Ald. Ed Burke is no longer a partner at Klafter & Burke

Friday, Aug 23, 2019

* Tribune

Embattled Ald. Edward Burke is no longer a partner at the downtown law firm where he did property tax appeal work for a long list of influential businesses and where federal authorities allege he tried to strong-arm people into becoming clients in exchange for help at City Hall, records show.

According to paperwork the Klafter & Burke law firm filed with Secretary of State Jesse White’s office in April, Burke dissociated from his partnership in the firm. That leaves Burke’s daughter, Jennifer, and two others as partners in the firm, according to the documents. […]

It was unclear from the paperwork whether Burke retains a relationship with the firm or if he profited from dissociating himself from the partnership. […]

Klafter & Burke filed the paperwork less than two weeks after Lori Lightfoot won the mayoral election on a platform that prominently featured her hammering the alderman as a vestige of the bad old days of Chicago politics where connected insiders get rich and the public suffers because of it. Lightfoot has called on Burke to resign as alderman.

    Liquidating assets to pay the fines and support his wife after he loses the corruption case and goes to jail?

    How the mighty have fallen.

    That might help explain a recent report that he has recused himself from voting on far fewer Council measures this year compared to last year. Not a partner at the firm, fewer conflicts. I know “retirement” is generally a dirty word for lawyers, but it might not be a bad idea…

    I’ll bet poor Ed finds a way to make ends meet.
