    Illinois Supreme Court Stops Printing of Chicago Mayoral Ballot - FoxNews.com

    On Tuesday, the high court said that if any ballots are printed, they must include the former White House chief of staff's name while the court decides whether to take the case.
    They say Illinois courts have never required candidates to be physically present in the state to seek office there.
    You can seek office in a state and not ever have had to live there? News to me.

    Rahm lived in Chicago for a long time. The issue is apparently being physically present in the state.

    But, conservatives had someone run in Illinois a few years back who didn't reside in Illinois and never had. Dude ran against Obama, in fact.

    Are you claiming that an elected federal office, US senator for example, is the same as a municipal office? If not, you might be intereseted in knowing that the code that the judges applied to determine if Rahm qualifies only deals with people wanting to run for municipal office.

    It's not the same, but my point shows that neither side (left or right) actually gives a **** about residency except when it suits their agenda.

    In the end, I don't give a crap who ends up being the mayor because no matter who gets in, I get ****ed.

    It doesn’t show that at all. The law in question is a law that only pertains to local elections. Trying to apply the local election law to a federal election and saying “see, they did it too” seems like something only a hack would support.
