Senator Roland Burris, Junior Senator for the State of Illinois, the man who literally went on a media tour after his appointment to the seat by then embattled Gov. Rod Blagojevich, would have respective public officials and the American public to believe that he is not guilty of perjury after revelation of Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s brother seeking Burris’ assistance in fundraising for the governor. I know that is a long sentence but this is a weird situation.
Senator Burris and his legal counsel were not prepared for the questions from the media at yesterday's press conference. There was stammering, stumbling, and obvious defensiveness. Not a good look.
If anyone didn’t think Burris was tainted by Rod Blagojevich before, they sure think it now.
