Just a humble "Community Organiser"...

...with some pretty unsavoury friends...
Tony Rezko, court records show, had a net worth of $53 million in 2003 -- the same year LaSalle Bank gave him a $5 million-plus mortgage for his mansion in Wilmette.

If the walls could talk, they'd tell stories about the parties Rezko threw there, including campaign fund-raisers for ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich and President Obama.

Now, with Rezko behind bars and his business empire destroyed, the 8,596-square-foot home went on the auction block Monday after being foreclosed upon in May.

Nobody wanted it.
