Roland Burris ... under fire for lying about his contacts with now impeached Govenor Blagovitch of Illinois, has just been asked to resign his Senate seat vacated by BH Obama by the NEW Govenor or Illinois.




This from CNN minutes ago.

He should never have been seated in the first place.
I hope he is charged with perjury.

I just checked CNN's web site. It doesn't have any information on it.

I caught it out of the corner of my ear, while researching something on the computer, and turned to watchit on the telly.


The woman did say he resigned and I took it at face value ... It was only a blurb then and they went on to another story.

They just did it again and it is not as it was first time around it is calling for his resignation not, "he resigned".

Still, mea culpa, I posted it before I had confirmed it.

Ya can't believe everything ya hears on the telly. LOL


I shoulda learned that lesson ten times over by now, Coach.

Burris never should have been appointed. During his tenure as Illinois AG he displayed wanton disregard for the life and freedom of a man who was wrongfully convicted, and he did so to gain political capital.

He is a member of the great class of incorrigibly corrupt public officials.

I am aware of that disregard, and may even have posted the story some time ago. He's an absolute piece of crap.
