Cook County Democratic Chairman Toni Preckwinkle said Friday she would move to strip Ald. Edward Burke (14th) of his role as chairman of judicial slate making in the wake of what she called “profoundly troubling” allegations about Burke’s political interference at O’Hare Airport.

And if she’s elected mayor of Chicago, Police Supt. Eddie Johnson will be looking for a new job or living off his police pension.
