Chicago Democrats have been buying votes with taxpayer money since the first alderman crawled out of the primordial mud, stood upright, put on a suit and got himself indicted.
But now that mayoral candidate Willie Wilson gives out his own cash$40,000 of itour public moralists are wagging their fingers at the poor man.
He thinks theyre lunatics. And I agree. Some are friends of mine, but on this topic, theyre just wrong.
Whats with some of these lunatics criticizing me? Thats my money Im giving away, Wilson told me. My dollars that Im spending. Theyre lunatics to get upset. Theyre trying to pull me down. But I think its wrong to pull a man down. Ive been doing this for years.
Dr. Wilson, you are correct. If a self-made multimillionaire wants to give out his own money, only a lunatic would say he cant.
What frosts me are smug reporters from out of town passing judgement on the good character of Chicago, saying this is just another episode of good old-fashioned Chicago politics.
As one of them told the story on a national TV network broadcast, he paused, then smirked.
You fool. You know nothing of the Chicago Way.
Our politicians never, ever hand out their own money. Giving out your own money is a sin, grounds for excommunication.
They keep their money, so their children and even their great-grandchildren can live large and go to Ivy League schools or Notre Dame and become lawyer statesmen.
They just squeeze cash from me, from you, and buy votes that way. Theyve been squeezing taxpayers for so long now, and so thoroughly, that people are fleeing the state because they cant afford the rising property taxes on their homes.

I do wish Kass would stop calling Occasional-Cortex “Alexandria the Great”.
How is this any worse than deep-pocket donors being given lucrative contracts and high-paying jobs funded by government money?
Democrats usually give money away that’s been stolen from other people. That’s their version of morality.
Wait...a Democrat has to give out money to get elected in Chi-town?
I mean ChIraq
They have been buying votes for years. At least he is doing it out in the open.
Face of the demonrats....that is their standard modus operandi.....
If he gets elected, he hands out our money, without asking us.
Chicago any questions.
He’s buying votes.
