Update: Official walkback statement now out via ACE HQ and ChicagoTribune/WGN:

“Barring objections from Senate Republicans, we expect Senator-designee Burris to be sworn in and formally seated later this week,” said a joint statement from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin.

The Senate Democratic Leaders had told Burris last week that he needed to testify before the Illinois House impeachment committee about his relationship with Gov. Rod Blagojevich and submit a signature from Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White certifying his appointment by Blagojevich.

“We have spoken to Mr. Burris to let him know that he is now the Senator-designate from Illinois and as such, will be accorded all the rights and privileges of a Senator-elect,” said the joint statement.

Breaking now on FOX, (confirmed by Carl Cameron says Cavuto FWIW…)

“Burris certified by U.S. Senate Officials to Fill Vacant Seat…”

You know what we would say back in Brooklyn don’t you? That was mighty white of them…

Sorry but hell it was a witch hunt by the end and Reid had NO BUSINESS pulling this parliamentary CRXP, when

a. The US Senate, despite what some may suppose, does NOT have the right to question the appointment/election of a Senator that has been certified by the state under the requirements of the state’s constitution, beyond the general eligibility requirements

b. Frakin Harry better git his axx to work on Nevada’s foreclosure crisis or maybe go sit in the frakin meetings with Summers and Geithner and see WTH is going on and write a plan, you know show some LEADERSHIP on the real issues..

but where did wrong way reid lead us?? Bravely off into a FRAKIN DEAD END YET AGAIN..

And congratulations to Senator Burris who should have been seated two weeks ago and at the latest Friday after IL SC confirmed the SoS has ALREADY certified Burris via the entry into the state records…
