Willie Wilson defends cash handouts, rips Mayor Emanuel

Candidate for Mayor Willie Wilson was born in the Jim Crow south and says he's tired of being told what to do, especially when it involves his own money. One thing is for certain. Willie Wilson is a very interesting and unique man who is deeply connected to his faith. At a news conference Thursday he said  he’s worked hard for his money and if he wants to give it away, he will. A man who’s developed a reputation for helping the needy, a recent cash giveaway at a South Side church remains in the spotlight. It may have been legal, it was not an official campaign stop and he’s not officially candidate, but the Illinois Attorney General’s Office asked Wilson’s foundation to provide more information. Wilson called a news conference to complain about the scrutiny.
