We don't have to go into all the details, this man is stinkin' rich. Even though he's listed as a Republican, he's even learned how the system works. When you need something done - you write oodles of campaign contribution checks to your local Democratic public official, who, ironically, he beat out in the 2012 "Readers Choice" award; by a margin of 2 to 1.
Who knows, in 100 years from now the city may even rename Rogers Park to Pritzker Park? That's if he doesn't pull out some pocket change and buy it first.
