City Council investigated for possible workers' comp fraud

A committee run by City Hall's most powerful alderman, Ed Burke, is now being investigating by the U.S. attorney's office.

A federal grand jury sent subpoenas to the city's finance committee on August 3. The committee runs the city's workers' compensation program.

The Duty Disability Program paid out millions of dollars to disabled workers last year.

Alderman Burke says he is cooperating 100 percent with the investigation.
