WASHINGTON (CNN) – Even as he faces calls to resign from fellow Democrats, Illinois Sen. Roland Burris has been covering all of the bases for 2010 – just in case.
A spokesperson for Burris said Monday that the Web site supportburris.com was launched soon after the Democrat was seated in the Senate. The site allows supporters to submit donations to support Burris for re-election in 2010, even though the senator hasn’t made any definitive plans about the race just yet, according to the spokesperson.
The site appears to be in its very skeletal stages. In addition to soliciting donations, the site allows visitors to sign-up for e-mails, to sign up to volunteer for the senator’s campaign, and to share the site with a friend.
It also contains a biography of Burris and some information about his immediate family. Other pages on the site “Accomplishments,” “Endorsements,” “Issues,” “Legislation,” and several pages intended to be dedicated to press coverage of Burris and publication of photos and videos by his campaign – are all empty at this time.
Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin and Gov. Patrick Quinn have both recently said they believed Burris should resign his Senate seat. Their comments followed his revelation that Burris had engaged in unsuccessful efforts to raise money for Rod Blagojevich, the former governor of Illinois who was removed from office after being impeached, while the governor was considering him as a possible Senate replacement for President Barack Obama.
That joker needs to go! But Burris has superglued himself to his seat.
I can't wait for the heavy duty solvent of the 2010 elections.
whats so bad about raising money for a candidate? he wasn't inferring illegal ideas...
I think they are all crooks. He just was friends with the wrong crook.
HE NEEDS TO RESIGN. ALL THE NEWS IS ABOUT HIM AND NOT ABOUT MORE IMPORTANT STUFF LIKE WHO ARE WE BORROWING ALL THIS MONEY FROM TO SPEND, SPEND? THE RECESSION IN THE 80'S WAS NOT THIS BAD.
Now Bozo has to be in those pages somewhere.
Burris = Blago = Emanuel = Rezko =Obama
What do they all have in common?
All of them are liars or thieves from Chicgo.
I gotta say there is something really wrong with Roland Burris... has a serious case of narcissism, more interested in his own legacy than anything else. Willing to do anything so that he can chisel in another achievement on his mausoleum without caring about the repercussions.
What an overinfalted ego! Resign you idiot!
I thought one of the conditions of Burris being seated at all was his pledge not to run in 2010? Regardless, with his ever changing story in regards to his contacts with the governor, I don't think he has a chance in heck of winning.
What an Idiot.....its time to go home and stay there Burris; You are too "full of your self to be in politics" – Stop adding to you plot!! No one will care when you gone
Roland Burris is a joke ! I want even call him a Senator from Illinois. The great state of Illinois.., kick him out and find someone better. You have taken enough 'abuse'. All Roland Burris thinks about is himself.., life at his tombstone ! You can do better. Mike in Montana
Let him run.
He'll just lose in a landslide during the 2010 Democratic Primary. :)
is he obama's father?
He just wasted all that money on a website.... what a shame.
Find another Democrat to fill that space! I don't care if he is black, white or green just as long as s/he is qualified! And to be qualified, s/he should have NO connection with Blago!
Go away Burris Go away
