Man shot while canvassing for candidate in Chicago

"Politics ain't beanbag," a character in a story set in Chicago over 100 years ago said.

And it still isn't, particularly in Chicago's violent Englewood.

From Fox Chicago:
A man who was out canvassing for a Chicago aldermanic candidate was shot and wounded Sunday.

Maxwell Little, 22, was at 66th and South Marshfield in the Englewood neighborhood recording a video for Facebook when he was shot in the leg. Little was hospitalized in stable condition.

Little posted a Facebook message from his hospital bed saying, "This was no random shooting. Someone wanted me dead."

Community activist Jedidiah Brown has just parked his car to help campaign with 15th ward candidate Joseph Williams. There were about a dozen people around including Williams’ two young children.
