Roland Burris has been kind enough to provide support for my contention that ALL ILLINOIS POLITICIANS ARE CORRUPT. The FBI should wiretap every stinking one of them. The Burris story is below.
Illinois GOP leader calls on Sen. Burris to resign
By RUPA SHENOY, Associated Press Writer
Just as Illinois was moving past the agony and embarrassment of former Gov. Rod Blagojevich's ousting, the fellow Democrat whom Blagojevich appointed to the U.S. Senate was hearing calls for his own resignation Sunday amid allegations he lied to legislators.
Freshman Sen. Roland Burris released an affidavit on Saturday that contradicts his statements last month to a House committee investigating Blagojevich's impeachment.
"I can't believe anything that comes out of Mr. Burris at this point," Rep. Jim Durkin, the impeachment committee's ranking Republican, said at a news conference Sunday. "I think it would be in the best interest of the state if he resigned because I don't think the state can stand this anymore."
