Office of powerful Chicago alderman--who has been in office 49 years-- raided a second time

Term limits, anyone?

Chicago alderman Ed Burke (14th) has been in office since 1969. His predecessor was his father.

This is democracy?

From WGN-TV:
The FBI raided powerful Chicago Ald. Ed Burke’s City Hall office for the second time in two weeks.

The FBI’s Chicago office told WGN News it does not comment on anything it may or may not be investigating. In the past, the alderman has said that he’s cooperated with investigations in the past, will cooperate with this one and is confident no wrongdoing will be found.

Two weeks ago, federal agents raided Burke's office, who is the longest serving alderman.

After the raid began, federal agents put brown paper over officer windows to conceal their work. As the agents executed their warrant, no one was allowed in or out of his third floor City Hall Office.
