Gun-grabbing Chicago Democrat arrested on corruption charges; feds find 23 guns in his offices

When the FBI raided the offices of Democratic Chicago Alderman Ed Burke, a strong proponent of gun control, they confiscated nearly two dozen guns.

Here's what we know

Burke is facing federal corruption charges and recently was subject to FBI raids of both his ward office and his office in Chicago's City Hall. He is charged with attempted extortion. Burke allegedly attempted to withhold permits from a company unless they agreed to retain his property tax law firm, Klafter & Burke. Burke has insisted that he is innocent. He was released on a $10,000 unsecured bond, the Chicago Tribune reported.

During the sting of one of his offices, federal agents confiscated 23 firearms. It is unclear which office the guns were stored in which office at the time of the raid, but Chicago's WMMB-TV reported that at least some of the guns were on display at one point in City Hall.

Burke had been such a strong advocate for gun control that he had voted to outlaw cell phone cases shaped like guns.

I was wondering what that had to do with anything 

It sounds like his affiliation with Trump is stronger than his affiliation to the Democratic party, why omit the fact.  

He saved Trump 14 Million in property taxes and the raid of his office was the same day as Cohens guilty plea

that service was free, you need more help than my hobby psychology can provide. 

 

So .. criminals can't have day jobs? I am sure Oberst Mueller is well aware of whatever dealings occurred, I will wait with bated breath to see the plea deal made with this fine upstanding alderman and the special investigative team to roll over on Trump

How does this story show his ties were stronger to Trump than the Democrat party?  Considering he is being charged with extortion from acts in 2017 and 2018, I don't think he was President Trump's Chicago property tax lawyer at that time.
