Default Ed Burke raid

Splitting this off the Trump thread. It appears there's speculation that this is about the city's workman's comp lawsuit. The money he has control of is about 100 mil, and it supposedly hasn't had any oversight since it was requested in 2012.

Thursday's federal search warrants also come a few months after a federal lawsuit was filed in Chicago challenging the legality of Burke's control of city workers' compensation and alleging that the South Side alderman commands a dozens-strong patronage army under the cover of his Finance Committee. The suit, filed by several former and injured city employees, claims that Burke falsifies his committee budget, understates his staff size and hides information from the public. According to an amended complaint filed this month, Burke allegedly hires unqualified employees who have "worked as a dog groomer, dog walker, hairstylist, waitress, and other jobs unrelated to the administration of Workers' Compensation."

Few guys I know in Bridgeport have gotten City jobs thru him.

Funny you should say that. His law firm helps people out with property tax rates, much like the one Madigan is with.

Shocked something like this would happen in our fine County and State!

Quote:
Ald. Edward Burke, the longest serving alderman in Chicago history, has been charged with attempted extortion for "corruptly soliciting business" for his private law firm, according to a federal complaint unsealed Thursday.

Burke was charged with one count of attempted extortion for conveying to company executives in 2017 that they'd get the permits if they signed on as clients at Burke's private property-tax law firm in Chicago, the 37-page complaint said.

If convicted of extortion, he faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Burke’s attorney requested a preliminary hearing for Jan. 18 at 2 p.m.

Burke was released on a $10,000 bond. Under the conditions of his release, he must not violate any laws, must give a DNA sample, not change his residence or phone number. He also cannot travel outside of northern Illinois with the exception of his home in Powera Lake, Wisc. Burke must also get rid of the 23 firearms he owns.

Not surprised yet surprised at the same time it's not related to the pension fund. Soliciting work is probably a close second though.

23 guns recovered in raids.
Prosecutors revealed during the 10-minute hearing that the FBI found 23 guns in the raids on Burke’s City Hall and ward offices in November.

I hope they were all Cook County Compliant. It would be a shame if any of them had a high capacity magazine. That says nothing of this:
" (430 ILCS 66/65)
Sec. 65. Prohibited areas.
(a) A licensee under this Act shall not knowingly carry a firearm on or into:
.
.
.
.
(5) Any building or portion of a building under the

control of a unit of local government."

Only in Illinois would we allow someone who can propose new taxes and vote on new taxes, own a Tax Law Firm....

I mean shit, it's not a conflict of interests at all. I wonder if anyone has ever tried to get these people disbarred for conflicts of interest.

IL is like a third world country with the corruption. IL's emperor also owns a law firm.

Yes, that was BS.
Like I said, his handlers are frigging idiots!!!!
Way too many trips to Fla.
Way too many stupid moves like that.
Way too many lies, exaggerations, and attention whore posts.

PRESIDENT Trump should have stayed in DC his entire 1st year in office.
Foreign trips & official visits in country when needed, but NEVER to any of his properties, and not a single damn round of golf!!!!
He has been a complete fool on doing things that look bad & liberal leech like.
He should have busted ass, with zero ammunition for the POS liberal leeches to use against him!!!!

I was referring to all the liberal leeches whining that PRESIDENT Trump would profit a few grand every time foreign dignitaries used one of his hotels, so that's why he's unqualified to be President!!!

A day after he was*charged with attempted extortion, Chicago Alderman Ed Burke reassured his supporters he is running for re-election.

While his opponents and some mayoral candidates are calling for the longtime alderman to resign, Burke refuses and will seek yet another term.

So when they go after a high profile guy like this, how many have been acquitted???
Ryan, nope.
blago, nope.
jesse jr, nope.
jesse jr wife, nope.
mel reynolds, nope.
verdolyak, nope.
rostinkowski, nope.

I'm sure some have, but they pretty much don't pull the trigger until they have you by the balls!!!!
I would not be surprised one bit if he was elected.
The people that support his kind are really that stupid.
Like the guy from Detroit & DC, IIRC both re-elected after being in prison for all kinds of crimes!!!
Doing crack on video comes to mind!!!
