[snip] The report by Cook County Inspector General Patrick Blanchard concluded that Pritzker was involved in a scheme that included "obtaining money by means of false representations and, in executing the scheme, the responsible parties caused checks to be issued by the Cook County Treasurer and delivered by U.S. Mail according to the direction thereon."
[snip] Richard Hagar, senior residential appraiser with the Appraisal Institute and an expert witness in a number of appraisal lawsuits, says the report outlines a classic case of fraud.
I read about this and up until he surreptitiously put a toilet back in, post-appraisal, I’d have argued he did nothing wrong.
“says the report outlines a classic case of fraud. ..”
It is but also is a drop in the bucket compared to the overall corruption in Chumpcago/ Cook County. Right now it looks like the criminal Prickster will be the next governor.
FYI, Pritzker owns the Hyatt hotel chain.
I would suspect pritzker is unflappable.
Conservatives and more than happy to live under than same laws and taxes they want for everyone else.
Liberals/progressives expect to exempted from the same laws and taxes they want for everyone else.
Democrats are LAW-LESS because Republicans are BALL-LESS!!
