The [Friday] Papers

"The City Council's most powerful alderman will sit out the legislative debate on Mayor Rahm Emanuel's plan to give movie mogul George Lucas free lakefront land to build an interactive museum to avoid a conflict posed by a threatened court challenge," the Sun-Times reports.

"Ald. Edward Burke (14th), chairman of the City Council's Finance Committee, is the husband of Illinois Supreme Court Justice Anne Burke.

"If Friends of the Park follows through on its threat to file a lawsuit blocking the project, the appeal could go all the way to the state Supreme Court."


Might have been worth nothing that Burke didn't recuse himself when it came to the ill-fated proposal to move the Chicago Children's Museum into Grant Park.


Also, how does Burke explain not recusing himself from all council business?
