UNDER PRESSURE

Illinois Gov: Burris Must Go

You can add another nail to Roland Burris’s coffin: Illinois Governor Pat Quinn has called for Burris to resign from the Senate and for his replacement to be chosen by special election. The pressure comes after it was revealed that Roland Burris had been approached by Rod Blagojevich’s brother about raising money for the former disgraced governor. Burris so far has been defiant and insisted he’s done nothing wrong.
