From the Washington Compost: Prosecutor: Sen. Burris won't face perjury charge
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- Illinois Sen. Roland Burris will not be charged with perjury for statements he made before an Illinois House impeachment committee because there isn't enough evidence to support the charge, the state prosecutor investigating the case said Friday. [...]
[...] "I am obviously very pleased with today's decision by State's Attorney John Schmidt. His investigation was both thorough and fair, and I am glad that the truth has prevailed," Burris said in a statement.
"This matter has now been fully investigated; I cooperated at every phase of the process, and as I have said from the beginning, I have never engaged in any pay-to-play, never perjured myself, and came to this seat in an honest and legal way. Today's announcement confirms all that," he said. [...]
Even though Burris has changed his story many times, that doesn't seem to matter to anyone. And, the audio from the "non-negotiating" for the position doesn't matter either. Next we will find out that Blago didn't do anything either and it was all a misunderstanding. Nice.
Historically, and for the most part, Republicans resign when things look "funny". Not so for Democrats...EVER. DNC: Culture of Corruption.
