CHICAGO (FOX 32 NEWS) - The offices of longtime Ald. Ed Burke were raided by federal agents Thursday afternoon, two weeks after raids at his ward and City Hall offices, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
The focus of the investigation remains unclear.
Burke, who presides over the 14th Ward and has been in office for 49 years, denied wrongdoing after the raid last month.
"I’ve been under investigation in the past. Nothing has ever come of it, and I’ve always cooperated. And I’ll cooperate with whatever this investigation is," Burke told FOX 32 News.
No arrests were made or were imminent. Officials have not yet commented on the nature of the raids or what they're seeking. It's unclear whether Burke or someone else in his organization is the target of the investigation.
The 74-year-old Democrat chairs the City Council's finance committee and is the longest-serving alderman in Chicago history.
