Burris Needs to Quit

We here at Jumping in Pools had a firm stand that Roland Burris should not have gotten the Illinois Senate seat given to him by corrupt and shamed former Governor Rod Blagojevich. Despite the fact that Burris was named in corrupt circumstances, he was still allowed in the Senate.

President Obama made a public stand against seating Burris. Then when it appeared that such a stand could be unpopular, he backed down quickly. Other Democrats, fearing the loss of votes (and not credibility) soon dropped their opposition to Burris.

Now it turns out that Senator Burris may have been as corrupt as Blagojevich himself. He has admitted to lying and is now just another crooked politician.

Senator Burris must resign within two weeks. There is no excuse for his lies and corruption. He has shown the United States the worst of our politicians. He has shown us the results of putting popularity in front of integrity. He is a shame to our country and needs to do the honorable thing and resign.
