Franks’ Host Committee Co-Chairman’s Criminal Trial Delayed Until Next Year

The Chicago Tribune reports that Chicago Alderman Ed Burke’s trial will not be held until 2021.

What’s the relevance to McHenry County?

Burke has been a marque name on fellow Democrat Jack Franks’ fundraising invitations and a contributor for years.

Jack Franks didn’t have Mike Madigan as a headliner on his 2016 Chicago fundraiser, but Ed Burke was still featured.
Mike Madigan is missing from this 2016 Jack Franks’ Chicago fundraising invitation, but Ed Burke’s name was right on top.
Jack Frank’s invitation to this 2014 fundraiser has Ed Burke second.
In 2019, Ed Burke’s name disappeared from Jack Franks’ invitation.

Other public officials have given contributions from those indicted to charity.

Looking through Jack Franks’ campaign expenses since Ed Burke was indicted shows no charitble contributions.
