Which Way the Wind Blows
Two days before taking his seat in the “millionaire’s club” they call the U.S. Senate, Roland Burris got a royal send-off from the City Council Tuesday and praise for having so much integrity, he “untainted the process.”
A resolution originally crafted to pressure Senate President Harry Reid and Majority Leader Richard Durbin (D-Ill.) to seat Burris turned into a love-fest for the man appointed by disgraced Gov. Blagojevich.
“We all know we got issues with the person [who] appointed him and that the process had been tainted. But when he chose Roland Burris, he untainted the process. He gave integrity back to the process,” said Ald. Anthony Beale (9th).
