Rezko gave Gutierrez a deal on town house :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: The Watchdogs

Rezko gave Gutierrez a deal on town house :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: The Watchdogs

The Sun-Times reported in 2006 that Gutierrez got the cheapest price on any of the 17 riverfront town houses in the Rezko development. Others paid $495,000 and $660,000, in some cases for smaller town homes. The congressman sold his unit in March 2006 for $610,000 -- 40 percent more than his purchase price.

Gutierrez was accompanied to the 2008 FBI interview by defense lawyer Michael Deutsch of the People's Law Office.

"I'm not going to go into what was discussed or why," said Deutsch, who said his office has done work with the Puerto Rican community and that Gutierrez has been a "good supporter" of that effort.

It's not clear why the FBI interviewed Gutierrez. The U.S. attorney's office would not comment.

Accompanied by a Lawyer from the People's Law Office....that's precious.
