt embarrassed and humiliated by another panel member. Rezko, a key fundraiser for Sen. Barack Obama and Gov. Rod Blagojevich, and millionaire attorney Stuart Levine are accused of scheming to split a $1 million kickback for ramming the $81 million hospital project through the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board.
