Roland Burris should not have accepted his appointment to the Senate. No matter what he would try to do as senator, he would function under a cloud of doubt–that he was somehow tainted by our psychopathic governor, Blagojevich. Honestly, who in their right mind would accept such an appointment?
The Illinois Supreme Court is holding a hearing to determine if Jesse White has to sign off on his Election Certificate. As I am not an expert on election law, I have no idea if he has to do so. The scant reading I have done on the issue, however, suggests that Jesse White does not have a legal foot to stand on.
I’m not a fan of Burris–and the more I read about him, the more I don’t like him–and I do not think it is fair that he will get seated. However, this is a legal matter. Legal matters are seldom fair.
