Roland Burris has made an ass out himself and us, in no particular order.A special elections the only way. It's time to call for one Governor Quinn.
The junior U.S. senator from Illinois, a Democrat let it be noted, now admits that he was deeper into conversations with representatives of the disgraced former governor, Rod Blagojevich, about his possible appointment to seat than he first said, under oath.
The admission was made in an affidavit that he had quietly filed with an Illinois House committee on Feb. 5, the same committee that he swore to that no Blagojevich emissary solicited him, at least not more than once, for cash (a $10,000 figure was mentioned) in exchange for his seat. His honest testimony to the committee was a condition demanded by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and others for their approval of his appointment.
