The legal bill of indicted Chicago Alderman Edward Burke is piling up. A newly filed campaign finance report, shows Burke spent nearly 400-thousand-dollars in campaign funds in recent months on the legal defense team handling his public corruption case. Burke was indicted earlier this year on federal charges that accuse him of using his City Hall clout to extort private legal work from companies and individuals doing business with the city.
