Mr. Burris Goes To Washington

The Illinois Supreme Court ruled today that Governor Rod Blagojevich’s appointment of Roland Burris’ to the Senate does not require the Secretary of State’s signature to be valid. The unanimous ruling came as no surprise, but it stripped Senate Democrats of their principal excuse for barring Burris from taking the seat to which he has been appointed. It now appears that Mr. Burris will soon be Senator Burris after all.
