DescriptionCook County Commissioner William Beavers was indicted Thursday on allegations of tax fraud.

The Chicago Tribune reports that Beavers, 77, allegedly failed to report thousands dollars of income he withdrew from his campaign accounts, as well as his county discretionary spending account. Beavers -- who sometimes refers to himself as "The Hog With The Big Nuts" -- allegedly used some of the money to gamble with and used $68,000 from a campaign account to boost his city pension. Between 2006 and 2008, he is accused of withdrawing $225,000 from the accounts in question.

Beavers stands charged with three separate counts of filing inaccurate federal income tax returns, in addition to another count of obstructing and impeding the Internal Revenue Service, CBS Chicago reports.
