Report: Prosecutor Seek Tapes Involving Burris

A published report indicates the prosecutor investigating Roland Burris' testimony before an Illinois House impeachment panel is asking federal authorities for any recordings involving the senator.

The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting in Friday's editions that federal prosecutors are considering the request from Sangamon County State's Attorney John Schmidt.

Schmidt is focused on conversations between Burris and Robert Blagojevich, who chaired former Gov. Rod Blagojevich's campaign fund.

Burris' admission that he had more contact with Blagojevich advisers about the Senate seat than he first described prompted Schmidt's investigation.

Meanwhile, Schmidt has questioned House Majority Leader Barbara Flynn Currie , Rep. Jim Durkin and Rep. Jil Tracy concerning Burris' appearance before the impeachment panel. Currie said she had nothing to offer.
