Burris is raising money under the Burris 2010 banner, though it is quite uncertain whether Burris--appointed by the impeached and indicted Gov. Blagojevich--is going to run. Burris is also waiting for permission from the Senate to open a legal expense fund.
Burris is under investigation by the Sangamon County states attorney for perjury related to his testimony before the Illinois House impeachment panel. He is also the subject of a Senate ethics panel probe.
