A voice of support for Burris

President Obama's spokesman said the president is behind an investigation into Burris.
Gov. Quinn earlier called for Burris' resignation.
But there was one voice of support today.
Cook County Board President Todd Stroger told our reporter Mark Konkol he's against a Burris resignation.
"I don't think he should resign," Stroger said. "I think he immediately tried to let people know outside of the questions that were asked. In the end this is really part of Gov. Blagojevich's tenure. It's not Roland they care about, they don't like to see anything that had Gov. Blagojevich's fingerprints on. Roland Burris is paying the price for being appointed by him. That's all."

An indorsement from Stroger is worse than none at all, I would rather have that guy on the opposite side of the fence.
