They got Burris now TOO

You saw us (Illiniosians) be made the laughing stock with our Gov Blag (exGov).

He nominated Roland Burris, who was championed by our politicians as 'Clean'.

Burris, UNDER OATH, told the Illinois Senate that he was NOT approached by Blag or his staff about kickbacks.

OOOPS - He has now admitted that Blags Bro hit him up for a 10k contribution to the Blag political war chest.

They have not yet stated wether or not he DID pay anything.

Now again I want to state, I was not a fan of OB, my opinion has improved.
BUT he came out of the Chicago/Illinois Democratic machine, which makes communism look like a democracy. In fact it makes most modern Monarchies look like a democracy.

I was always taught to respect my elders.
I don't have to respect too many people anymore.

They probably have him on wiretap and let him know about it, or started asking questions that "reminded" him of the event.

Personally, I think this is the way politics work in most situations. What disturbs me is the extent of the wiretaps. I wonder who else is tapped?

I'd go out looking for an honest man but I don't think my lantern is big enough.
