Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker is under a federal criminal investigation after removing toilets from his Chicago mansion to avoid paying $330,000 in property taxes.

Pritzker attempted this scheme to pull a fast one over the Cook County taxpayers last year. This is the same guy trying to RAISE YOUR TAXES. Hypocrisy at its finest.

Report from Illinois Republican Party:

A law enforcement source has revealed that Governor J.B. Pritzker, his wife, and brother-in-law are under federal criminal investigation for their Chicago mansion toilet removal “scheme to defraud” Cook County taxpayers. Last year, it was revealed that Pritzker, who is worth $3.5 billion, removed the toilets in his Chicago mansion so he could lower his property tax bill by $331,000.
