Jesse White, IL Secretary of State has certified Burris

Ok, now seat Burris.

Following a decision by the Illinois Supreme Court, Jesse White, the Illinois secretary of state, has certified Roland Burris' appointment to the Senate, removing a major roadblock blocking Burris' ascension to the body.

According to his office, White has signed a certificate saying that Roland Burris' appointment document is "true and accurate."

The move came just hours after Illinois' top state court ruled that White's approval was not necessary for a valid appointment to the Senate for Burris by Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

What is the hold up now? Does Reid and Durbin now want to string this out and wait for the IL Senate to impeach Blago? That could take up to February. What is the excuse NOW?

Seat Roland Burris and let the circus leave D.C.
