State Rep. John Fritchey (D-Chicago) told our political reporter Abdon Pallasch yesterday that he wasn't trying to deflect questions on behalf of U.S. Sen. Roland Burris during his sworn testimony before a House committee Jan. 8.
As lawmakers questioned Burris at the time, Fritchey repeatedly interjected, saying Burris didn't have to answer certain questions.

Burris had a lawyer right next to him for advise and direction not to mention he use to be the Illinois Attorney General, it wasn't Fritchery's position to block the questioning but he did it anyway.

The impeachment was about protecting others by getting Blagojevich out of the way.

It's a strategy that's not working.
