Burris needs to do the decent thing and resign. Until he does Illinois just won't be free of the Blagojevich taint.

Time to repeal the 17th amendment and have the state legistlatures start appointing Senators again!

The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, elected by the people thereof, for six years; and each Senator shall have one vote. The electors in each State shall have the qualifications requisite for electors of the most numerous branch of the State legislatures.
When vacancies happen in the representation of any State in the Senate, the executive authority of each State shall issue writs of election to fill such vacancies: Provided, That the legislature of any State may empower the executive thereof to make temporary appointments until the people fill the vacancies by election as the legislature may direct.

This amendment shall not be so construed as to affect the election or term of any Senator chosen before it becomes valid as part of the Constitution

Gee, I thought Burris was a "Godly man", a man of integrity? That's what we were told.

Looks like its just the same old Illinois Democrat corruption.
