Publisher of the New Orleans "Times-Democrat", Burke was reelected. A reform movement within his party ousted him from office in 1888. In 1889 he was indicted for embezzlement of state bonds amounting to over $1 million. He never stood trial, escaping to Honduras where he lived until the age of 88.
