Illinois Senator turned away at Capitol
Senate appointee Roland Burris of Illinois today was turned away from the Senate building today thus setting up a huge legal battle from both sides..
What is indisputable here is that Governor Blagovich is under a cloud of suspicion on the way he runs his administration. But what is equally clear is that he is still the governor of Illinois and still has the authority to appoint a replacement to the Senate.
I think Harry Reid and the Senate is on thin ice here legally and will ultimately lose the battle.
