Corruption Continues

Why are we so gullible? I actually believed Senator (now) Burris when he said he wasn't a part of Blago's pay-to-play scandal. Now we hear:

After a tour at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, Burris reiterated his denial that he'd been involved in any type of pay-to-play scheme regarding his Senate seat.

SEN. BURRIS: 'I did not give him money'

His comments came a day after the release of a transcript of a conversation with Robert Blagojevich in which Burris offers to "personally do something" for Rod Blagojevich's campaign fund.

Burris says he didn't try to buy the Senate seat once held by President Obama and never committed perjury. He's been scrutinized since his appointment by the now-ousted governor in December and for changing his story about whether he promised anything in exchange for it.

When Burris denied it, it made sense that someone involved wasn't dirty. Well fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on you, you s.o.b.

You know who else I don't believe anymore? Did you hear Al Gore deny any personal gain from his various green enterprises? He said that any profit goes back into environmental causes. In other words, he is using profits to grow his business. It was his over-the-top earnestness that gave it away.
