Nepotism Alive and Well

  • Could the daughter of one Democratic political powerhouse replace another as Illinois attorney general?

    It’ll happen if the City Council’s elder statesman has his way.

    Cook County Democratic Chairman Joe Berrios said he got a courtesy call over the weekend from Ald. Edward Burke (14th) to let him know that Burke’s daughter would be circulating nominating petitions to run for attorney general.

    Berrios initially identified the daughter as Jennifer Burke. Neither Jennifer Burke nor her father could be reached for comment. They work together at the law firm of Klafter and Burke.
Burle must have seen what a great job Lisa did covering up and failing to investigate all of her dad's crimes, so Burke decided he's gotta get a piece of that covering up his assorted legal missteps as outlined in Cooley's book "When Corruption Was King."

Not a cop but what do we tell our kids in Chicago? Go to school, obtain a degree, keep your reputation clean, background clean, work hard and for what? If you do not have the correct last name or clout, you will never make a decent salary. Burke has two daughters. One is a lawyer in his tax rebate firm. The other used to be a "supervisor" in the city Law Department at 99k, then got a seat at the Pollution Control Board for 117k plus pension. When does this bullshit end? I am not a socialist but what the fuck man. There are other people who can perform these gigs. 100k should be department head level gig with you being in charge of many people. Not one person sending emails from a desk and making 4 trips to Starbucks a day. Will we ever get a proper audit?

What a great non fiction book exposing city hall and the outfit, how is it that the FBI and US Attorney's office were unable to charge Burke with a crime is beyond belief his last name ends with a vowel too...

Thank goodness the Chicago Way is still in play. If she runs no doubt you fool will vote her in. You seem to want more of the same treatment from your politicians, keep voting Democratic. But please if you vote that way just STFU about all the problems in the city and all the new classes of taxes they will dream up.

The same old game, Lisa did nothing to uncover anything unless it was going after "law and order" the beleaguered Chicago police officer and using her office to pontificate about how bad the police are and how good the criminals were! Keep talking about enforcement of Barry's consent decree and keep bolstering the police haters the head who said police will "squeal" on each other right Sharon? Hey Sharon what happened between you and uber rich ariel investment guru john rogers? Just axin?

The citizens are getting the police department they asked for by electing pandering politicians who will do anything to stay in power, life is obviously cheap to them, massive carnage citywide,and they enjoy wine and cheese laughing like hyenas, while many are maimed, mothers and fathers burying their children as the elected and dishonest media establishment goes after the hard working police officers!

Police work is not television, it is dirty,gritty, stressful work, watch a lion tamer attempting to train a beast while protecting themselves, police work is like that constantly in this city! Police are disparaged, the city and media are giving away millions to criminals and their families and spinning the false narrative "police are bad!"

Saying all that to say this how many criminal gang killing machine enterprises has Lisa went after? How many criminals prosecuted? That office should be used to put away the bad felons but the "community" would oppose that as the narrative would expose what type of people are causing the massive carnage, it is not racism when it is realism correct? God bless the police!

So Lisa doesn't run
Burkes kid runs and wins Lisa's old job on the same ballot as mom who is retained as a Supreme Court Justice (IL)
"Justice" Burke resigns and new Governor JB appoints little Lisa to the IL Supreme Court
Now if they can just find something for Rahm's kid.....maybe Drug Czar?
What a great state!

Funny how Burke never sued Cooley for libel. Must be true then. SCC, you guys should print excerpts from "when corruption was king" to enlighten those who may not have seen it. It's also funny how Burke and his wife the "honorable" justice of the Il. supreme court didn't wind up in the shithouse along with the rest of the crooked bastards from "Gambat" Maybe Valukas didn't want to hurt his future prospects, eh? Oh well, another letter writing campaign to Sessions is in order , for all the good it'll do.

All as anyone with a room temperature IQ need to have done is look at all the investigations that died at obama's "dept of just-us" in DC to realize what an absolutel criminal gem it would be to have your very own criminal as the attorney general.

Smaller potatoes than the outright theft and extortion that went on at the national level, but still a good chunk of change here and the stroke to have the powerful come to you for favors in killing investigations into them/theirs.

That's pow-wah baby. Come kiss my ring and talk nice to me.

You have now been served fair notice. You can do something about it. Nip it in the bud. Do NOT vote for more nepotism. If she is elected you have no one to blame but yourself.

The same Burke that is demanding special attentions be done at his home from the 008th district officers but to be kept off the air (via PDT only) so that it does not draw attention to the special treatment.

Another good read is American Pharaoh. It js about the Daley the First. It chronicals his rise to power and destruction of his political enemies. One such enemy is Benjamin Adamowski. Former state rep and State's Atty. Daley beat him for mayor in 1955. their rivalry continued for quite some time. Adamowski actually switched to Republican to go at Daley again. He was quite the thorn in the Daley Machine.

Vote independent. Be careful some of the people who run are supported anonymously by the Burkes and Madigan's to continue their dirty games.
Vote for a neighborhood person new to the political game. If they are really a member of the neighborhood you would have heard of them.

Your comment shows your lack of knowledge of what has happened in some previous elections. Madigan not only controls Illinois government, he has a lot of cash to spread around and he spreads it around to downstate legislators in an attempt to influence voting patterns. This has happened on many occasions and could very well happen in this upcoming election. Take nothing for granted in this state. If you have ever traveled Illinois you would realize how poor much of the state is.

I've read Bob Cooley's book over and again. Even met him at a book signing in Lincoln Park. If you haven't read it yet, please do so. Not only is it full of good stories, but it's also an eyebrow-raising look into the corruption and impropriety by people in office.
