Another Reason Roland Burris Must Go

In addition to all these reasons, there is yet another reason that Democrat Roland Burris - appointed U.S. Senator from Illinois - must go.

It seems Burris' son received a state job from disgraced, corrupt and impeached Illinois Governor Rod "I got somethin' to sell, you wanna buy it" Blagojevich. The Chicago Sun Times:

    The son of embattled Sen. Roland Burris is a federal tax deadbeat who landed a $75,000-a-year state job under former Gov. Rod Blagojevich five months ago, the Chicago Sun-Times has learned.

    Blagojevich's administration hired Roland W. Burris II as a senior counsel for the state's housing authority Sept. 10 -- about six weeks after the Internal Revenue Service slapped a $34,163 tax lien on Burris II and three weeks after a mortgage company filed a foreclosure suit on his South Side house.

    A spokeswoman for the Illinois Housing Development Authority indicated Wednesday there was nothing improper about Burris II's employment by the agency, whose mission includes overseeing mortgage programs for low-income home buyers and anti-foreclosure initiatives.

    Burris II's hiring, however, raises more questions about Sen. Burris' interactions with Blagojevich and his inner circle at a time when the governor was soliciting Sen. Burris for campaign contributions and Burris was angling to have Blagojevich appoint him to the Senate seat once held by President Obama.

    Blagojevich appointed Burris to that seat in late December after Blagojevich was charged with trying to sell the vacancy to the highest bidder.

Oh, of course there was nothing improper about Burris II's employment and state job. Hell, a Liberal politician could microwave a baby born from a botched abortion, slather it with BBQ sauce, put it on a stick, deep fry it and eat it on live television and the response from Liberals would be, "oh, there is nothing improper about that."

Roland Burris Must Go. He simply must.


Blago and Burris. "Ya gotta pay to play! Chicago style!"
