Jesse White Rejects Burris Appointment

Via CNN:

Secretary of the Senate Nancy Erickson has rejected Roland Burris' appointment to the Senate, an aide to the secretary told CNN.

Erickson rejected Burris' appointment because his certificate of appointment was missing the signature of Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White, the aide said Monday.

Rule 2 of the Standing Rules of the Senate states that the secretary of state must sign the certificate of election along with the governor.

White has declined to sign the certificate, siding with some Senate Democrats who say Burris should not be seated because of the cloud over Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who is accused of trying to sell President-elect Barack Obama's Senate seat.

What? WTF is this Raaaceeeeecyst Jesse White!!!111!!?!??

Obviously he must hang out with those other Raycists Harry Reid and DICK Durbin! How dare he reject the appointment the only African-American senator!
