Blagojevich Names Burris to Obama's Senate Seat

Embattled Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich defied U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, as well as numerous Illinois elected officials, and named former Illinois Attorney General Roland Burris to President-elect Barack Obama's former Senate seat.

"Please don't allow the allegations against me to taint this good and honest man," Blagojevich said.

Personally, the words "good and honest", coming from Rod Blagojevich, aren't very reassuring... but we'll see if the Senate seats Burris or not.
