Cook County tax board analysts accused of bribery
CHICAGO (AP) — Two Chicago men who work for Cook County's tax appeals board are accused of accepting money in exchange for cutting assessments on three properties.
According to the U.S. attorney's office, Thomas Hawkins and John Racasi allegedly talked with others about facilitating property tax reductions in exchange for bribes. However, they are only charged with accepting one bribe, allegedly paid in 2008.
U.S. Magistrate Jeffrey Cole on Wednesday set bond at $10,000 for each man and ordered them not to discuss the case with each other.
