Tax Cheat

A "scheme" is oftentimes something against the law. If you cheat the government of many hundreds of thousands of dollars, it's definitely against the law. Paying it back is pretty much an admission of wrongdoing. Shouldn't this make him ineligible to be governor?
  • Democratic governor candidate J.B. Pritzker will repay the Cook County treasurer’s office more than $330,000 worth of property tax breaks and tax refunds that the county’s inspector general contended he obtained as a result of a “scheme to defraud” taxpayers, his campaign said Tuesday.

    The move came a day after a confidential report from Inspector General Patrick Blanchard became public, casting new light on an old line of attack by Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, who criticized Pritzker as a “tax cheat” over the removal of toilets to help obtain a property tax reduction from an adjoining Gold Coast mansion he purchased.

    Blanchard found that Pritzker’s wife, M.K. Pritzker, asked a contractor in 2015 to remove the mansion’s five toilets to make the home uninhabitable so it could be reassessed at a lower value. M.K. Pritzker’s brother and her personal assistant later made “false representations” in sworn affidavits to the assessor about the mansion’s condition and when the toilets were removed, Blanchard found.
We've been in plenty of homes with broken or non-existent plumbing and there were plenty of people (or folks) living there, but we don't think they were getting tax breaks amounting to hundreds of thousands.

I contend that an asshole was in on this... and a scum bag would be willing to forward it. Hey JB... I am sure you know people who would set you up to get 2x or 3x the going rent via section 8. That’s another scum bag thing to do since he foes not want to sell it

The real concern is, did JB ever throw an ice cube at anyone while he was a teenager or in college? It doesn't matter what any Democrat does. They can leave a teenager in a sinking car, write an article about feeling up a chick in high school while she was drunk, lie about military service, go after the females accusing your husband of rape, screw the 21 year old intern in the oval office, sending sick pics to teenager girls or beat the shit out of their girlfriends and get cleared immediately without an investigation because there's no proof. I can go on and on. But God help any of them if they allegedly drank a beer in high school or God forbid, allegedly threw an ice cube at someone because that shit cannot be tolerated. Be a Democrat, especially a gigantic fat one. You can get away with anything. #WALK AWAY!

I'm not a Republican, thought myself a Democrat, at least in principle, but there's NO WAY I can vote for Pritzker. The man is corrupt, vile, and stupid. The man is a self-entitled narcissistic boor of a billionaire, who apparently can't pass a filet mignon sandwich when he sees one. "Born Rich" isn't sufficient qualification to be an Alderman, much less Governor of Illinois. And it speaks volumes on HOW CORRUPT local Democratic Party politics are, that a numb-nuts billionaire like Pritzker, neck-deep into the Blagovich scandal, can nonetheless buy himself the ticket-spot as Democratic candidate for Governor of our sad-sack state.

If Pritzker is elected, and polls indicate he's a sure win, then Illinois voters will truly be held hostage to TAX AND SPEND governance for more years to come. Last one out of Illinois, out of Cook County, out of Chicago, please turn Buckingham Fountain off. Chicago is certainly becoming another Detroit, another Baltimore, another bankrupt corrupt Democratic Party-controlled hot mess. No wonder Rahm bailed; can't blame him. When the ship is sinking, you either head for the lifeboats or drown. We're all drowning here.

He should be charged criminally and forced to pay restitution through the courts, plus fees and cost. Kind of like the consent decree. Hey attorney general, where are you? So if I go in a store, steal money, get caught, I can just say I will pay it back? No charging, court appearances, or entering of pleas? As flounder would say; oh boy isn’t this great.

Too bad Illinois doesn't have a REAL Attorney General instead of little Lisa 'I see nothing' Madigan. Just from this article it appears that Fatso Pritzker committed Tax Fraud. At the least it sure seems like it's worth investigating. And Fatso paying the money he originally defrauded doesn't absolve him of guilt.

Forget the Crook County States Attorney looking into any 'irregularity'. I don't think a Cook County States Attorney ever prosecuted a Cook County Democrat politician for any crimes. And I mean -- EVER -- like in the history of the state.

And these jackass politicians look in wonder when Illinois and Crook County are mocked for being the most corrupt governments in the nation.

(OT) With the scumbags bags stealing tires again on the westend of 008, beat 811 couple of ideas to make it harder to steal your tires:

1) get a good set of wheel locks best from the dealer factory fit and finish

2) they want to take all 4 tires and wheels as a "set" to make it harder park close to the curb, turn your steering wheel all the way to the left or right to make it harder to get front tires off especially the side by the curb, they want all 4 and may pass your vehicle for a better easier target!

3) maybe this so called commander could assign more beat cars in the area you know the area that respects our police, and pays heavily in property taxes how about it boss?

Pretty much guaranteed that Pritzker isn't pissing on the floor or shitting all over. If the toilets are gone, they're not living there.

Yeah, it's a scheme to lower their taxes, but hey - it worked didn't it. They had a spare house that didn't need the toilets at that time because no one was living there, and they figured out a way to lower their tax bill.

Worked out to $333K - which is some good money to remove the shitters for a while.

I'm assuming that once they decided to use the house again, or completed the renovations that the shitters went back in, and the place got reassessed at a higher amount.

Good for them. As for repaying it - whatever. $333K is a drop in the bucket for that guy. How much did he make off of the $333K he didn't have to pay? If he was truly sorry, he'd pay that into the kitty too, and add on another 100% because he was truly remorseful.

But everyone's saying "oh we got our $333K back!!!!! yippie..." and they have no idea how shit works when you're a billionaire.

Consider that if IL's taxes weren't so completely fucked, they might not have ever engaged in this chicanery to lower their taxes...

Pritzker isn't "Blue Blood", just a fat son of rich guy who made his money through dirty business dealings. These high-society Pritzkers are just one generation from their Mob Family roots. Do yourself a favor, read Gus Russo's excellent book on Mob, Daley Family, and politically-connected "Chicago Mogul" criminal-enterprise families, titled "SUPERMOB". Pritzkers are prominently featured. I wonder if Rauner ever read this book, because he'd understand and had navigated Chicago-Cook-Illinois politics far better if he had.

===================
if you had put away 15% in your 401k plan your whole working life you would certainly be able to retire with a very nice income stream. Virtually anyone who worked 40 years and put away 15% of it would have more than $1,000,000 to live off when they retired, even with no employer contribution. Between that and SS you should be able to have a nice retirement. It is not someone else's fault you spent that money on something else.
