Democratic Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker, his wife and his brother-in-law are under federal criminal investigation for a dubious residential property tax appeal that dogged him during his gubernatorial campaign last year, WBEZ has learned.

A law-enforcement source familiar with the investigation confirmed to WBEZ that the probe, which has not been revealed publicly until now, began last October and remains active. There are no signs that criminal charges are imminent.

WBEZ has also confirmed that Illinois First Lady MK Pritzkers personal assistant who was involved in the property tax appeal, Christine Lovely, is being represented by one of Chicagos most high-powered lawyers. Her attorney, Reid Schar, is a former federal prosecutor who helped convict ex-Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich on corruption charges.

The developments demonstrate that the billionaire governor and his wife may face a serious legal threat arising from their controversial pursuit of a property tax break on a 126-year-old mansion they purchased next to their Gold Coast home.

Charge him.  Continue the "fine" Illinois tradition of indicted and jailed Dem Governors.

An Illinois Governor who is crooked?

The list of crooked Illinois governors is long and illustrious..........well maybe not illustrious but this guy would be a worthy addition to any prison roster.

The TV commercial says that Pritzker is the "porcelain prince of property tax avoidance" He took all the toilets out of the house to save on taxes

I know the names of three prominent real estate tax attorneys that he might feel comfortable with because they are all democrats and all are in positions of power in government in Illinois.

As an added plus, only one of them is currently under federal indictment.

 

Just two of them have been working under federal wiretaps, that we know of.

Missing Gov Rauner more and more.  He put his own money into the restoration of the Governor's Mansion in Springfield, this guy basically stole tax money to gild his private mansion.  It all goes back to Madigan.

I wasn't expecting the criminal investigation to start until after he had his first big public spat with Madigan. Progress! I guess?

I don't think the feds can be bothered to line up their timetable with the Illinois Trainwreck.

Thank you Kimmy Fox, your adapt handling has brought the feds in for another investigation. With just wee bit of luck JB can bunk with blago.

This was known way before the election. Travesty that it happens after he got elected. Problem is, Illinois and Chicago are not far from collapse. I doubt Rauner wanted to be in charge when that hits the fan. Democrats will own it.

and his scumbag status already well defined by the company he was keeping... on tape with the guy who shook down a children's hospital.

 

Maybe they will get to be cell mates.

He was asked at a press conference today about that and his reply was more or less a "meh".  

 

Hopefully they build a solid case.

My guess is nothing will happen. These kind seem to always get away with it. That is unless he has p***** off the powers that wanna be.

Rich people can’t be bothered with laws or doing what is morally right since he played the tax system. What I find funny is that if it would of been an average joe, the city probably would of threatened to have it condemned since it wasn’t habitable which is what he wanted to accomplish by removing the toilets.
