Busted! Look Which Dem. Just Gave Cash To Voters

A Chicago Mayoral candidate is reportedly handing out cash to potential voters.

This is insane, something that the mafia would do in Italy do get votes.

A millionaire Democratic candidate for Chicago mayor reportedly handed out hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash to church members on Sunday to help them pay their property taxes.

“My wife and I have been blessed by God to be able to get a few of the material things out of life and so it’s up to us to now continually to share back with all of you all and others,” Willie Wilson, a prominent businessman and philanthropist, said in remarks at an event at New Covenant Missionary Baptist church on Chicago’s South Side, according to WGN News.

I know you liberals out there don’t believe so we have a video for you.

A Wilson aide said that the candidate gave out $300,000 to 2,000 people through his nonprofit charitable foundation.

F. Scott Winslow, a spokesman for Wilson’s mayoral campaign, told WGN News that there was no violation of campaign finance laws since the event was not connected to the campaign. He added that Wilson has donated about $500,000 since his campaign launch.

“While he happens to be a candidate, he’s been a philanthropist for 30 years,” Winslow said.

Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner (R), who is up for reelection in November, also spoke at the event, where he discussed his efforts to overhaul the state’s criminal justice system and improve education funding. He briefly discussed property taxes.
