Another day, another political scandal out of Chicago… hometown to the Community Organizer in Chief. Looks like Democrat Senator Roland Burris is finally admitting he perjured himself regarding the scheme to sell the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Bill Ayers’ friend.
U.S. Sen. Roland Burris now acknowledges attempting to raise money for ousted Gov. Rod Blagojevich — an explosive twist in his ever-changing story on how he landed a coveted Senate appointment from the man accused of trying to sell the seat.
Burris made the admission to reporters on Monday, after releasing an affidavit over the weekend saying he had more contact with Blagojevich aides about the Senate seat than he had described under oath to the state House panel that recommended Blagojevich’s impeachment. The Democrat also said in the affidavit, but not before the panel, that the governor’s brother asked him for fundraising help.
I guess he only has 2 options now…
1. Remain and serve defiantly like any good Democrat
2. Accept a position in Obama’s cabinet since he’s now proven his qualifications
UPDATE: Did Democrats intentionally cover up for Burris long enough to keep him in the Senate to be the final vote needed to pass the Stealfromus Bill?
