Pastor Brooks campaigned with Republican Bruce Rauner in October.
FOX News reported:
A black Chicago pastor is speaking out about death threats he has received after publicly supporting the Republican candidate for governor.
The harassment didn’t end there. This weekend, nearly $8,000 was stolen from New Beginnings Church’s collection box.
Corey Brooks told Steve Doocy this morning that the box had been there for six months, with members putting in change and small amounts.
The money was going to go toward the construction of a community center on the South Side.
“The young people have nowhere to go. They have nowhere to express or enhance their lives. … Our church has been working diligently to raise funds. We haven’t depended on the government to give us anything,” said Brooks.
The robbery came shortly after threats to Brooks over his support for Bruce Rauner for governor against Democrat incumbent Pat Quinn.
“I’m definitely not backing down,” said Brooks, explaining that he supports Rauner as the best choice for the state and the city.
Brooks said a lot of people are upset that he’s “going outside the status quo” by not supporting a Democrat in Chicago.
