Brother of Ald. Ed Burke - Rep. Dan Burke’s scholarship records subpoenaed - CORRUPTION?


PHOTO: Legislative tuition waiver records for state Rep. Dan Burke (D-Chicago), pictured here in 2011, have been subpoenaed by a federal grand jury in Chicago that is leading a criminal investigation into abuses within the scandal-tainted legislative scholarship program. The subpoena, disclosed by the Illinois House clerk's office Wednesday, was issued in March.

SPRINGFIELD, IL — College tuition waivers awarded by a member of one of Chicago’s best-known political clans are under criminal investigation by a federal grand jury probing possible abuses in the state’s soon-to-be-dismantled legislative scholarship program.

The grand jury in Chicago subpoenaed State Rep. Dan Burke (D-Chicago), brother of Ald. Ed Burke (14th) and brother-in-law to Supreme Court Justice Anne Burke, making the veteran House Democrat at least the third known current or former lawmaker whose waivers are being probed by the feds.

The March 21 subpoena, released by the Illinois House in response to an open-records request by the Chicago Sun-Times, seeks “all information” about “Representative Daniel J. Burke’s procedures for the establishment, awarding and operation of the Illinois General Assembly Scholarship.”

The federal government’s request to Burke also seeks records “pertaining to receipt of any funds or gift in connection with the award of the scholarship, including the identity of any person/entity giving any funds or gift, the amount or gift received, and the date received.”

Ed Burke has never been touched by scandal. he has never testified against anyone as a informant. He has been an ardent supporter of police. It is not like we have a lot of friends these days. He is a good man and his wife Anne is a great jurist. Now go take your prozac and lie down

Burke is the only corrupt asshole the Feds could find who has been abusing this free ride to connected whores. This free handout to the selected few has been going on for YEARS. Probaly almost every politician down in Springfield has been handing out free rides instead of giving them to qualified needy students. Burke is only the tip of the iceberg. The biggest two fucking ratz are Madigan and Cullerton. Where the fuck have the Feds been?

It would be interesting to see how many up state reps abused this process to be compared with downstate. Democrates ruin something else.

Does Eddy Burke still have those two Niglets he adopted some time back? What the fuck was that about? No White needy kids he could have taken in.

What law firm is connected to certain very powerful Democrats and is a clearing house for Democratic donations?

Now that's something the Feds should look into.

Outlandish legal fee's/retainers paid by municipalities, school boards & other Gov. agencies with tax dollars.

Money washed and given to certain politicians in the form of donations.

Nice cover for political donations with tax dollars.

The reward is some State, county or federal job.

Pay to play!

RE: 1:00AM

I just paid my real estate tax bill, with the big increase caused by legislation, authored by Michael Madigan and passed withDan Burke's vote.

I would like to know if Michael Madigan's and Ed Burke's law clients had to pay the same increase or did they obtain a tax break on the back of us little guys!
