Blagojevich and Burris

It now comes out that former Illinois attorney General Rolland Burris, the man Democratic Governor Rod Blagojevich appointed as U.S. Senator, once pressed forward in his attempt to send a man to his death even though DNA evidence had excluded the man, someone else had confessed to the crime, and Burris' own prosecutors pleaded with him to stop. One of Burris' own deputy attorney generals resigned in protest. Why would Burris do such a thing?

He was running for Governor at the time, as a Democrat. See Ed Morrissey for the whole story.
