City plumbing inspector who nails others for working without permits accused of doing same thing

One of the things I love about living in the Chicago area is the entertaining misdeeds in which city workers get involved.  Here’s a story from the Chicago Sun-Times about an inspector who catches other people working without a permit.  He is alleged to have installed a flood control system without permits and was caught when he busted a water pipe.  It gets better. He called the city emergency number after the mishap and then asked the responding personnel to give him city-owned parts so he could fix the problem.  Apparently, this was a long standing tradition.  Unfortunately for him, the inspector who responded was a whistleblower on a separate corruption case.
