Sen. Roland Burris of Illinois–famed for his appointment by disgraced former Gov. Rod Blagojevich–is hearing voices. Sen. Burris, who had announced he would not stand for election, says he might run after all. Reports ABC News:
Illinois Sen. Roland Burris announced last month that he would not run to retain his Senate seat next year, but in his first television interview since making that decision, Burris told ABC News he could change his mind.
“You never say never,” Burris told ABC News in a “Subway Series” interview for the ABC News program “Top Line.” The “Subway Series,” which debuts on Monday, features interviews with senators and other political leaders on board the Capitol Hill subway.
“What I’m still hearing,” Burris said, is “people from all over the country and they are saying, ‘Don’t give up that seat.'”
He thinks the voices come from real people. I suspect they are in his mind. Time for a visit to a mental health professional?
