"Rahm Emanuel was thrown off the ballot for mayor of Chicago Monday by an Illinois appellate court panel, according to the Cook County Appellate Court's office.It is a shock to find a Democrat political insider like Emanuel can't get a court ruling to swing his way in Chicago.
The panel ruled 2-1 that Emanuel did not meet the residency standard to run for the city's top office.
"A candidate must meet not only the Election Code's voter residency standard, but also must have actually resided within the municipality for one year prior to the election, a qualification that the candidate unquestionably does not satisfy," the court stated in the decision."
"Emanuel is expected to appeal the decision to the Illinois Supreme Court, and a federal appeal could follow."No kidding.
