IL Supreme Court states Secretary of State, Jesse White's signature is not required by law. So, this means that it is back to the senate and Leader Harry Reid.
The Illinois Supreme Court this afternoon denied a writ of mandamus sought by Roland Burris to order Secretary of State Jesse White to affix his signature to Burris' U.S. Senate paperwork. The court said there is nothing in state law that requires White’s signature on the appointment document.
