Roland Burris Tidbit

Hmmmm maybe Senate Democrats are right to be reluctant:
In an ironic twist, Roland Burris was appointed to his first state government job in 1973 by Illinois Governor Dan Walker -- who later went to the hoosegow, one of three Illinois governors since 1960 to end up wearing prison garb (there have been seven elected governors during this period).
Burris may not have been involved, but since Blago looks to be on the fast track to becoming the fourth Illinois governor in 48 years to find himself behind bars, it is a little too messy.
