Mayoral candidate Willie Wilson is being critiqued for giving away money this past weekend. He attended "New Covenant Missionary Baptist Church as “one of the biggest property tax relief assistance” events of the year. On its Facebook page, the foundation said Wilson would be “giving away $300,000 to struggling homeowners", according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
In a video posted on Facebook, you can see Willie shaking hands with church members. What Willie said of the giveaway is that "it's a normal thing", for him to give away money on a regular basis. Many are saying, however, that the whole things is a play to win the race for mayor.
