Oh Ed

  • Indicted Ald. Edward Burke (14th) had a series of so-called burner cellphones, at least one of which was bought by an underling who paid cash for the device months before the federal raid on Burke’s ward and City Hall offices, the Chicago Sun-Times has learned.

    Federal authorities only learned about that phone recently, sources familiar with the investigation said. Its existence raises the possibility that the alderman may have been alerted to, or was suspicious of, the investigation that led to the criminal case that was filed against him earlier this year.

    A court-approved FBI wiretap of Burke’s main cellphone recorded more than 62,000 calls the alderman made or received over several months, records have shown. That includes recordings that formed the basis of the Jan. 3 charge of attempted extortion against Burke for allegedly shaking down a Burger King franchise owner for legal business.
We're hearing rumors of an undocumented e-mail server being located in a closet at Burke's castle.

If so, he will be required to turn over all the emails, unlike a certain former Chicago harridan. Burke don't have no Clinton Teflon.

I wonder if the feds did know about those phones too?

You should expect any criminal to at least try using burner phones.

All politicians should be forced to wear body cameras with audio. Many have gone to prison for corruption which points out the need for them. The cameras are on the wrong people. They do not represent our interests, just their own scheming.

Shows how incompetent the us attorney John Lausch is. He is too interested covering for Rahm and doing photo ops with lying Lori. Another leak from democrats to protect burke. More and more it seems like this case will fall apart. But the goal of the Burke investigation was to take out Mendoza and Preckwinkle and get lori elected anyway. Mission accomplished.

How in the hell dose anyone have time to make 62,000 calls over a several month time frame. Plus how many on burner phones. Should become a spokesman for one of the cell phone people.

Do the math. Over a three month period (2160 total hours) 90 days divided by 62000 calls equals 688 calls per day. If each call lasts 1.5 minutes that is 17.2 hours per day on phone. Must have been lots of deals everyday. Just when did he find tome to attend any meetings, eat, sleep or anything a normal person does in the course of a day. What a deal maker this guy should be teaching an class on government entrepreneurship. Could be the worlds expert on tome management.

The Feds had our governor and an ex governor discussing appointing the current governor a position in the cabinet, and nothing happened to him aside from getting elected governor, and instructing people how to scam the property tax folks. I'm not holding my breath...

Every aldermen or anyone in official capacity who makes deals/contracts where taxpayers money are spent should be required to wear body camera and have said deal recorded......but this is Crook County so do as I say not as I do. Accountability, we just need to get everyone to focus on the "evil police". Don't look at us look at them.

Ed should have gone to his pal, Hillary Clinton, for advice on how to get rid of embarrassing e-mails, cell phones, and computers.

Think there was some obamaFone fraud ?

How many of those 61,000 calls went to Madigroin, J-Bey Pigster and the IL Supreme Court, when and for what.
That’s 61,000 counts of obstruction.
So many swamp dwellers dropped completely out of politics right before the Fed began their BonerSolis Burke sweeps.
Before the cat is let out of the bag, a plea deal just on the single BK Whopper bribe might be the easy way out, ask J-J Jr.
Keeping the trap shut like Blago...not so much.

A quick deal and sealing the court records can be expected to protect the rest of the players.
Hard to believe the Dorthief Brown investigation still hasn’t concluded, but if that what it takes to keep digging into uncovering all the other Cook County shenanigans, so be it.

The Lausch guy strikes again!! 7:39! Tinfoil hat time!

It doesn’t even make any sense, the idiocy you spew! You keep conspiracy theorists in business. I bet you have a collection of things to cook with that you’ve bought after watching infomercials too!

Holy man, what are you smoking??

Off Topic but Trump just granted ICE deportation rights through an executive order. Lightfoot immediately instructed Eddie for CPD to disregard this. My job as a sworn officer is to uphold the law and if it means offending the Liberals illegal agenda so be it. None of us should hesitate to assist our law enforcement partners. Our failure to do so is morally and legally wrong. FOP better get out ahead of this and force a just confrontation.

Lol. You've never worked the watch with some of the people I have. Call after call after call.

I’d laugh my ass off if the feds led Lightning Lightfoot and big Ed off in handcuffs for obstruction of justice for their coaching the illegals on how to hide.

Trump’s no dummy. There’s a reason behind putting the word out about the upcoming round up. We just have to wait and see (unless the 9th circuit or Castillo says he can’t).
