    Buildings project manager arrested - BY FRAN SPIELMAN, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
    On the same day that Inspector General David Hoffman helped conduct that raid, an electrical inspector assigned to Construction and Permits was charged with accepting $16,000 in bribes.

    In exchange for a pair of $8,000 cash payments allegedly stuffed in Wendy’s bags, Daryl Williams is accused of looking the other way while a contractor added residential units to an extensive remodeling project without obtaining the required zoning change or building permits.

    The investigation against Williams was reportedly aided by a building inspector who was similarly accused, but had the charges against him dropped in exchange for his undercover cooperation.

    Berger’s arrest marks the latest in a series of scandals for the two city departments charged with guaranteeing building safety in Chicago.
