Burris Brushes Off Blagojevich Indictment News

A spokesman for Roland Burris says the embattled senator is focused on his work in the Senate, not the indictment filed against the man who appointed him.

Burris spokesman Jim O'Connor said on Thursday that Burris was not focusing on the 19-count indictment filed against former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and others.

O'Connor says Burris is participating in dozens of budget votes in the Senate and won't be commenting on the indictment.

Earlier in the day, Burris told reporters with The Hill newspaper who caught him coming off the floor from a vote that Blagojevich's indictment "has nothing to do with me."

Burris says the governor has his own problems and "the law will take its course."
