BUILDINGS DEPT. | Investigation might not be over

Two more city inspectors were charged in an ongoing investigation into corruption in the city’s Buildings Department.
To date, 10 city inspectors have been charged in various corruption cases on state and federal levels.
Federal indictments announced Friday charged two additional city inspectors, including plumbing inspector Eric Reyes, who is accused of lying to federal authorities about whether he asked another person to create a phony letter of intent. Letters of intent are supposed to ensure that a listed contractor is properly licensed.
Building inspector David Johnson was also charged with conspiring with a contractor and another unnamed individual to take bribes in return for fixing building permits or code problems.
The unnamed co-conspirator in Johnson’s indictment was a supervising building inspector.
The fact that the person was named as a co-conspirator but not charged could be a sign the probe continues to expand.
Note: I will be getting more information on the Shakman Deal as soon as it makes more sense. Ever get the feeling the FEDS are tightening the noose and have figured out the Chicago Political Game. Patrick McDonough
