Is there even so much as one honest politician anywhere in the state of Ill-noise?
Just as Illinois was moving past the agony and embarrassment of former Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s ousting, the fellow Democrat whom Blagojevich appointed to the U.S. Senate was hearing calls for his own resignation Sunday amid allegations he lied to legislators.
Freshman Sen. Roland Burris released an affidavit on Saturday that contradicts his statements last month to a House committee investigating Blagojevich’s impeachment.
“I can’t believe anything that comes out of Mr. Burris at this point,” Rep. Jim Durkin, the impeachment committee’s ranking Republican, said at a news conference Sunday. “I think it would be in the best interest of the state if he resigned because I don’t think the state can stand this anymore.”
But an adamant and sometimes emotional Burris told reporters in Chicago later Sunday that he hadn’t done anything wrong and never misled anyone.
“I’ve always conducted myself with honor and integrity,” he said. “At no time did I ever make any inconsistent statement.”
How can you tell an Ill-noise pol is lying out his skank ass? His lips are moving.
