Illinois attorney general looking at candidate's foundation

CHICAGO (AP) – The Illinois attorney general’s office is looking at a Chicago mayoral candidate’s charitable foundation after he’s handed out more than $300,000 in cash and checks to local residents.

The Dr. Willie Wilson Foundation calls the office’s action an investigation that’s politically motivated by Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s allies.

A spokeswoman for Attorney General Lisa Madigan says the office wants additional information about the foundation’s spending by Aug. 23.

The state’s Board of Elections has said Wilson didn’t break campaign finance laws if the money wasn’t from his campaign.
