Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker is the subject of a federal probe into a tax dodging scheme that dogged his gubernatorial campaign.
WBEZ radio in Chicago says a law-enforcement source confirmed the investigation that has been ongoing since October.
The investigation centers on Pritzker’s plan to remove toilets from a Chicago mansion in order to have it deemed uninhabitable for a tax break of around $330,000.
Pritzker paid the money back to Cook County.
He told reporters Wednesday that he’s not worried about the investigation.
Pritzker’s wife and brother-in-law are also said to be under investigation.
