Fired PWC Police Officer Abused Police Data Bases for Political Purposes

Prince William County Republicans have discovered that former Prince William PD Lt. William “Liam” Burke, who was arrested for illegal breach of personal information, made large donations to the Prince William Democratic Committee. Burke also made smaller donations to Democratic candidates.

“Prior to his removal, Mr. Burke moonlighted as an active Democratic political operative in the county,” said Prince William Republican Committee Chairman Bill Card, who contacted Bristow Beat about the matter. 

Burke was arrested on five counts of computer invasion, a crime punishable by up to one year in prison. He was removed from the police department in spring as his alleged crimes were being investigated.
