Under the circumstances, it seems to me that it would be more appropriate to have some humility in this matter. Burris is really coming off as a power-grabber here. This whole thing is so strange.
(AP) — U.S. Senate appointee Roland Burris has asked a court to force Secretary of State Jesse White to certify his appointment to Barack Obama's old Senate seat.
An attorney for Burris said they filed paperwork Wednesday with the Illinois Supreme Court.
It's the start of legal wrangling over the seat that embattled Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich filled by naming Burris.The move comes after White rejected Blagojevich's proclamation naming Burris to the Senate.
