Blagojevich Hit Burris Up For $10K

Rod "I got somethin' for sale, you wanna buy it?" Blagojevich

The Chicago Sun Times:

    Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich's brother solicited U.S. Sen. Roland Burris for up to $10,000 in campaign cash before Blagojevich named Burris to the coveted post -- something Burris initially failed to disclose under oath before an Illinois House impeachment panel, records and interviews show.

    Burris (D-Ill.) acknowledges being hit up for the money in a new affidavit he has sent to the head of the House committee that recommended Blagojevich be removed from office.

    The affidavit is dated Feb. 5 -- three weeks after Burris was sworn in to replace President Obama in the Senate.

    Burris -- who did not give money to the Blagojevich campaign fund in response to the previously undisclosed solicitation -- provided a copy of the sworn statement to the Chicago Sun-Times Friday in response to questions about his contacts with the Blagojevich camp about fund-raising.

    Burris acknowledged having three conversations with Robert Blagojevich, who headed the Friends of Blagojevich campaign fund -- and one of those was likely recorded by the FBI.

Using the "even the appearance of impropriety should warrant resignation" Mantra preached by The Left, Burris should resign from the Senate. This won't happen, because Liberals and Progressives will fall back on their Double Standard Rule; what they expect from others they don't apply to themselves.

You have got to be shittin' me! $10grand for a US senate seat?!? Where the hell was I when this deal was going down? I have an extra 10K in my account and I would make a great US senator! I would love to recklessly and without any conscience spend other people's hard earned money by essentially flushing it down the drain! The beautiful thing is that I would get both paid and perks for doing it! Blago is not only stupid but easy and cheap! The Chicago Machine will have an awkward and hard time cleaning this one up!
That DOES seem like a bargain price, doesn't it?
