Roland Burris, perjuror:
Sen. Roland Burris admitted Saturday that former Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s brother asked him for a campaign contribution before the governor appointed Burris to the Senate.
The disclosure is at odds with Burris’ testimony in January when an Illinois House impeachment committee specifically asked if he had ever spoken to Robert Blagojevich or other aides to the now-deposed governor about the Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama….
It’s the second time Burris has changed his story. In an unsolicited affidavit to the impeachment committee on Jan. 6, Burris said he had only one limited conversation with the governor before accepting the Senate appointment.
Can we please get this clown out of the Senate and put the Rod Blagojevich embarrassment behind us at last?
