A published report says 13 members of Cook County Assessor Joe Berrios' family work for the county or other government agencies.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports the number was 15 but two retired.

Berrios has been in trouble for hiring family. An ethics board called on him to fire family on his staff and fined him for violating an anti-nepotism ban.

Berrios says family working for the government isn't new and he's being picked on.
