An end-of-the-year gambit from Blago.
Voila (via Sun-Times):
Gov. Blagojevich today is expected to name former state Comptroller and Attorney General Roland Burris to Illinois’ vacant U.S. Senate seat, a knowledgeable source said this morning.
Former Illinois Attorney General Roland Burris, 71, had lobbied the governor for the position in recent weeks.
Burris made a previous attempt at the Senate seat in the past — unsuccessfully. In 1984, he was beat out for the Democratic nomination by Paul Simon.
Burris is a reliable Blago crony.
He’d also be the only black member of the U.S. Senate, putting Harry Reid in a spot, as Allahpundit notes.
What to do? What to do?
Update: Dems say no.
Video of Blago’s race-baiting caberet!
Enjoy the show!
Update: Obama weighs in. Don’t seat Burris.
