The Chicago Sun Times is reporting that Rahm’s mayoral bid has hit a significant barrier: A Court ruling that he does not meet the residency requirement and should be removed from the ballot:
Rahm Emanuel should not appear on the Feb. 22 Chicago mayoral ballot, according to a ruling issued by the state appellate court this morning.
Two of the three judges on the panel said Emanuel does not meet the residency requirement. The judges reversed an earlier decision by the Chicago Board of Elections that determined Emanuel was eligible. (Read the ruling here.)
Maybe Obama can show him how to get sealed court records of his opponents revealed so that no one wins. I mean, it is Illinois.
