Sen. Roland W. Burris (D-Ill.) was rebuked Friday by the Senate Ethics Committee, which issued a "public letter of qualified admonition" for his actions in connection with his appointment by disgraced former Illinois Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich. In the letter, the panel told Burris it had concluded that his "actions reflected unfavorably on the Senate." Questions had arisen over whether Burris had been truthful about his contacts with Blagojevich associates before his appointment. "The committee found that you should have known that you were providing incorrect, inconsistent, misleading or incomplete information to the public, the Senate and those conducting legitimate inquiries into your appointment to the Senate," the letter said.
