Justice Stephen Breyer Won’t Alter Special U.S. Senate Election in Illinois

On September 20, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer denied the request by U.S. Senator Roland Burris to alter the special election for U.S. Senate in Illinois.  The U.S. District Court Judge had earlier ruled that the special election ballot for the two-month term should list only the same candidates who are running for the regular term.  Burris, the incumbent U.S. Senator, wanted to either run in the special election, or block the special election.

Here is Justice Breyer’s one-page order.  The U.S. Supreme Court has not determined whether to grant cert in the Burris appeal.  Today’s action is merely a denial of injunctive relief.  Thanks to Thomas Jones for this news.

  1. The MORON Burris failed to act IMMEDIATELY after taking office.

    The turtle courts do NOT like last second stuff regarding elections — i.e. potential TOTAL chaos in the election process.

    Are the MORONS in the IL legislature paying any attention regarding the filling of vacancies in ALL public offices in IL ????
