More Scandal in Illinois

It would seem that there is no end to the corruption in the Democratic party, and particularly in Illinois.  While the Democrats certainly do not have a monopoly on corruption, by all appearances, they have as strong a hold on it as they do on Congress at the moment.

Roland Burris clearly obviously and intentionally lied to the Illinois State legislature when testifying for Rod Blagojevich.  Most likely, he did this because he knew that telling the truth would tarnish his own appointment to the Senate Seat that had been held by POTUS Obama.

A month after he testified that he had no contact with people in Blago's administration regarding the seat, he filed an affidavit clarifying (changing) that testimony.  It seems obvious to anyone looking objectively at this that he filed the affidavit quietly, with the aid of a Democratic State Senator, in hopes that nobody would notice.  Republican Senators read about the "clarification" in ... hold on to your seats ... the NEWSPAPERS!!!

It is only a matter of time before Burris is charged with perjury.  The only question is whether or not he will get away with it, anyway, as many Democrats seem to be able to do.
