From the You Can't Make This Up Dept.TM:
The Chicago Sun-Times reports...
Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich's brother solicited U.S. Sen. Roland Burris for up to $10,000 in campaign cash before Blagojevich named Burris to the coveted post -- something Burris initially failed to disclose under oath before an Illinois House impeachment panel, records and interviews show.
Is anyone surprised?
Burris' statement offers the third version of events he has given about his discussions concerning the Senate seat, to which Blagojevich appointed him in late December, after Blagojevich was hit with federal corruption charges that included an allegation he tried to sell the Senate appointment.
In politics, Democrats have to keep changing the story until you come up with a version that
everyone the press can live with.
This little situation could get a ugly for Burris. He could get his corrupt ass kicked out of Congress just like
Dodd, Rangel, Murtha and Stevens. Oh wait, he's Democrat, he'll get a free pass from the press. In fact, it's probably the last we'll hear of it.
