Good Job Roland

Even money in Vegas that this seat is turning Republican next election:
  • [Tribune] U.S. Sen. Roland Burris has changed his story again about what happened before ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich appointed him to the Senate, and state Republican leaders said Saturday they want an investigation into whether he perjured himself.

    Burris gradually has acknowledged deeper contacts with Blagojevich allies after initially portraying himself as a surprise pick for the controversial seat the former governor is accused of trying to sell.
  • [Sun Times] State lawmakers are calling for a criminal investigation into whether U.S. Sen. Roland Burris committed perjury before a state impeachment panel, in the wake of a Sun-Times exclusive story published online today.

    The development comes after the Chicago Democrat failed to initially disclose under oath to a House panel that he was hit up for campaign cash by former Gov. Rod Blagojevich's brother.

How much of this is on FBI wiretaps?

And so the preemptive strike of taking Blago down too early (in order to ensure a corrupt replacement didn't get Obama's spot) has backfired.

And, no, we are not surprised. Saddened, maybe, but not surprised.

That explains it! Every time Burris was on TV, before this was all hammered out, he looked like the Cheshire Cat.

Un-fucking-believable! Illinois has got to be the laughing stock of the country once again.

And before you bring up little Todd Stroger, he knows his time is up and he's getting the boot...

As was thought by many, Roland Burris is most likely senile or approaching that time in his life. Another thought may be that Roland is as big a scammer as most pols in this state and county are. If his failure to mention the bribe attempt cannot be resolved, I suggest that Mr Burris be removed from his senate position and further embarass this screwed up state so that voters will finally kick some of these lifelong pols out of office in the next election cycle. It is a bit odd that in the middle of this huge Blago scandal about pay for play that good ole boy Roland "forgot" about a couple of attempts by Blagos brother to squeeze $10 large for a campaign donation. Silly, just silly!

Are you fucking serious?!!? Every post on here has atleast 20 or more calls for daley's head. Either prison or hopefully to have a grabber and die on national tv so I can watch it on youtube over and over. Sorry that obama, burris and the toddler are nothing but typical corrupt chicago machine politicians and sorry that obama hasn't become the messiah that you so thought he would but please think before you open your stupid mouth. Oh and by the way, I'm one of those "dumbassed" Garfield Ridge residents you speak of and for your information, I have NEVER voted for daley or anybody he has supported.

He won't step down, and won't be asked to, either. But his tenure as U.S. Senator will be short.

Strikes a nerve but true.
Daley IS the most corrupt Chicago politician of all time
Daley IS more corrupt then Obama ,Stroger, Burris or Washington combined...only his dad was probably more corrupt then him but I doubt it
Mt Greenwood, Edison Park, Garcia Ridge AND most of the gold coast will vote this crooked little man back into office
It's not a color issue, its reality
Daley makes Blago look like Honest Abe and the brain dead Chicagoans still love his filthy ass.
Chicago voters , especially you democratic machine flunkies deserve what you get.

REPUBLICANS CLAIM DEMOCRATS TRIED TO 'BURY' BURRIS AFFIDAVIT

Produced by Tony Arnold on Sunday, February 15, 2009

"Top Illinois Republicans are accusing some Democrats of trying to hide new information about the appointment of Roland Burris to the U.S. Senate. Burris submitted a new affidavit to the head of the Illinois House impeachment committee, Barbara Flynn Currie, dated February 5th. But the affidavit didn't become public until a Chicago newspaper unveiled it this weekend...."

you have to wonder how stupid someone has to be to lie about this kind of thing under oath, given that when he made the statements under oath he knew Blago had been wiretapped by the feds for some time, and that whatever he said would be scrutinized very closely for any inconsistancies.

And this silliness about filing affidavits after the fact with the impeachment panel, what is that? You lie under oath and then take it back?

Incredible.

Jon Burge was indicted for perjury based on the statements of convicted felons for incidents that might of happened 25 years ago.

If the Feds can do that, then it should be easy to indict and convict Roland Burris for perjury because the statements he lied about are on tape and occurred in the last two months.

Fitzgerald will not go after Burris because he will upset Bobby Rush and the gang!

THIS white man has NEVER supported Richard M Daley or his father before him, I am old enough to have voted against Richard J Daley twice.

I didn't support the old man and I despise the son. And for quite a while I lived out in Edison Park.

It doesn't much matter though what people say they like or don't like about Daley. Real world fact is that barely 30% of voters even bothered to vote in the Mayoral election of 2007. What they say now is bullshit, what they did on election day is stay away from the polls.

That, more than anything, is why Daley got elected.

Most folks don't bother, and the machine is good at getting out loyalist voters to get the majority of the 30% of people who do vote.

Daley got 70% in 2007 of the 30% who bothered to vote.

In France the turnout in their last presidential election was 84%, say what you want, they get off their asses and vote. And in Australia voter turnout is way over 90%. Voting is mandatory in Australia.

But here in this great democracy, this bastion of freedom and corrupt political leaders, we get 30%-35% to actually vote.

Mostly we are lazy assholes more than willing to give a bullshit opinion to anyone who will listen but much less willing to go out to exercise the right that so many bled and died to preserve.

And we even have early voting to make it so convenient. Doesn't help much. Makes one wonder if all those sacrifices by so many brave young men was really worth it.
