The Blago scandal is the gift that keeps on giving to reporters and bloggers. Now we learn that Senator Roland Burris lied about his contact with Blago representatives prior to his appointment to the U.S. Senate seat vacated by President Barack Obama. It turns out Burris was talking to Blago’s brother about raising money for Blagojevich. Upon that revelation we get this quote from Illinois Democratic State Representative Jack Franks, “What a mess. What a nightmare. If [Burris] cares about the state as much as he professes, he would resign now.”
I agree. Burris should resign forthwith.
