Report: 13 in Berrios' family with government jobs
A published report says 13 members of Cook County Assessor Joe Berrios' family work for the county or other government agencies.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports the number was 15 but two retired. All 15 members of the family receive more than $1 million yearly in wages and pension payments.
Berrios has been in trouble for hiring family. An ethics board called on him to fire family on his staff and fined him for violating an anti-nepotism ban.
The newspaper says all six of Berrios' siblings work for or recently retired from jobs with the county, state or Chicago Public Schools. All three of his children are state or county employees.
Berrios says family working for the government isn't new in any large U.S. city and he's being picked on.
