Mayoral Candidate hands out $200K to churchgoers. What?? Chicago Mayoral candidate Willie Wilson handed out $200K to churchgoers. I don’t know what church it was, but I would have loved to have been at that church service. Willie Wilson is running for Mayor against established candidate Rahm Emanuel, who also served under President Barack Obama. Now this may have made some churchgoers happy, but it made the Governor Bruce Rauner furious. According to reports, this isn’t the first time Mr. Wilson gave out money like this.
