Rep. Laura Marie Burke was San Franciso's represntative in Congress and was widely beloved in the region for her numerous infrastructure initiatives, winning every election since Jake Collins vacated the seat to run in the Senate.

Appearances in CoD:
She first appears in V12C3, where tragedy struck her family when her son, Merritt, attempted to rekindle his ancestors' nineteenth century vigilante group, the Committee of Vigilance, and murdered ex-con, Vernon Frist.
She then appears in V15C6, to be part of the plan in getting Blaise to kill the Puppet Master and tells Alan Song that Blaise will "come around eventually". It is unknown as to what other plans she has.
In V16C3, Burke is seen touring the SCT's prison underneath Alcatraz alongside Seth Holland. She is revealed to be in charge of biochemical research on the occupants of the prison, in exchange for U.S. government funding for the SCT. Having given Dr. Selene Mensra a second chance, they are testing a new drug called N-14, or "Daydream", which represses feelings of bloodlust and terror. The goal appears to be greater rehabilitation at prisons all over the world.
