Eighteen Chicago cops who were caught on video lounging inside a burglarized congressman’s campaign office as looters tore up the city following George Floyd’s death have been disciplined, department officials said.

Seventeen of the officers were suspended, while one was given a reprimand for their actions on June 1 inside Rep. Bobby Rush’s campaign office, according to a Chicago police department spokeswoman.

“The members have been notified of the results of the investigation,” spokeswoman Sally Brown confirmed to The Post. “Each member may elect to challenge the decisions based on their collective bargaining agreements.”

Video of the officers shows them making popcorn, guzzling coffee and even sleeping on a couch inside Rush’s office on June 1 — just over 24 hours after civil unrest rocked the city following Floyd’s police-custody killing on May 25 in Minneapolis, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The idling cops were there for up to five hours, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot told reporters during a press conference in June.
