Federal grand jury subpoenas Ald. Ed Burke's Finance Committee records

A federal grand jury has demanded that a City Council committee led by a powerful alderman turn over records related to a program that last year alone paid out $115 million to disabled city workers, according to documents obtained by the Tribune.

Prosecutors sent subpoenas to the Finance Committee long led by Ald. Edward Burke, 14th. The Aug. 3 request asks for access to a host of records related to the "duty disability" program.

The subpoenas were issued about one week after city Inspector General Joseph Ferguson, a former federal prosecutor, announced that Burke's committee had rebuffed his attempts to obtain many of the same records.

If the Feds have their eye on Eddie Burke then why aren't they also looking at Fat Ass Daley. I am sure Daley let it be known to his Slave in the White House that Eddie Burke would be a great catch for the Feds instead of him. All of these corrupt fucking political bastards should be on a chain gang. Madigan and Cullerton should be leading this bunch of snakes.

All I know is what I saw.
It took three semis from the shredding company three days at the old medical section right. before the feds served them.
And: whom approves any expenditures the city gets? And: How many stops did those trucks make and where? And: Who was working that day and what did they "remember" what they shredded? Unless the were undocumented and the company owner's are in Maui?


Inquiring minds need to know?

Burke should be fed through that shredder. Arrogant, corrupt, control freak. He bans everything he and his holier than thou wife don't like. That's what you get when white trash have money.

Gotta save room in that cell for Quinn, he's next.

This is taking too long said...

I was IOD for five years seven operations. and Burkee and ye medical section/pension board took 2 years salary three years seniority and pension during my LOA ? I couldn't lose but the FOP could! My private lawyer ran out of money trying to subpoena records? They seem to have disappeared after three semis of the shredder company spent a week parked in front of the old medical section taking documents for a one way trip to the incinerator.

The G wasn't happy no disability no insurance or wages or holidays Arbeit no taxes.

But they did make sure the thieves and traitors had to put it in the contract. so they can't do it to any one else and I'll get 40% of my pension and 20% of my social security (80% to LINK AND UNDOCUMENTED WORKERS) My Medicare will become Obamocare in 2013 when the City "OPTS OUT" of COBRA.

RAMKNEE AND CRYAN WILL AXE UP THAT.
Their. $$ is OFFSHORE so why should they care?

Our loving Gov. Queen. will reform pensions? As long as he reforms the tax money into his and his friends pockets! If any of it falls off it will be reformed to the pension boards pockets who will reinvest what falls out of their pockets?

Burkee will tell the G to lick it off and appeal to the ILLINOIS SUPREME COURT COURT so he can have a free lunch with his wife.If he can get a.nanny for his imported baby?

How much of an "I" bond goes into.our benefits and pension?
How much does a plea bargain come out of our benefits and pensions?

How much of the civilian parking ticket company money goes into our. benefits and pensions?

How much money will go to them with the red light company's and speeding camera company's

If these bastards would jab tried just a little bit harder to get the Olympics and the G8 they could have bankrupt Chicago in less than a week!!!

Burke has been stealing millions for years from city taxpayers. He belongs in jail with numerous other criminal Democrat extortionist like Madigan and Cullerton. Hope the Feds now begin to put these Whores in prison where they belong.

Hopefully they will go right up the feeding chain and get Madigan.

Illinois needs this like a guy who has eaten some bad food and needs an enema to clean him out.

The whole state needs to be cleaned out of these thieves!

Including the cities and counties.

Romney slams Obama in tough speech

"Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago," Romney said while campaigning in Ohio.

A lot of us don't want him back here either - maybe a nice cell in some Federal prison for life.

Sounds like ENRON all over again but with our typical politicians. A corrupt politician here in Illinois?! nothing to see here move along

This is just ALL Smoke and Mirrors to make it look like the Obama In-Justice Department is getting tough with corruption in obamas home town, when in fact he, along with all the rest of these Chicagoland Democommunist Politicians, are the combined machine and source of all this corruption. Nothing will really happen. It's just a shell game. Vote Straight Republican and PRAY.

They are, together, comprising an organized Crime Family, just like the Drug Cartels, and theMafia, so why havent the Feds done a fuckin thing about it for decades? I hope when Romney&Ryan get in, they fire EVERY corrupt and incompetent Fed, and then send a Thousand new, non-corrupt Feds to Chicago, to tear the current Chicago Crime Family to shreds.

Burke has been a politically connected Klunt all of his life. His Old Man was AlderWhore for years in his same ward. He has had only the best all of his charmed life. He has become a multi-millionaire on the backs of Chicago taxpayers. This asshole belongs in a Federal prison. But only call him Mr. Chairman anytime you talk to his majesty. Fucking POS!

Many IOD employees of the City got screwed by Ald. Burke's COVENTRY...Now the truth may surface.
