Today Governor Pat Quinn says it's time for Roland Burris to resign from the U.S. Senate.
Quinn calls Burris an honorable man but says there's a shadow over his service in the senate. The Governor says it's in the best interest of the people of Illinois for Burris to step down.
Quinn also says a new senator should be chosen by special election. Burris was appointed by former Governor Rod Blagojevich, who was later impeached and removed from office.
