"Darrel Thompson Sure Can Quit Burris"

Three weeks ago, Darrel Thompson, a senior adviser to Harry Reid, was dispatched to serve as Chief of Staff to Senator Roland Burris to help him put a team together and manage his office. Now Thompson is quitting as Democrats everywhere once again hop off the Burris bandwagon now that it’s come out that he hasn’t been playing it straight about his dealings with former governor Blagojevic. And now Illinois Governor Quinn is calling for a speedy special election process to get the state a senator untainted by this whole mess. That sounds like a very good idea to me.
