Ald. Burke has his fundraiser after federal raid

[VIDEO] I just have to say, the audacity. Just remember that it was just last week Ald. Burke's offices at city hall and in his 14th Ward were raided by federal authorities serving a search warrant. Tuesday evidently he's holding his annual fundraiser.

One of Burke's main niche in local politics is his influence in the election of Cook County Judges. As Derrick Blakely notes in his report Ald. Burke has millions in his campaign war chest. For an aldermanic campaign that's unimaginable, but consider that he probably isn't using even half of that in his Aldermanic campaign. Besides for the most part he often has no serious opposition if any at all. Thus he gets to use this cash for other purposes - especially personal or political purposes.

I just needed to share this, here's Monday's Burke round-up from CapFax
