    Ill. Court says Burris doesn't need 2nd signature

    Assossiated Press January 9:

    CHICAGO 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.



    This ruling removes one technical reason stated by the Senate Majority Leader which would deny Burris taking his appointed U.S. Senate seat. Reid also said that any appointment by Blagojevich would be tainted by the governor's ongoing scandal.

    If that's how the court ruled, then Burris should be seated.
