The Illinois Supreme Court says Secretary of State Jesse White doesn’t need to sign Roland Burris’ appointment to the U.S. Senate to make it valid.
The ruling says no Illinois official has to do anything further to validate the appointment made by Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
Burris was refused President-elect Barack Obama’s vacant Senate seat this week in part because Senate
Democratic leaders said his paperwork was incomplete without White’s signature.
The state Supreme Court says nothing in state law requires White to sign the appointment.
White has said he wouldn’t certify any Blagojevich appointment in the wake of the governor’s federal corruption arrest unless the court forced him to.
Roland Burris should force Harry Reid’s hand and immediately file suit in the United States Supreme Court demanding that he be seated.
Roland Burris will win and so will Illinois Governor Hot Rod Blagojevich who was impeached today.
