    CHICAGO -- Two Republican leaders in the Illinois House are expected to discuss their call for an investigation of U.S. Sen. Roland Burris for perjury.

    Jim Durkin and Tom Cross plan a news conference Sunday afternoon.

    They want to ask for an outside investigation into whether Burris perjured himself before a House committee investigating former Gov. Rod Blagojevich's impeachment.

    Rep. Jim Durkin, the impeachment committee's ranking Republican, and House Republican Leader Tom Cross said Burris had every opportunity to reveal information about his contacts with the former governor's brother-in-law about possible campaign donations, but waited weeks to submit the information rather than divulging the details during testimony under oath.

    "Mr. Burris had every opportunity in the world to fully describe his relationship with the governor and the circumstances of his appointment, so I don't buy it," Durkin said.

    It's a completely contradictory statement," Cross told FOX News. "Do I think he committed perjury? Yes."

    Jillian would be a she but that's the gist of it. Hear no evil speak no evil see no evil of the Obama man or any of his more notorious cohorts in Chicagoland where the Ghost of Richard Daley lingers on and the Dead vote democrat whatever their political affiliation in life.

    Im not expecting anything to come of this because the Republicans dont have the power to investigate anything.

    Yup, country going down the tubes as we try to recover from the economic woes from the Bush year and the GOP wants to investigate a Senator who forgot something.

    Maybe they should begin asking themselves why they lost so badly in November. Has the American public finally began to realize the "witch hunts" are wasting tax payers money? The new GOP tactic is to take their ball and walk away. Not one GOP Congressman voted for the Stimulous. Three GOP Senators crossed the line.

    If the US economy recovers, as it surely will, the GOP is going to look even sillier than they do now. The economy will begin a slow recovery in the 4th Quarter of 2009. The Stimulous Bill will get the credit while in reality, the whole mess is cyclical.

    The Great Obstructionist Party loses again.
