Dem mayoral candidate in Chicago hands out cash to potential voters
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.
A Wilson aide said 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.
