Burris Must Go, Says Illinois Democrat

Via Guy Benson, I heard that Illinois state representative Jack Franks, a Democrat, has called on Sen. Roland Burris to resign.

Will President Obama join the chorus that includes Franks, the Chicago Tribune, and the Washington Post?

Illinois’s other senator, Dick Durbin, isn’t quite there. He says that “he believes the testimony that Sen. Roland Burris gave to Illinois lawmakers about his appointment to the U.S. Senate was incomplete and that a Senate ethics investigation now under way is appropriate.”
