Senator Durbin calls for Burris to resign

Posted:

Senator Dick Durbin is asking Senator Roland Burris to resign but he is refusing to do so.

The junior Senator is in Washington D.C. for the first time since allegations surfaced he was untruthful during the impeachment proceedings of former Governor Blagojevich.

Burris had a closed door meeting with Senator Durbin Tuesday afternoon to discuss the matter. Other Democrats have also called for Burris to resign.

"As far as my colleagues, grasping to get the truth, confused and concerned about disclosures that have been made," said Senator Dick Durbin, D-Illinois.

Burris also is refusing to say whether he'll run for the seat in 2010.
