Burris brings in the big guns

February 25, 2009

The news broke yesterday that Burris won't resign, but the buried story here is that Burris has the support of longtime political consultant Delmarie Cobb. She was hired by Burris to help spin damage control. Cobb worked long and hard for Hillary in the primary and was a major story at the DNC when she was allegedly called an "Uncle Tom" by then-State Senate President Emil Jones. Our City Room editor Sam Hudzik tracked her down yesterday and recorded this interview. He used a couple clips for the newscasts yesterday but I begged him to give us the raw interview: link
