This guy needs to resign. Not because he’s corrupt but because he is a really bad liar.
First it was he did not get asked to raise money.
Then it was he was asked to raise money. But not by the Governor, it was his brother that asked. But he turned it down and did not try to raise any money. And it was the Senate’s fault that they did not ask specifically about the Blagojevich’s brother.
Now he did try to raise money! But it’s okay, he’s really bad at it.
From the NY Times article:
At a Presidents’ Day dinner in Peoria, Mr. Burris again denied any wrongdoing. He said he had been treated unfairly by Republicans and by the news media. “The media now is almost destroying my character,” Mr. Burris said.
The state of Illinois is having a rough time. Their junior senator is an idiot.
