    More trouble for Roland Burris?
    Thursday, February 26, 2009 3:55 PM From NBC's Mark Murray

    Uh, oh. The Chicago Sun-Times: "The son of embattled Sen. Roland Burris is a federal tax deadbeat who landed a $75,000-a-year state job under former Gov. Rod Blagojevich five months ago... Blagojevich's administration hired Roland W. Burris II as a senior counsel for the state's housing authority Sept. 10 -- about six weeks after the Internal Revenue Service slapped a $34,163 tax lien on Burris II and three weeks after a mortgage company filed a foreclosure suit on his South Side house."

    More: "A spokeswoman for the Illinois Housing Development Authority indicated Wednesday there was nothing improper about Burris II's employment by the agency... Burris II's hiring, however, raises more questions about Sen. Burris' interactions with Blagojevich and his inner circle at a time when the governor was soliciting Sen. Burris for campaign contributions and Burris was angling to have Blagojevich appoint him to the Senate seat once held by President Obama."

    With all his tax trouble, maybe young Burris is angling for an Obama cabinet appointment.

    You can be sure young Mr. Burris was the best candidate for the job with the Housing Authority. At least he has some experience, facing near eviction from his own home.

    One more thing for Roland to put on his mausoleum monument, right after he adds: first black senator to be kicked out of office. Maybe he can figure out something positive to put there about his deadbeat kid.

    I'm in Florida for a couple weeks. Getting a lot of laughs when I tell people where I'm from. I just say, "Illinois, where the governors make the license plates."

    Illinois, vote early and vote often ... Even the dead people get to vote in the "Land of Lincoln", not to mention get good jobs with the State and all of the benefits ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    It just never ends with those people. That's all they know. It's just a matter of time before hussein is exposed. When a liberal politician promises an ethical, open and honest administration,,that is the time they should be investigated. Just look at hussein's cabinet and nominees!!!
