Tapes don't prove innocence for Roland Burris

After being appointed as Senator by Rod Blagojevich, Roland Burris took office, but on May 26, a transcript of a November discussion between Burris and Robert Blagojevich was released by a federal court.

The discussion was about raising funds for the governor, and while Burris stated that the tape showed his innocence, others had the opposite perception, like UIS political scientist Kent Redfield.

Remarks by Redfield on the topic are featured in a June 5, 2009, story on http://www.findingdulcinea.com/.
