Raghuveer Nayak appeal fails, Obama Blagojevich contributor, Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals decision October 20, 2014, Operation Board Games Chicago IL pay to play politics

“Why did the Illinois Senate Health & Human Services Committee, with Obama as chairman, create and push Bill 1332, “Illinois Health Facilities Planning Act,” early in 2003, which reduced the number of members on the Board from 15 to 9, just prior to rigging by Tony Rezko and Rod Blagojevich?”…Citizen Wells

“Why did Patrick Fitzgerald, instead of protecting the citizens of Illinois as he has touted, prosecute Tony Rezko first, a businessman, instead of Rod Blagojevich, the governor of Illinois.”…Citizen Wells

“Why did Patrick Fitzgerald and the US Justice Department wait until December 2008 to arrest Rod Blagojevich?”…Citizen Wells

 

 

The appeal of Chicago, IL Obama Blagojevich crony Raghuveer Nayak has failed.

“We AFFIRM the judgment of the district court.”

From Citizen Wells June 23, 2013.

From the Morris Daily Herald June 21, 2012.

“A longtime friend of U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.who was at the center of a Senate seat scandal that sent ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich to prison was arrested Wednesday in his own federal fraud case, accused of bribing doctors to send patients to his surgical centers.

Raghuveer Nayak, a wealthy businessman and former campaign fundraiser for both politicians, was indicted on charges he secretly paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to physicians from 2000 to 2010 to have patients referred to Rogers Park One Day Surgery Center, Lakeshore Surgery Center and other Chicago-area facilities he owned.

The investigation of his businesses had hung over Nayak’s head for years, and his lawyer, Thomas McQueen, said the charges were not unexpected. “He knew this had never gone away,” McQueen said after the FBI arrested his client at Nayak’s Oak Brook home.

A frowning Nayak appeared Wednesday at the Dirksen U.S. Courthouse in a rumpled shirt and entered a plea of not guilty to the 19 fraud counts against him. U.S. Magistrate Judge Maria Valdez ordered him released on a $10 million bond secured by six properties in Illinois and Indiana after Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher Niewoehner told the court that Nayak has “rather significant assets” and ties to India.

Nayak left the courthouse without commenting.

In making their case against Blagojevich, federal authorities alleged that it was Nayak, a longtime friend of the Jackson family, who offered up to $6 million in campaign money in exchange for Jackson being named a senator. Blagojevich was found guilty on corruption charges last year that included counts involving the attempted sale of the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama after his 2008 election to the presidency.

Nayak was never charged in the Blagojevich case, and he quickly spoke with authorities after Blagojevich’s arrest in a bid for leniency. But he never was used as a witness, either, and investigators continued to look into his businesses.

Jackson testified at Blagojevich’s trial that he had no knowledge of a scheme to buy the Senate seat.

The indictment of Nayak is seen as one of the final offshoots of the sweeping federal investigation known as Operation Board Games, which in addition to Blagojevich led to convictions of fundraiser Antoin “Tony” Rezko, formerAld. Edward Vrdolyak, Republican power broker William Cellini and others. One of the final sentences in cases connected to that probe could be handed down as soon as next week, when political insider turned federal witness Stuart Levine is expected to learn his punishment.
Sources have confirmed that the Board Games investigation is wrapping up. U.S. Atty. Patrick Fitzgerald is leaving office at the end of the month, and one of the lead prosecutors against Blagojevich, Reid Schar, already has left.

Although he raised money for politicians for more than a decade, Nayak mostly worked under the radar until his connections to Blagojevich and Jackson surfaced in 2008 as part of the burgeoning federal investigation into the governor’s office.”

“The indictment unsealed Wednesday alleges as part of the scheme that “physicians deceived their patients by not disclosing that they were being paid for making referrals to Nayak’s facilities,” but Nayak was the only person charged. He allegedly created false contracts to disguise some of the illicit payments, describing them as money for advertising, according to the document.

Prosecutors are seeking $1.8 million in “alleged fraud proceeds” in the case.

In one kickback scheme, prosecutors alleged, Nayak paid one person, identified only as “Individual A,” more than $2 million in checks drawn on his surgery centers’ accounts. In return, “Individual A” gave Nayak cash equaling about 70 percent of the value of the checks, according to the indictment.

In the Blagojevich case, Nayak’s friend Bedi testified that Nayak issued about $2 million in checks to a Bedi-owned company. Bedi testified he provided cash in return and said he knew Nayak was cheating on his taxes by making the payments.

Nayak’s businesses have over the years needed the approval of state regulators and auditors, and Nayak became a big campaign bundler and contributor, donating more than $779,000 to elected officials including Blagojevich, Attorney General Lisa Madigan and Obama from the late 1990s until his name surfaced in the Blagojevich scandal.

The Tribune previously reported that after Nayak first opened several Chicago drugstores in the early 1980s, his businesses faced multiple audits by state and federal authorities. His name also came up repeatedly in one of the largest health care fraud investigations in Illinois history.

That multiyear federal probe resulted in the shuttering of two hospitalsDoctors Hospital and Edgewater Medical Centerand the convictions of seven doctors and administrators. Nayak, who then owned a lab testing company called NR Laboratories as well as an outpatient surgery center, was among numerous people who came under scrutiny, the Tribune had reported.

Some of Nayak’s associates and friends were convicted in the scheme, which included charges that two patients died from unnecessary procedures performed by doctors looking to collect fraudulent public aid checks.”

Raghuveer Nayak indictment.

http://chicagotonight.wttw.com/sites/default/files/Nayak%20Indictment.pdf

From Citizen Wells December 22, 2008.

“MARCH 18, 2008 ARTICLE ON NAYAK, BLAGOJEVICH, REZKO, WEISNER

“Tuesday, March 18, 2008
Move Over Rezko; Weisner-Blagojevich Crony Raghuveer Nayak
Continues to Spend Thousands on Elected Officials…in Iowa?

Aurora Mayor Tom Weisner, boytoy Gerry Galloway and
crony Raghuveer Nayak are viewing a property in downtown
Aurora in the path of a major development back in 2005.
Nayak is spreading his money around. All the way to Iowa.”

“Raghuveer Nayak, the campaign crony who has dumped tens of
thousands of dollars into the campaign pockets of Aurora
Mayor Tom Weisner and Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, seems
to in a race to compete with another star campaign donor
from Illinois, Tony Rezko, to see how many people he can
contribute to and apparently “influence.”

While Rezko’s list includes some power names in Illinois,
including our local political rockstar, U.S. Senator and
Presidential candidate Barack Obama, Nayak seems to be
broadening his geographical reach (and Nayak is a Hillary
Clinton buddy).””

“The Case Against Barack Obama reveals Shomon connection

SHOMON CONNECTIONS TO WEISNER AND AURORA, IL
“Dan Shomon, who’s background is in media, has a lobbying
contract for the City of Aurora (scroll down or click for
our post on how Dan Shomon is fleecing the taxpayers of
Aurora). He got that contract after helping to secure a
political endorsement of Sen. Barack Obama for then-candidate
for Mayor of Aurora, Tom Weisner. That’s after
Obama said he wan’t going to be a “kingmaker” in Aurora.

We think it’s HIGHLY unethical of Dan Shomon or Tom Weisner
to exploit the taxpayers of Aurora for political purpose.
Barack Obama’s credibility is also risked in the process of
Shomon and Weisner’s games at the expense of taxpayers.”

“Like the ill-advised connection to Obama in Aurora, thanks
to Dan Shomon, Obama is mentioned in the same discusion with
all these problems with Giannoulias. Not good for a
political rockstar who otherwise could be on his way to
becoming President of the United States.””
“Aurora Mayor Thomas J. Weisner gave Shomon the lobbying
gig in exchange for political work, including getting the
endorsement of Barack Obama back in 2005 when Obama first
said he would remain “neutral” in the heated mayoral race.

Shomon’s main activities are political campaigns and helping
Obama and his friends like Alexi Giannoulias who is now the
Treasurer for the State of Illinois.”

“Plus, when all hell breaks loose on Weisner’s various problems
with cronyism and allegations of corruption (and it WILL),
it’s probably in Obama’s interest that Dan Shomon has nothing
to do with Weisner any longer.”

  1. “The decision could be significant because that same witness — Rajinder Bedi — played a major role in another case, the trial of now-imprisoned ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich.”

    “Bedi testified at Blagojevich’s trial that Nayak had engaged in a cash-back scheme, whereby Nayak would write him checks for doing no work and Bedi would kick back the cash.”

  2. Well, we are about to pass another election cycle so perhaps we will get an appeal ruling on Blagojevich soon.

    Good afternoon sir.
    What do you suppose will happen after all Americans are PARALYSED by Soetoro. Nobody seems tro even give a damn what happens to America. They are still to busy guzzling beer,and watching either FOOTBALL games,or PORN,or BOTH!

    The mental quality of America has been destroyed a little at a time until you now hear what we have. “UMMMM,AHHHHHH,DUH,COOL MAN, F…YO MAMA”.Visually we see hats on backwards,the ass of pants dragging the ground, boogers hanging from our young peoples’ fingers,and blank facial expressions. We are forced to smell their STINKING A$$ES,and witness their twisted behavior. Of course we also see a Batman comic book stuffed into a recent college graduate’s pocket. Need I say any more? Unfortunately for America there is MUCH MORE!

    Little Johnnie’s Weekend Assignment from School

    Author: Unknown (but whoever it is…is great)

    The kids filed into class Monday morning. They were very excited, because their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on productive salesmanship and how they did it.

    Little Sally led off: “I sold girl scout cookies and I made $30,” she said proudly. “My sales approach was to appeal to the customer’s civil spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success.”

    “Very good, Sally,” said the teacher.

    Little Jenny was next: “I sold magazines,” she said. “I made $45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events.”

    “Very good, Jenny,” said the teacher.

    Eventually, it was Johnny’s turn. The teacher held her breath, as Johnny always had a ‘different’ take on almost everything.

    Johnny proudly walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher’s desk. “$2,470″ he said as he smiled.

    “$2,470!,” cried the teacher. “What in the world were you selling?”

    “Toothbrushes,” said Johnny.

    “Toothbrushes,” echoed the teacher. “How could you possibly sell enough tooth brushes to make that much money?”

    “I found the busiest corner in town,” said Johnny. “I set up a Chip & Dip stand, I gave everybody who walked by a free sample.

    They all said the same thing, ‘Hey, this tastes like dog $hit!’
    Then I would say, ‘It is dog $hit…. Wanna’ buy a toothbrush for $10.00?’

    I just used the President Obama method of giving you something $hitty, dressing it up so it looks real good, then telling you it’s free, and then finally making you pay to get the bad taste out of your mouth.”

    Johnny got detention for his outstanding efforts. And Obama is still selling toothbrushes…..

    Bless his little heart, but he was honest in his approach.

  10. AND NOW……
    ……..US airdrops US grenades to IS. Several boxes over 100 grenades per box. Just what the doctor ordered! Now all IS needs to do is PULL THE PIN, count it down and throw,to make some poor Kurds some new anuses. Thank you Soetoro…..BASTARD! (This was with out a doubt an intentional mistake) ordered direct from the WACKEY HOUSE. Maybe some day a couple of the grenades will be used on the person who authorised the airdrop.

  13. UPDATED: Former Police Chief Speaks on Latest Michael Brown Shooting Information
    (quote)
    Fitch calls the information from the investigation coming out as phase two – to “coordinate leaks to the media, and to start getting some of the facts out there to kind of let people down slowly,” he says. “When I say this is phase two – phase one was really Eric Holder’s announcement how they were going to basically do a complete review and take over the Ferguson Police Department.”

    Fitch says he thinks the feds recognize that it’s “probably very unlikely” that there’s going to be charges against Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

    It was only a matter of time before the Left started on Ted Cruz’s ineligibility to be President due to his birth in Canada. Although the writer fails to mention Obama’s own Article II issue at least he admits the issue needs to be dealt with either by the Supreme Court of the United States or by a constitutional amendment.

    Will the 7 pm debate tonight on WCNC that will feature Tom Tillis by himself be an “assassination” attempt on the part of the Charlotte Observer?

    Hagen refuses to debate Tillis again saying she only agreed to three debates….Tillis will be questioned by reps from these: 1) the Charlotte Observer, (who is blatantly on Hagen side), the 2) News and Observer and 3) Time Warner…..

    I smell blood tonight….Tillis’s blood…..I fear he has walked into a skillfully laid ambush by Hagen….

    I hope Tillis shows a copy of the flyers that were distributed in the eastern part of the state this morning saying a Tillis victory will bring on a “lynching”, if he wins. I think things are going to get real nasty the next two weeks.

    What say you?.
