Federal authorities have executed search warrants at both the City Hall and ward offices of a powerful Chicago alderman.
Alderman Ed Burke is the chair of the Chicago City Council’s Finance Committee. Agents entered the offices Thursday morning, ordered everyone to leave, and covered the doors and windows with brown paper so no one could see inside. There’s been no word on what the agents are looking for.
Burke has served on the City Council for nearly 50 years and is married to Illinois Supreme Court Justice Anne Burke
