CHICAGO A detail tucked in a Fox 32 investigative report about Illinois contractors trekking across the border to build a new mansion at Gov. J.B. Pritzker's Wisconsin horse farm raised the eyebrow of somebody who knows how deals get done in America's most corrupt state.
The contractor doing construction on J.B. Pritzker's Wisconsin horse farm won a $9 million coronavirus contract that was part of the state's pandemic response.
The "dwelling contractor" listed on Wisconsin building permits, Bulley & Andrews, is the same company caught up in the alleged "scheme to defraud" Cook County taxpayers by removing toilets from one of Pritzker's Gold Coast mansions. The toilet scheme is still being investigated by the feds.
In April, Bulley & Andrews scored a taxpayer funded firm-fixed-price contract worth nearly $9 million to convert the former WestLake Hospital in Melrose Park into a COVID-19 acute-care site. The contractor also worked as a subcontractor doing similar work at Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin. Both jobs got done, but neither site opened.
The contracts were issued as part of a $1.7 billion effort spearheaded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which Bulley & Andrews hadn't worked with since 1944. A Courthouse News investigation raised concerns that much of the work had been "awarded to contractors without transparency."
Pritzker's administration didn't respond to a request for an interview about the state's role coordinating the work on the alternate COVID-19 treatment sites with the federal government.

He’s a Dem, the people of Illinois love it. Give them more of it, lots and lots more.
By now-its apparent that the whole virus sham has been devised as a DNC power grab and ALSO, a way to get the money they will need to campaign against Trump .
Weren’t we hearing that the DNC was positively skinned before all this started?
I’d love to know how large their war chest is now...because it’s obvious where the money is coming from!
