Who is Alderman Burke?

Flashback 1980: Alderman Ed Burke, Rally for Cook County States Attorney: Chicago Mob Associate Michael J. Corbitt Stands in Front Row

P.S. Tribune's Clout St, "Council committee OKs watchdog on a leash" :
Asked if he's concerned voters will regard the proposal as a paper tiger, Ald. Edward Burke, 14th, said his constituents aren't focused on the issue.

"I wasn't aware there was any groundswell," Burke said after the vote. "I haven't heard from any of my voters about it, but I think it is what it is. Certain people will never be satisfied. I think this is a reasonable approach to an issue that needs to get 26 votes and this will get 26 votes."
