Burris Denied By SCOTUS

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Sep 20, 2010 9:40PM

The Supreme Court of the United States has shot down a request by Sen. Roland Burris to put a stop to the special election that will happen November 2 in conjunction with the general election happening that same day. [Confused? Refresh your memory here.] Burris wanted inclusion in the special election since he's the current Senator; he is not, however, running in the general election. This all means that Roland will cease to be our Senator by Thanksgiving meaning we can bid adieu to The Lord's Senatorâ„¢.
