Rich Lenkov Discusses Alderman Burke’s Extortion Charge on Steve Cochran Show

Rich Lenkov was featured on WGN’s Steve Cochran show this morning discussing the recent charge against Alderman Ed Burke. Burke is charged with attempted extortion and appeared in federal court on Thursday.

Rich stated that the wire-taps are a key element in the government’s case and discussed the prosecution’s decision to use a complaint instead of an indictment. Rich also covered Burke’s body language in court, how the case affects Toni Preckwinkle’s mayoral campaign, as well as Burke’s wife, Illinois Supreme Court Justice Anne Burke.

He noted that while the prosecution’s case is strong, the investigation is ongoing and there is much more to come.
