Ill. Sen. Roland Burris -- So What Else Is New? - Obama Corruption Eruptions - Part 6

By Gary Starr For The Neville Awards
Posted March 1, 2009

Yes, Yes...we at Neville know this is a well-digested story and we are a little late to the party, but for form's sake and journalistic symmetry, and the fact that we can never resist taking a shot at the Fraudinator-in-Chief, we are compelled to report yet another example of the most corrupt administration in history.

After swearing to the Illinois House impeachment panel on Jan. 8, 2009 that he [Burris] never had any conversations about the vacated Obama senate seat with now impeached "Guv" Bloggy, it turns out that hack Chicago pol Roland Burris perjured himself:

Rep. Durkin: "At any time were you directly or indirectly aware of a quid pro quo with the governor for the appointment of this vacant Senate seat?

Burris: No sir."

We are shocked! SHOCKED!!! It turns out that Bloggy's brother solicited Burris for up to $10,000 in campaign cash before Bloggy named Burris to the coveted post.

Fox News reported:

U.S. Sen. Roland Burris, under fire for amending his testimony on his appointment to the U.S. Senate, said Monday that he told the panel investigating former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich that he would file an addendum to his remarks.

"There was no change of any of our testimony. We followed up as we promised to the impeachment committee," he told reporters, in a Chicago press conference that lasted just minutes.

Burris took no questions from reporters but said all the information he supplied was voluntary and not the result of contact from federal agents investigating the former governor.

Any suggestion otherwise is "absolutely, positively not true," he said.

House Republicans say they want an independent probe into whether Burris perjured himself in front of the panel by not revealing he had conversations with five Blagojevich allies besides the former chief of staff he testified about speaking with.

The situation is so embarrasing that even Ill. Sen. Dick "Our troops are Nazis" Durbin has called for Burris to resign.

At this time it's doubtful that Burris will leave and we at Neville are only to happy to have Burris remain for the next two years as a symbol of the low-rent, machine, gutter politics that this Chicago mafia (Obama, Emanuel et al) has brought to Washington.
