It’s pretty cut and dried. What follows are the words of Burris under oath…
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.”
Now it comes out that Burris admitted that Blago’s brother Rob asked him for help for “fundraising” back in October and November.
If you or I were to testify as such under oath, we’d be heading for the “gray bar hotel” for perjury. Period.
Look, Burris is no big deal. No doubt, compared with some of the Washington weasels he’s probably “Mr. Goody Two-Shoes”. But the question really isn’t whether Burris is guilty or not, but whether America has the smarts, character, and objectivity to admit that Burris perjured himself.
After Wright, Ayers, ACORN, Rezko, ad nauseum… I ain’t gonna hold my breath.
