Last week, an independent Inspector General report detailed JB Pritzker’s scheme to defraud Illinois taxpayers. After filing fraudulent affidavits to the Cook County Assessor’s office, Pritzker received a $330,000 tax break on his home, forcing Illinois taxpayers to pay the price of his fraudulent behavior. Pritzker’s potential criminal activities have now been referred to the special prosecutions unit of the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office.
