U.S. Sen. Roland Burris is still on the hot seat. The Chicago Sun-Times reports a congressional panel was querying state lawmakers about Burris' testimony before a state House panel. The questioning of the senator appointed by Rod Blagojevich came about one month after the Chicago Democrat announced he wouldn't run for a full term in 2010.

Has anyone noticed that the 19th Ward "Service Office" is located at It also has links to contribute to the "19th Ward". The ward (or the Democrats) also publish a newspaper that they sell ad space. Where does that money go? The ward democrats or the Ward office? Are ward offices supposed to go into business for themselves?

I think there is a conflict of interest here.

Furthermore, the Democratic Committeeman (O'Shea) is also listed on the site. If the Democratic Committeeman is on the "Ward" site shouldn't the Republican Committeeman also be on the site - if there is one.

It looks like the 19th Ward can't differentiate between the Ward Office and the 19th Ward Democrats Office.
