U.S. Sen. Roland Burris (D-IL) is on the defensive after his latest affidavit to the state House impeachment committee became public.

He contends his statements were consistent despite three accounts of his contact with aides to former Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

Tony Arnold reports for Chicago Public Radio.
