(Chicago, IL) — Illinois governor candidate J.B. Pritzker is accused of taking part in a scheme to defraud Cook County taxpayers. The billionaire responded yesterday to a county inspector general report that shows he improperly received more than 330-thousand-dollars in property tax breaks and refunds on one of his mansions in Chicago’s Gold Coast.
Pritzker received the refunds after his wife asked a contractor to remove the mansion’s toilets. The home was then deemed uninhabitable and reassessed at a lower value.
