It has now come out that Sen Roland Burris did talk with former Gov F-words' brother about the Senate seat. I used to admire Sen Burris a lot, but
now I do wish he would resign or promise not to run in 2010. The first time he upset me was when he let Rep Bobby Rush talk at his press conference
when he was first appointed. Rep Rush then pulled out the race card, which is what the old guard African American politicians do, and quite often at
that. It seemed very embarrassing as well, since the state had just overwhelmingly voted Barack Obama president. I let that slide, as they are the old
school politicians, and that is what they know.
Now he has not been forthcoming about his prior meetings with ex-Gov Blagojevich's brother. He has blamed the media, stating he told everything when
asked. I do wonder when politicians will realize that the media and C-Span does tape things, and they do not erase the tape to use over like in the
good old days. He clearly stated he did not meet with F-words' brother, and that is in the record. This may be minor to some, but the whole thing has
been an embarrassment to the people of Illinois (including myself). It is time for a fresh face to run in 2010. I will not vote for Roland Burris.
