Quinn: Burris admonishment ‘speaks for itself


Governor Pat Quinn says the public admonishment of U.S. Sen. Roland Burris by the Senate Ethics Committee "speaks for itself.''

Quinn on Friday said he had nothing to add to it.

The governor says he intends to work with Burris through the end of his term in 2011, especially to help veterans and their families.

Burris isn't running for a full term after being appointed by disgraced former Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

The Ethics Committee didn't recommend that Burris be punished, but it admonished him for making "inconsistent, misleading or incomplete'' statements about the circumstances surrounding his appointment.
