Governor Patt Quinn says it's time for Burris to resign


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.
