Sec. of State : I cannot co-sign Blago document

CHICAGO Any appointment made by the governor to the seat left vacant by Pres-Elect Barack Obama would have to be co-signed by White.

Statement from Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White

As I have previously stated publicly, I cannot co-sign a document that certifies any appointment by Rod Blagojevich for the vacant United State Senate seat from Illiois.

Although I have respect for former Attorney General Roland Burris, because of the current cloud of controversy surrounding the Governor, I cannot accept the document.
