Illinois Governor Pat Quinn Says Burris Should Resign

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn says Senator Burris should resign. He is the latest in a growing chorus of officials calling for inquiries, explanations, or out right resignations. Quinn wants a special election to decide who should replace Burris, who himself replaced Obama in the Senate. All of this stems from information that recently came to light regarding possible fund raising efforts of Burris for Blagojevich.

There are some questioning if the information was purposely hidden until after the stimulus/bailout bill vote to ensure its passing. While we may never know the answer to that question, it seems likely that Burris will not go down without a fight.
