Senator Burris Now Says He Tried to Raise Cash For Blago

Goodness! Who would have guessed this?…
Senator Burris (D-IL) now acknowledges that he did in fact attempt to raise cash for impeached Governor Blagojevich (D-IL).
The AP reported:

U.S. Sen. Roland Burris now acknowledges attempting to raise money for ousted Gov. Rod Blagojevich — an explosive twist in his ever-changing story on how he landed a coveted Senate appointment from the man accused of trying to sell the seat.

Burris made the admission to reporters on Monday, after releasing an affidavit over the weekend saying he had more contact with Blagojevich aides about the Senate seat than he had described under oath to the state House panel that recommended Blagojevich’s impeachment.
