Ronald Burris

This past January, when Blagojevich-appointed Ronald Burris took over as the newest U.S. Senator, everyone was a little wary of the whole situation. In attempt to quell the fears of the American people and the people of Illinois, Senator Burris testified under oath that he did not seek to raise funds for Blagojevich while seeking the Senate seat. While this testimony was meant to free Senator Burris of his guilt by association, instead of purging him it may have perjured him, costing him a reputation he spent a lifetime trying to establish. I still don't have all the facts, but the people of Illinois have had to handle a scandal too many this year, and everyone at work seems to be a little fed up with the state's latest political em"Burris"ment.
