Lisa Madigan sues to block Burge pension

By Ryan Haggerty

Disgraced former Chicago police Cmdr. Jon Burge’s pension is once again in jeopardy, just days after the city’s police pension board allowed him to continue to collect the $3,039 a month in spite of his criminal conviction.

The board’s controversial decision led Attorney General Lisa Madigan to sue Monday to block Burge from pocketing further pension payments, saying

“the public should never have to pay for the retirement of a corrupt public official.”
