lawmakers call for Burris perjury prob

Sen. Roland Burris admitted Saturday that former Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s brother asked him for a campaign contribution before the governor appointed Burris to the Senate.

The disclosure is at odds with Burris’ testimony in January when an Illinois House impeachment committee specifically asked if he had ever spoken to Robert Blagojevich or other aides to the now-deposed governor about the Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama.

State Rep. Jim Durkin, the impeachment committee’s ranking Republican, told The Associated Press that he and House Republican Leader Tom Cross would seek an outside investigation into whether Burris perjured himself.Jan. 16: Sen.
