Dem's Multi-Million Dollar Tax Scheme EXPOSED

Democrat J.B. Pritzker, heavily favored as the next governor of Illinois, stands accused by seven congressmen of a tax scheme they say left ordinary citizens covering the "depreciation" of his $6 million Chicago mansion.

Conservative Tribune reports:

The “scheme to defraud” involved a devaluation of over $5 million due to Pritzker’s 2012 claim that the massive house was vacant and uninhabitable and didn’t have working toilets, the GOP congressmen said in a letter to John R. Lausch Jr., the U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Illinois.

Because of the supposed horrid condition of his mansion, Pritzker was able to claim over $330,000 in tax refunds.

An investigation by the Cook County inspector general found that the candidate removed the toilets in 2015 — 10 days before an official appraisal of the property.

An email discovered in the investigation revealed that Pritzker’s wife, Mary Kathryn, “directed that the toilets be removed for the express purpose of allowing the house to be declared uninhabitable,” the lawmakers said.

Illinois has a long history of sending its governors to prison – most recently with Democrat Rod Blagojevich, who infamously tried to sell the vacant Senate seat left by then-President-Elect Barack Obama.

Pending good behavior, Blagojevich is eligible for release in May 2024. 

Will Pritzker follow suit? Only time will tell.
