Roland Burris Should Resign

Even if he didn't break the law he should step down or the Senate should expel him. For public officials perception is everything and if, especially through your own comments or actions, you have fuzzied your own integrity then you need to accept responsibility and take the consequences. And shame on Rep. Bobby Rush for crying racism before Burris was seated in the Senate in the first place. It is a crying shame that without Obama there was no longer an African American in the Senate, but freaking the liberals into submission by calling them racist is so cynical it is sleazy. The Democrats didn't want Burris because of the ethical baggage he carried. Now events are proving that they were right to be wary of Blagoevich's pick for the President's former seat in the Senate.
