New Allegations Surround Sen. Burris

While many people thought the drama surrounding ex-Il Gov. Rod Blagojevich was over, it appears otherwise. New allegations about Blagojevich’s appointment of Senator Roland Burris to the open Illinois seat have arisen as Burris recently admitted that he was solicited to raise money for Blagojevich’s campaign. While Majority Leader Senator Harry Reid has not called on Senator Burris to resign, the citizens of Illinois are and the Chicago Tribune ran an editorial yesterday asking him to step down. Most Illinois residents want a special election for the seat after all of the controversy and scandal around it. This means that a moderate Republican that truly represents the views of Illinois citizens could win the seat in a special election. We will keep you updated with any news or changes on the situation.
