Illinois Democratic gubernatorial candidate J.B. Pritzker’s removal of toilets from a Chicago mansion that resulted in more than $330,000 in property tax breaks were part of a “scheme to defraud,” according to a confidential government report obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times.
The Sun-Times reported Monday that, in his report, Cook County Inspector General (IG) Patrick Blanchard recommended the county recover the money from Pritzker.
Blanchard wrote that family members and colleagues of Pritzker’s made “false representations” to a county assessor, including a claim from Pritzker’s wife that the Chicago mansion adjacent to a property owned by Pritzker was uninhabitable. According to an October 2015 email obtained by Blanchard, Pritzker’s wife claimed the mansion was unlivable and called for its toilets to be removed prior to a property tax reassessment. .
