Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle has fired comptroller Constance Kravitz.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports a routine audit found Kravitz's office overstated tax revenues by 90 million.

Recently, Kravitz was criticized at a county board meeting over an error-filled report her office released about county furlough days.
