The question may be, who owns the Illinois Supreme Court ? Former White House Chief of Staff and ex-Congressman Rahm Emanuel is being tossed from the mayoral ballot by a three judge panel of appeals court judges.
They say he has not met the residency requirement to run for mayor......He says his job in DC was special and that service to his President precludes his lack of residency.
The city Board of Elections ruled in Emanuel's favor....But now...with ballots being printed...Mr Emaniel is asking the state's highest court to cut him some slack.
There is a lot of muscle on Rahm's side...not the least of which is the Presidency.
He clearly did not live in the Windy City as his house was rented out.....But it's hard to imagine the removal will hold.
