CHICAGO, Feb. 17 (UPI) -- Chicago mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel said he will donate money to charity if the person behind the @MayorEmanuel Twitter reveals his or her identity.
Emanuel announced on Roe Conn and Richard Roeper's WLS-AM, Chicago, show Tuesday he will donate "$2,500 or $5,000" to the charity of the Twitter user's choice "if they will make public who they are" after the mayoral election, the Chicago Tribune reported Thursday.
The candidate said he is a fan of the user's profanity-laced tongue-in-cheek tweets.
@MayorEmanuel has not officially responded to the offer, but made a post Tuesday night about a broken car radio that appeared to reference Emanuel's pledge.
"I swear to ... god, I will donate $2500 to the charity of your choice if you can come and fix this ... radio," the expletive-laced post read.
