The Trib is reporting that Roland Burris was caught on tape telling Rod Blagojevich's brother that he'd be will to present then-Governor Rod Blagojevich with a check, if appointed to a Senate seat.
That information was made available a day after a judge announced that a secretly-recorded phone conversation between Burris and Blago's brother would be used in the Blagojevich trial. When reached for comment about it yesterday, an attorney representing Burris said that he was glad the tape was being used as evidence, because he was sure that its contents, whatever they were, would help exonerate Bloagevich and Burris. He was wrong.
The Sun-Times provides a transcript of the phone call here.
