Newly released FBI tapes suggest that Burris only days from being sworn in spoke with the Governors brother about how to seal the deal.

Burris said he would “personally do something” to help the governor’s campaign.

“I know I could give him a check,” Burris was quoted as saying in a Nov. 13 phone conversation with Rob Blagojevich, the governor’s brother.

“Anything I give would be out of my personal funds,” Burris said, while stating his wish to fill President Obama’s vacated U.S. Senate seat.

Burris even went to far as to say he could contribute under a different name, which is a clear violation. But now, Burris maintains his innocence.

Since Burris lied under oath I can easily see his removal from the Senate.
