The Chicago Sun-Times reports this morning that Tony Rezko–Barack Obama fixer and Hillary Clinton photo pal–was arrested this morning on a bond violation.

Obama says he has nothing more to say. Via The Swamp:

The morning after winning South Carolina’s primary, Sen. Barack Obama said he has shared everything that is to be known about his relationship with indicted Chicago developer Tony Rezko.

Appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” the Illinois Democrat and presidential hopeful also answered a series of questions about racial campaigning and his leading challenger, Sen. Hillary Clinton.

Obama was asked specifically about a paragraph in an endorsement in Sunday’s editions of the Chicago Tribune that calls on him to “divulge all there is to know about that relationship.”

The editorial continues: “Until you do, the journalistic scrubbing and opposition research will intensify. You should have recognized Rezko as a political seducer of young talent. But given that you’ve not been accused of any crime or ethical breach, your Rezko history is not a deal-breaker.”

Obama responded by saying there is nothing more to say.

It’s not the end of the story.
