Joe Berrios

Age: 62

Occupation: Assessor, Cook County

As assessor and the Cook County Democratic Party chairman, Berrios has plenty of power, but 2014 may be the year his clout runs out: His name surfaced in a bribery case last October, and a judge recently empowered Cook County’s inspector general to probe corruption in the assessor’s office.
