Wilson calls AG investigation a “witch hunt’

By Bill Cameron, WLS-AM News

(CHICAGO)  Willie Wilson is crying foul about Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s office and some aldermen aligned with the mayor raising questions about his cash giveaways.

Willie Wilson has one word for what’s happening to him, “It, it, it, it’s a witch hunt!”

He says his foundation’s paperwork is up to date and what’s really going on here is this, “I think it just shows they’re trying to play dirty politics here. As corrupt as Chicago is when Rahm Emanuel spends money, he spends the taxpayers dollars. When I spend money, I spend my own money to help.”

The attorney general’s office says it’s not really investigating Willie’s Foundation but is only asking some questions and a city council hearing is as yet not scheduled.
