Fritchey sells: Cook County Commissioner John Fritchey sold his Lincoln Park home for $990,000, according to ChicagoRealEstateDaily.com . This development took place after he was criticized for reportedly not paying more than $24,000 in property taxes. The sale resolves a foreclosure suit filed by Wells Fargo Bank in February that claims Fritchey and his wife, Karen, had defaulted on a $411,000 loan on the house. John Fritchey blames the loan and property-tax problems on the couple's pending divorce.
